Mamiya Camera

Mamiya Camera
This is the assignment Jamie wanted me to do as one of the Assignments from Readers. If this camera could talk I would love to hear some of the stories. Jamie's Grandfather bought this camera in Japan when he was stationed there during the war. We were talking about this camera one day and how it made some of the best pictures. He also told me that if he could find it, he would give it to me. Well after he left us last month to go hang out with God, Jamie's mom found the camera in a box and gave it to us. I will always remember Mr. Sykes' smile and the talk we had about cameras. The camera will have a special place on our bookcase (once I build them) and a special place in our heart.

Happy Birthday Jamie!


Today is my lovely wife's birthday. I'm so very blessed to have her in my life. I'm more in love with her today then the day we said "I will" in the gazebo in the park (yes, the same gazebo in my header photo). We said "I will" and not "I do", I like that, because "I do" is at that moment, "I will" is for the moments after that one as well. Jamie and I continue to grow closer as we travel down the road of life together. Placing God first and keeping Him the center of our marriage is why our love continues to grow.

Happy Birthday baby
I Love you

Large Task

AntHere is another post from the "Assignments from Readers" category. Cheryl said she likes close-ups of everyday things. The other day I was walking across the parking lot and saw this ant dragging a crumb, small to me but a large crumb to the ant. I watched the ant drop the crumb several time while moving it across the parking lot, and I thought, what a determined little fellow.

Then something came to mind: am I like the ant and go for the big things in life, or do I play it safe and only choose things that I know are safe? I decided that I should go for the big thing and go at it with all I'm worth, then if I fail I will probably be better off than if I would be if I went for the safe choice.
