Project Life Tuesday: Week One

I’m so excited to start this new project!  My husband blessed me with this  Cannon Rebel for Christmas!

I’ve always wanted an SLR camera.  So now the fun begins!  I’m scheduled to take a basic digital camera class at the end of the month, I have so much to learn.

One of my wonderful neighbors told me about the Project Life Kit that she received and how she was going to do a photo journal for the year.  After talking with her I decided it was the perfect timing for me too.

I’ll be using ShutterCal  plus this meme to get it going.  I’m looking forward to sharing my pictures and viewing yours as well.  What a neat way to create a photo record of all the events of an entire year!

Thank you Jessica for making this available to us.  Looking forward to getting to know all of you out there.

I’m the mother of five sons, and now an excited proud Grammy of three beautiful little girls and one adorable baby boy!  I finally got my girls, and I’m having the best time of my life surrounded by my wonderful family.

This was taken New Years Day. My older sister Mary and her daughters came out to spend the day with us.  I always enjoy Mary's visit's.

Ok, this may look strange, but on this day I started my 21 day Daniel Fast.  Our church along with many others in the US are doing this fast to begin the year.  We’re believing for break-throughs with our family and the nation in 2010.

Winter came in a big way to Louisiana this past week!  We have been having our fire place going daily! I’m so thankful for a nice warm house.

My daughter-in-love came out to spend the day with us.  The school she teaches at was closed due to the freezing weather.  Yes, in Louisiana it doesn’t take much in the way of cold to shut us down.  What a wonderful excuse to see my grandbabies during the week!

I was using the sports setting on my new camera.  It was fun watching my grand-daughter playing on our trampoline the other day.

Here is my grandson Cole!     Oh isn’t he just adorable?  He reminds me so much of his dad.  It’s seems like yesterday my son was his age.  If you still have young children, please cherish each moment!

My neighbor took this picture for me.  This is Jane, my Russian daughter.  We first met Jane as a young teenager on a missions trip 17 years ago.  We’ve remained very close over  the years.  Jane is in the US now visiting her boyfriend’s family.  We spent 7 wonderful days together.  I miss her already~

Going to be fun seeing all the pics that you're going to take!
Christ went through all this for us, that we might have hope! Praying!
Isaiah 53:7-10: He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Wow! I am so proud of you. You are doing a great job with this, and I think you have now officially "talked" me into doing it. It really is a great idea. (I actually took a pic for yesterday of Karli and her best friend, Buddy!) =)

Enjoy your day!

Love ya!

Fanstasic, Susan! You're really going to enjoy your new camera.

I got my dream camera too... about 5 years ago... a great Nikon SLR film camera. Trying to decide what to do now that everything is digital.

Since I began blogging, my own photography has been on the back burner.

Glad you're going to pursue your photography with gusto!

I will be watching... :~D

(((Hugs)))

Hi Susan! Nice to meet you, too! Thank you for the kind words you left for me. Your grandbabies are precious. I can tell you love being with them! Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures! Have a blessed day!

Hi Susan,

Terrific pictures, you'll love your camera (if you don't already!). I'll be back...if you survived 5 boys I can certainly survive 2!

I'm so happy for you with your new camera. That's my dream, an SLR. So I will admit right now, I'm coveting your new camera. :)Someday, I will get one. In HIS time.

I'll have to check out your another blog. I'm believing we will meet this year. Is that possible?

Thank you so much for your friendship. You are a sweetheart...
Love you

GREAT pics! I am so excited about the Project Life kit!!

Emily said...

Love that shot of little Cole! What a cutie! :)

Well, have fun with this! I'd love to get into photography with a great camera. Unfortunately, I don't have any spare time right now, but soon, I hope. Natural photography is, perhaps, my favorite "art" form. I love seeing the world through the lens of a camera. Truly, what you and other photographers "see" is a rich expression of God's beautiful creation.

Just love it! Look forward to seeing more pictures in the days to come.

Good to hear from you.

peace~elaine
