A dear friend of mine did a photo shoot with us this fall. I was blown away by some of the pictures. My favorite is this one, as it completely captures how I admire my husband:
He’s brilliant and works very hard.
My second favorite photo was one of my kids.
She managed to capture the personalities of all three of them.
I’m not a fan of spilling the beans on my people’s personal lives without their permission, so suffice it to say that the photo will have to provide the details.
I do think a picture is worth a thousand words.
So when I counted my blessings today, I could reflectively linger on these images, thanking God for the gems they contain.
Today, when I read Proverbs 19, particularly verse 3, I was struck by how my husband has taken responsibility for his and our lives.
He is not a man of folly, but of hard work, diligence and perseverance.
And he consistently does his best, regardless of what he is doing.
Which is pretty stinkin’ good if you ask me.
So today, I dare you to let the people in your life know what you admire about them.
I sent my husband that first photo in an email and then told him how I admired him.
And I don’t care if I get a response.
Because it’s not about that. J
Double dog dare you to comment, share, or “subscribe” and join us in the journey via email.
Triple dog dare you to stop right now, and spend a few minutes thanking God for the wonder He’s blessed you with. Maybe your wealth isn’t counted in dollars, but in relationships – and if you see that, you are truly rich! J
This verse might help:
Philippians 4:8 Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.
Love to you,
