My Mother’s Day was low key and I’m fine with that. The wind chime pictured above my son and daughter picked out for me as a gift! Isn’t it beautiful? They know I love Sunflowers and had been wanting a chime for the yard for a bit. What’s neat about this chime is that it’s also solar powered. At night, it emanates a soft glow in the center of the flower. It’s very pretty! There’s something calming about the chime sound it makes when a slight breeze comes our way. I love it’s not just a gift I can enjoy but everyone else too.
A few of these photos for taken when my family and I went for a day during Easter weekend to the beach. We hadn’t been to the beach in over two years so it was really nice to get back! The weather was perfect and better than we expected for on April day (usually it does nothing but rain here in Oregon during this month)! Enjoy the pictures! I plan on sharing more from our trip soon!
I had a lot of fun a couple of years ago when I followed a monthly photo challenge hosted by Angie @ Blessed Beyond Words! This photo challenge inspired me to look a little closer at my surroundings and share my thoughts upon the subject matter too. After wanting to add a little more personality about my family and myself to my blog recently, I agreed I should participate in yet another challenge!
After some Googling and some Pintrest hunting for a challenge, I came across the 30-Day Gratitude Photo Challenge. This challenge seems to be a year or so old but that’s not going to stop me from using the subject prompts for each day of posting.
I’m starting this challenge in the word of God and taking to heart the following verses;
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change”. -James 1:7
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! – Psalm 107:1
For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer. 1 Timothy 4:4-5
I’m very excited to get started and would typically post on the 1st of a month, but since my family and I will be on our Summer vacation, I’ll be posting the week after. I hope you come back to see what I’ll be sharing!
