30 Days of Photos - Day 28 (only 2 left...phew!)

A Photo of Something You're Afraid Of.....


Tuna.  Yes, there is a story.  No, you will not hear it.

Stingray.  Also, yes, there's a story. 

Okay, I'm sure everyone would be afraid of this.  But my fear is so.........unrealistic. 

Yes - beautiful.  But I'll enjoy it from the beach, thank-you-very-much. 

One Thing I Know For Sure:  I'm a 'pool' kind of girl.

30 Days of Photos - Day 24

So, since I've been slacking and have missed a few photo days....I guess I should catch up.  So today - it's your lucky're getting 3 for the price of 1.  Yes, friends - the deal of a lifetime

A Photo of Something You Wish You Were Better At....

Anyone who knows me should know this.  It's widely known (and joked about....) that I stink at this....

 ....and this.......

 ....and this......
Don't be fooled - I know this girl looks like she could be my twin, but this is not a photo of me :)

Yes, even this sport (or should I say 'leisurly hobby') does not come easily to me....

A Photo of Your Favorite Book.....

Want to know what the persecuted church really looks like?  Check this book out - and aside from being moving, it's an incredibly interesting read...and a fast one, too!

This has completely revolutionized my thoughts about the Holy Spirit and His purpose. 

 And since I'm a preschool teacher...I had to throw a few of these in :)

Little Choco can't find a mommy that looks just like him!  Finally Mrs. Bear steps up to the challenge, and Choco realizes that his mothers appearance doesn't matter - when he meets her other children - a hippo, alligator, and pig!  Adorable story that lays foundations for discussions on adoption.

Everyone loves this one -
"You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care.
About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street."

Love this one - just because.  After bear wakes up from his winter nap, he realizes all his friends have been partyin' it up in his lair!  He says "you've snuck in my lair, and you've all had fun.  But me?  I was sleeping, and I have had....none."  and mouse says "Don't fret, don't fuss, look - see?  We can pop more corn, we can brew more tea!" 
Yes, I recited that from memory.  Sad.

A Photo of Something You'd Like to Change....

Yes - I have big goals :)  

After 7 years of being a preschool teacher...I have realized that I do change the world, one little person @ a time.  It's an honor to serve those little honeys....and they just love me sooooooo much. 

 One Thing I Know For Sure:  Today's post was fun....but I'm glad the 30 days is almost over :)

One Thing I Know For Sure:  I want my weekend back.

30 Days of Photos - Day 18

Anyone getting tired of "30 Days of Photos"?  I am....but, here goes....

A Photo of Your Biggest Insecurity....

My work!

Okay - so I know my family will always say "you're great!"  and  "you're so talented!"  but I always worry about what other photographers think about my work.  I've had no training - no classes - so I always feel like my photos are missing something.  

I know, get over it. 

One Thing I Know For Sure:  I have to quit worrying about it....

30 Days of Photos - Day 17

A Photo of Something That's Made a Huge Impact on My Life Recently......

This is the face that he gave me when I came home today.....

This guy totally surprised me today.  For those of you that don't know, we just finished our garage & entryway.  I've been bummin because we're so busy with other stuff, I thought it would never get painted.  Well...Jake took the day off of work today to paint the whole garage, and breezeway.  AND, he took off tomorrow to do some other very important things :)  You guys just don't even know how much this blessed me.

Ever been in a funk?  A 'why do I do what I do' kind of funk?  And 'if I didn't do what I do, I would have time to do other things'  kind of funk.  That's where I've been at lately.  Well...this pulled me right out of that funk, and gave me the motivation to kick it into high gear.  Enough moping! 

One Thing I Know For Sure:  I love him more & more each day.

30 Days of Photos - Day 16

A Photo of Someone Who Inspires You.....

Well, apparently I'm not feeling very inspired today.  Not that I can't think of anyone who inspires me - because I can think of a lot of people.  But I can't find a photo of this:

The family who, day after day, struggles to get ahead - struggles to make ends meet - but show up at work with joy in their hearts....

The single mother who has had every possible 'bad hand' dealt to her, but remains steadfast....

The man whose wife has died - leaving him with small children, but keeps focused & serving God....

Those are the things that inspire me.  People who come face to face with the reality of life and keep pluggin' away - all with an attitude of gratitude.  None of this 'woe is me' junk.  No.  "Thank you, Lord, for the blessings that I do have...".  That's inspiring.

One Thing I Know For Sure:  You can "Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you....."

30 Days of Photos - Day 15

A Photo of Something You Want to do Before You Die.....

I want to go here.......

And here.......

And here!

I want to eat this....

.....more than I eat this! 

I want a few of these.  This one is especially cute!

And the final thing I want to do before I die.......

 I want hair like this.  I don't care how I get it - if it's real or fake.  It doesn't matter.  I just want long hair. 

Seem superficial?!'s hard to find photos of "love the unloveable" and "serve those less fortunate" you're stuck with this :)

One Thing I Know For Sure:  Every 5 weeks, I say "I want to grow it out....".  My hair stylist thinks I'm nuts.

One Thing I Know For Sure:  I am so richly blessed by all the ladies in my life.
