Today is Friday, a day where the gang over at Susanne's Living to Tell the Story link up to share the highlights from their week. Come on and join us!
This week flew by in a blur, so it's a little difficult to choose highlights ...
1. The first thing I thought of was how much I enjoy trying to take pictures of nature. I have a lot to learn about it, but I keep trying. (I'm dreaming of a camera with better zoom!) Anyway, here is my attempt to capture raindrops on the leaves of a plant.
Yup, those specks on the leaves are raindrops!
2. Peaceful mornings: One morning this week, my daughter and I noticed this deer standing next to our shed. It was a foggy morning and she got a shot of her through the window screen. I think it just added to the fogginess. This doe was joined by a couple of her girlfriends and then a few minutes laters, two young bucks moseyed along after them. After a snack in the field adjoining our house, they were on their way.
3. Believe it or not, it will soon be graduation time. Monday night, Alexa, Elissa and I sat down to get Alexa's graduation invitations sent out. I don't know if I can call this a highlight or not, because I'm sad she is grown-up, but I'm also proud of her. I did love the senior pictures we put in with the invitations. Here is one:
What's even cooler is that the photographer of this picture is none other than my youngest daughter, Malia!
4. Thursday night, we attended a regional choir program at the community college that Malia participated in. It was awesome! Their theme was big band music and I loved it. There were 230 voices in the choir comprised of area high school students and the college students. They sang their hearts out and really made the rafters ring! I love attending this event every year. There is something so emotional about hearing great music and seeing all those fresh faces singing with joy written all over them. It gets me every time. (One year, I actually cried at their song selections ... what can I say? I'm tender.)
5. Quote of the week: "If you're experiencing a trial right now, recognize its ultimate outcome: a deeper dependence upon God and gratefulness for your victory in Christ." … David Jeremiah, Turning Point Devotional, April 27, 2010
