Blast from the past..... like circa 1900
And this is why I love scrapbooking. Even if very few people look at my completed albums now, someday way off in the distant future, maybe a great great grandchild will be thankful that I not only put the pictures on the pages, but I also wrote about them.
For tonight, I am looking very closely at this picture. And I am imagining these very important people. And I am missing them. It is different than the missing I talked about yesterday. But none the less, it is missing them. Tonight I am also thinking about my soon to be born new little granddaughter. I can't wait to hold and cuddle her and also share her picture on this blog!
Isn't it wonderful that God's plan includes this wonderful answer to this sense of loss and missing we feel for our grandparents and great grandparents by providing our OWN children and grandchildren? What a blessing that is!
Jesus, thank you for this picture, for all that you are showing me. Holy Spirit it is amazing how you bring different pictures into my mind. Help us all to see and embrace the generations in our family. Thank you for pictures, preservation, scanning and scrapbooking! Amen
