iHeartfaces is having a “Life in Pictures” entry with a theme of “My favorite things”. And since I don’t suffer from diarrhea of the mouth 😉 and shamelessly share everything on here anyway….here’s a few of my favorite things:
Obviously, my first love is Christ Almighty. I love that Christianity is the only religion that is based on a personal relationship with Him, not one of duty or fear or heritage. I love that my faith is based on God’s GRACE, and not on anything I could do to be good enough. He loves me right where I am. He made the ultimate sacrifice, so I didn’t have to. All I have to do is believe. Sadly, I have no pictures of Him. I have pictures of people in His Presence though, which is almost as good:
My honey is another of my very favorite things. We are very different, and yet, somehow, our 18th wedding anniversary is coming up in February, and we still like each other. 😀 I love his sense of humor, I love his devotion to our children, I love his honesty and integrity….
I love my children! I am so proud of them! (Gosh, I still need to fix that photo and get those people out of the background! HAHAHA)
I love my parents! They are utterly amazing: their faith in God, their love for each other, their parenting, their friendship, their example, and their HEART! I could work my whole life and still not be half the people my parents are. (Just don’t tell her I used this photo AGAIN. 😉 She doesn’t like it. LOL)
I dearly LOVE FALL! It’s my FAVORITE season!
I LOVE new babies!! I love their smell, their squishy bodies, their squooshed up faces….and I love friends who let me hold theirs and take all the photos I want to!
And of course, I love photography. I love the (almost) instant gratification of it! (compared to painting I used to do) I love every aspect of it (minus the cost of new toys….that kinda bites)!
(Gosh, OK, I have to admit it: I really like poison dart frogs too. Is that odd?)
Some of my very favorite things I do not have a picture of….Pepsi. Pepsi is my personal drug of choice. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do any sort of drugs (other than Excedrin migraine….you are my friend….), I do Pepsi. Yes, I’m aware how bad it is, and how it may kill me, but I’ll go out with a smile on my face….and a Pepsi in my hand. And Pam promised me she’d stick one in my coffin after I’m gone….one for the road. Thanks, Pam. I heart you, too. I love Willow tree angels….dearly love these things. Sadly, I am the mother of boys, so I have few. I love beautiful, delicate teacups and saucers as well….but again, sadly, I am the mother of boys, and they are packed away, along with my tea set from China Mike gave me on his last mission trip there. I secretly love opera, but don’t tell anyone. I love quiet. And I love sleep…that may be my favorite…
Thanks Amy and Angie for this theme this week! It’s nice getting to know the people BEHIND the cameras!
