Treasure Tuesday

It's been quiet around the blogoshpere lately, at least in these parts. Summer has finally caught up with us, and we've been busy enjoying the great outdoors. I've also been playing around with my template, looking for just the right picture to put in my header, and experimenting with the digital imaging software that came with my new computer. It's not as versatile as Photoshop, but it will do a few tricks. I'm quite the novice, but I'm learning.

The photo you see in my header is one I've been practicing on. It's not exactly finished, but it's not too bad for a beginner. That's what I'm telling myself anyway. I'm thinking that I'll post the original photo when I get home from work so you can see what I've done with it. Maybe.

All that said, and I still haven't told you about my treasure. I found an old roll of film in the garage when I was searching for my digital camera, and just had it developed over the weekend. That's where I found the picture up there in my header. It was taken about 3 years ago. I had forgotten that we ever managed to get a picture of all the kids together, and while I'm so happy to have found it, the photo itself isn't my treasure. But I bet you can guess what is.

See those faces in the photo? Left to right, there's Emily, Sarah, Lindsey, and Andrew. Yes, they are my treasures, but they also belong to Jesus, and He treasures them most of all. Oh, the puppy in the photo is Lickerish, aka Poopsie (she earned the nickname during housebreaking) our German shepherd mix who is a heck of a lot bigger now but still thinks she's a lap dog. Unlike Leslie's dog, Austrey, she doesn't know Jesus, but we're working on her.

If you'd like to participate in Treasure Tuesday, or if you'd just like to see more treasures, hurry on over to Faith's place.

I suspected this was a personal photo. I know who Sarah and Lindsey are but who are Emily and Andrew? This is so sweet we may see a sudden rush of people out here finding their favorite photo and putting it in their header. And I'm on my way over to Faith's place right now to find out about this Tuesday Treasure. Sounds a lot more fun than Techie Tuesday which no one's gonna be seeing today! :-)

Emily and Andrew are my husband's children. Their mother is my ex-wife-in-law.

I think you've done a fine job alterning your photo for the header! I'm learning more about Photoshop myself.

That's so neat that you found a roll of film and had it developed 3 years later. :)

I've posted a TT as well. Stop by and take a peek. :)

Ex-wife-in-law -- too funny! I love your treasure. Being a child of God is indeed the most wonderful treasure.

Barb said...

The relationship you have with your ex-wife-in-law is one of the best things I've ever heard. How fortunate for these sweet kids.

That is so sweet. In my recent time alone, I was trying to get some scrapbooking done, and was working with some pictures of my girls from Christmas '03. They were so little! Talk about a good way to get a mommy missing her girls who have gone off camping with their daddy!

I bet that was extra amazing to find the old rol of film, sitll undeveloped! That is a treasure!
Blessings,

Great picture, but my fav. part was that THEY are the treasure. Sweet. My husband is putting our child's movies on DVD. So we are enjoying watching them again.

Beck said...

Beautiful kids. A very excellent treasure.

You did do a good job period on that photo. I would LOVE a photoshop program or a new computer to do cool and funky stuff with!

It was not by chance or accident that you found the old roll of film. Isn't it great, the bigger picture God has for us. Judith
