Such a Slaker!

Sorry, y’all!  It’s been a busy week, and I still haven’t taken pictures of my gifts from Tuesday night with my favorites!  However, I do have good excuses!! =.)

After dinner on Tuesday, Marc was at his brother’s home, so I stopped by so I could see the gorgeous Karleigh.  We stayed and played with Karleigh for close to an hour!  She’s just precious! =.)

Then on Wednesday night, I had to stop by Brock & Wendy’s to pick up my painted pottery (again, I still don’t have pictures of them, either!!), and put a picture on her computer for a gift for Brock.  Then, I went to Mama and Daddy’s to help her with some craftiness as decorations for one of our family Christmas gatherings.  Then, I helped her set up Daddy’s gift…a laptop!  I think he’s going to love it!  Once he is able to figure out how to actually use it, that is! =.)

And then last night, we had our life group meeting.  We were wrapping gifts for our adopted family within our church.  I have so much fun with these people! =.)  And I took pictures, but not with my camera, so I don’t have anything to show you!  Sorry!


I’ve kind of decided that while I do love taking pictures, and I love having the pictures afterwards, I kind of want to be IN the moment, not just DOCUMENTING it.  Does that make sense?  I looked back through all of my pictures for the past year, and I’m disappointed for a few reasons.  One, I can remember the even so well, but I wasn’t really in the moment, so that disappoints me.  Two, I’m not in many of the pictures.  I was there, and I was at the event/memory, but I’m not in the pictures, so I want to remedy that for 2010. =.)


And this verse is just speaking to me right now.  So, I’ll share, in hopes that maybe this is a verse that God wants you to hear, as well. =.)

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12


Have a great weekend, y’all!  Stay warm! =.)  We might be getting some snow!  Exciting! =.)

I always want to be IN the moment, too! It's a difficult balance!
Love that verse!
