Most of the pictures in our iPhoto library of me are ones I took myself. Arm outstretched, faces squished, cheesy grin…these are my favorite type of picture.
Josh says it’s because I like control. He’s partially right.
I like the feeling of these pictures. Instead of focusing on if I’m smiling right, if my eyes are open, or will I look bad, I’m focusing on if I’m cutting our heads off.
Sometimes I DO cut our heads off, sometimes only one of us makes it in the picture. Then sometimes, every once in a while, a moment in our life is captured
a trip to the doctor
a birthday lunch
a new haircut
a wedding date
an evening stroll.
Our life is suspended in time. Instead of passing us by and fading away, we look back and the moment is remembered.
Wasn’t that fun?
Look how we’ve changed?
Oh, how I miss those days.
And this is what I offer up to you here. Snapshots into our life. Fragments of the things God is teaching me as I struggle to be the best lil wifey and momma I can be.
So just in case you’re wondering why I’m at this everyday, what compels me to offer up my internal monologue to the general public, now you know.
I’m capturing moments for the future.
“So these days were to be remembered and celebrated…” Esther 9:28
What’s something you do to capture today for the future?
How do you celebrate the little things?
