it’s {embrace} the camera day!

it seemed only fitting to include a photo of L and me this week.

and surprisingly, the first two were taken by sweet K, 
who was actually being really sweet.

i am living out what my faith really means.
especially this week.
and as a sweet friend reminded me,
i am making an intentional choice to do this. 
an intentional choice to
resist fear
and to
resist worry.
and an intentional choice to hope in the Living God.

And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, 
because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 
perseverance, character; and character, hope. 
And hope does not disappoint us, 
because God has poured out his love into our hearts 
by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Romans 5:2-5

    Those pictures are amazing… considering the little lady behind the camera. And even I think the third on a timer. I love that you guys look so happy. And I love that scripture from Romans. It's so true, if we just rest in it. You are growing stronger in your faith and in your relationship with Him through this trial. Many blessings. Oh if only we had more time to actually see each other, I'd have you teach me your timer trick. I don't think it would ever work for me. 😉

    I'm starting to think that L really looks like you. That first picture, especially. Keep choosing not fear. Like it or not, you are a role model for so many of us.
