My Family



We haven't had a family picture worth sharing since 2008. So on Thanksgiving, I gathered my family and positioned them, then had my aunt take a few pictures on my camera. Thank you Aunt Pheobe! I think it turned out pretty good and Yes, there are chickens in the background. :) I am now using flickr for blogging, so we'll see how that works with my pcitures.

Macro Friday


While we were at the football game, I got a little bored....so I was taking pictures of the water bottle. I loved the way this one focus' on the drops inside the bottle. :) I have a post coming with the pictures from Staurday. I just haven't had the time to sit down and work on it. Hopefully sometime this weekend if I can steal the computer for a little bit. :)

Macro Friday


As I was walking home from Church on day;
I saw these lovely red nearing leaves my feet.
Since this Autum season is leaving fast;
I had to stop and shoot one or two,
Little photos for you!

O.K. I need to work on my rhyming a little bit...but have a lovely weekend all of my dear blogger friends!

Curch Building Project part 3

Hey there! How are all my dear blog friends? The church is almost under roof! I think they said there were five more pieces of metal to put on. :) Well, as always, I'll let the pictures 'n captions tell the story. They do a much better job than I. :)

My wonderful Daddy workin' hard.
Kinda artistic?? They are working on the third story here.

And now we skip to the next day...
Dear Rain,
Won't you come after the roof is up? Pretty Please?

Gracias.
The rain didn't listen to us and poored down pretty hard. We had fun sweeping water for a while...
...then someone came up with the idea of a shopvac to suck the water up with...saved the day. :)
Then someone else [after the rain was slowing down] thought of putting these gutter things in so the water wouldn't run down the wall and lead into the church.
"Now why didn't they think of this an hour ago?"
Skip a week or so...finally putting the roof on!
"Hey up there! Smile!"
Well that's all for now. Come back again!

I Am Yours


"I Am Yours"

Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise;
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my hand, and let them moce at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee;
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

(Chorus)
I am Yours, set apart for You.
I am Yours, hungry for Your truth.
Take my life, You are all I live for: I am Yours.

Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King.
Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from Thee;
Filled with messages from Thee.

(Repeat Chorus)

Take my will and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne;
It shall be Thy royal throne.

(Repeat Chorus)

We sang this song at Church last week, and I really loved the words. It is true. We are God's own children, and we need to give our lives to Him and have Him direct us. I found it HERE on youtube.
