I am so excited about this blog post y’all! About a month ago, I got an e-mail about joining up with a great group of photographers to do a monthly 10 on 10 project. The object is to post 10 pictures on the 10th of every month that will give others a glimpse into my crazy, fun, hard, grace-needing, wild life! My initial reaction was to say NO…I didn’t want to add one more plate to all the others I feel like I am constantly spinning. Before I had a chance to respond, though, I was reminded of the desire I have had in the past few months to take more pictures of MY children. My computer and memory cards are full of pictures of other people…people I have enjoyed photographing and who have all become friends, but they are not pictures I can hang on my own walls because that would be kind of weird. I love the people I get to work with and I think they are beautiful, but in 50 years my kids aren’t going to sit down with my computer and want to flip through files of someone else’s wedding. I want to take more pictures of the people I am closest to, the people I am with all of the time, the people I love more than anyone or anything else…Matt, Marlee, Gretta, and Phen. Once I realized this project aligned with what I had already been feeling, I decided I needed to jump right in! Thank-you so much, Anna, for including me in this. I am truly grateful!!!!!!!!
So, folks, this is it! The very first of my 10 on 10 project! I hope you enjoy getting to know us a little better by peeking into what we do all day, everyday! I would be honored if you would come back and visit on April 10…May 10…June 10…and so on, and so on!
“Our Maker did not create only the robin and the trout but streams and skies full of wonder, splendor, and variety. The sun never paints the same mural twice. Every moment, each step to the left, and we see new hues of majesty on the horizon. He does not only design the snowflakes that will be admired, but He uniquely crafts the ones that will melt into the muddy spring slurry unnoticed. He gave us every fruit bearing tree to eat from, save one. There is no stern look on his face as we enjoy both the apple and the pear. He has spared nothing from us, not even his Son. We have been given “every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” and “the richness of his grace, which he lavished upon us.”
