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.
