I took this picture today:
If you are a photographer of sorts, then you know it takes about 30 pictures before you get one good one worth using and keeping for anything. So after about 60 pictures, I came up with this one…and a handful of others.
Pictures. Some people love posing. Others can’t stand it. I personally am awkward in front of a camera. But the older I get, the more I’ve come to see the priceless treasures that a camera can give.
We are not guaranteed tomorrow. We need to be intentional about making memories with our children and our family and friends. I may not be around next week, next month, next year…but I sure want my kids to remember me. I want my kids to remember those whom they consider important in their lives. I desire for my kids to pull out something tangible, when the clinging to faith is intangible.
I took this picture on Sunday:
My husband was telling the kids goodbye before he left for a week long mission trip to Nicaragua. It’s a keeper.
So if you are around me and I have out the camera, please do not shy away, or grimace at me if I pose you for a picture. Instead, please feel loved. I think you are important enough to remember!!
