4 Things

My friend Katie J has a blog challange this summer to post about 4 things. It can be 4 photos, 4 topics, 4 anything. So I decided I would do 4 for Fridays, however, last friday I was too busy to get online, so I'm late. But here's my 4 things:

1. We got new carpet upstairs last week. We exhaused ourselves ripping out old carpet and padding and moving furniture, but it was worth it.

2. I was a craft leader at VBS all last week. Fun crafts and some funny stories. Let me just share one:
The 3 year old preschool class I did craft with just learned about Moses and how his staff turned into a snake. So they had these cute wooden snakes to color with markers. A cute little boys said to me: "My papaw had a snake in his yard. He shot it and threw it in the damn backyard!" It was all I could do not to laugh. He didn't even have a clue he cussed. You just know he told the story just the way his Papaw tells it.

3. My kid wore his hair like this to VBS on crazy hair day.

4. I got a new truck this weekend.

Cardboard Testimonials

A fellow photographer friend of mine shared this video on her blog and it touched my heart so much, (I cried), that I wanted to share it with you. Our God is an Awesome God, full of mercy and grace. We can't earn it or work hard enough to deserve it. He gives it, free for the taking, just believe!
