Devoted {Into the Word Wednesday}

A few weeks ago I came home to find these on my porch.

It was a special occasion and finding these waiting for me was completely unexpected. 

Of course I started to wonder.  Where did they come from?   Who could have dropped them off? 

Then I had an inkling. 

Sure enough.  I opened the card and it was from one of the sweetest women I know. 

I was reminded of the verse Romans 12:10.

“Be devoted to one another in love.  Honor one another above yourselves.”

Here are the top 5 reasons I love my dear friend. 

  1. She is one of the sweetest, most genuine people I’ve ever met. 
  2. I know that no matter what she’d be there if I needed her.
  3. No matter how long it’s been since I’ve seen her, it’s as if we’d never been apart.
  4. Whenever I hear from her, I can feel my heart smile.
  5. She makes me want to be a better person.

This is what true friendship is.  I only wish it didn’t take me this long to find it! 

She and I are the epitome of this verse.  We are truly devoted to one another through thick and through thin. 

Do you have a friendship like this? 

If not, keep looking!  They are out there.

Cherished {5 Minute Friday}

This is the very reason.

The reason I love it so very much.  The very reason I wish I had more time to capture them. 

All of the sweet, cherished moments.  Each one is unique.  Each one is special.  Each one can quickly take me back to the very moment. 

The moment comes rushing back.  I’m flooded with the sweet cherished memories of every single moment I’ve captured with a simple photograph. 

A photograph can capture the image of a sweet tender 2 year old hands.  The sweet, chubby cheeks I want to remember for all time.  The special birthday and Christmas memories of the year that has passed. 

As we grow a little older each year, I do my best to capture each and every one. 

A beautiful reminder of the past as we head into the future.

P = Photography {All About Me}

I’m not sure I need a post about this one! 

I’m in love with photography. 

It all started in high school when I took a class at the college I was attending.  I know that sounds weird but I took courses at a college for high school credit in high school.  It wasn’t digital photography but I still fell in love. 

Then once the first little one came along, I fell in love once again.  First, with my sweet bundle then once again with those memories that are captured in a photograph. 

I have a wonderfully, beautiful friend that is helping me tweak and learn some things so I can start my own studio.  I’ve been pretty much ready but need to just jump in. 

Yes, I know, just do it.  I’ve been told by many!!  It’s a bit nerve-wracking to just jump right into a new business. 

Well.  It’s happening. 

I have the name all picked out.  A few final details and it will be official.  I won’t be able to quit my day job right now while my husband finishes school but at least it will be in place.  We’ll start out slow and go from there. 

I don’t post pictures of my kids faces or pictures of my clients on the blog.  Those of course are my favorites but I’m just not willing to post them here.  Trust me when I tell you that I have the cutest kids you’ve ever seen! 

I’ll leave you with a few faves!  You can also click on the picture to read the original post.
