Dear friends, don’t forget to pull out your camera today and take a few photos. They don’t need to be perfect. They don’t need to beautiful. It doesn’t matter if you own a DSLR, a cheap point and shoot or just the camera in your phone.
Someday these simple snapshots will take on a greater meaning, I promise. As I sat to post these photos this morning, I suddenly remembered almost identical images I took in 2009. Only then, Mordecai was only eight and was sword fighting with five-year old Hezekiah.
See? I love this photo even more now than I did when I took it four years ago. Don’t save your camera for special occasions, birthdays and large events. I take photos nearly every day, certainly every week and I am so happy I have these memories.
The seasons change and our children grow. I am so thankful for these images from the past.
