Ordinary Things of Now

Most often, the things I want to remember
are the everyday, ordinary things.  Too often, though, I forget.
Recently, I set out to capture snapshots of life as just as it is ~ right now.
Life has a way of changing, and before we know it, it's different.
Just a few of the everyday, ordinary things of now...

Emma's room as it looked when I happened past.


All prepped and ready for our portfolio visit.


Working away at his new location in the school room.


Making mud pies ~ a tradition.


The supplies.


Birthday cards on the mantel.


Birthday balloons on the floor ~ another tradition.


Just prior to the first lesson on our newer van (it's seven) ~


Looking a little too pleased with the idea, methinks.  :)


Sunlight on the floor ~ the giddiness begins.


May the Lord help us all to enter into the moments He gives ~
they truly are gifts from His hand.

Many Blessings,
Camille

What a great reminder to stop and appreciate the simple things. Thanks for your sweet words again, Camille! And yes, you did send the verses~ I feel blessed twice by the reminder of God's promises:)

I'm liking the simple and ordinary...too!

Reminds me of the chalk drawing I have in my kitchen..

"Cherish the plain and ordinary of today."

I constantly need the reminder..

Dear Heather ~ Thank you, my friend...thank you! God is Good. Hugs to you! :)

Dear Jennifer Jo ~ They actually start out on the bed while the birthday child sleeps, but, they always end up on the floor. :)

Dear Terri ~ So glad you were blessed my friend....they have encouraged my heart so much lately. :)

Dear Bevy ~ We always need the reminder, I think! At least, I do. :)

Many Blessings,
