Moments + Prayers

This morning I came across a couple of quotes by Henri Cartier-Bresson-a French photographer-this morning that expressed things I found to be true.

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.

There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture.  Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera.  That is the moment the photographer is creative.  Oop!  The Moment!  Once you miss it, it is gone forever.

We are soaking up moments and "the last of the sunshine," as a friend remarked yesterday. 

I can't say thank you enough to all of you who have been praying for us in our move and transition, especially the prayers you have made for our children.  Our heavenly Father who knows what we need before we ask has been graciously answering those prayers, and the kids have been remarkable.  The only children and parenting struggles are the same ones as before, so all is normal. :)


  1. So glad all is going well! Keep your post coming! Praying for y'all! Love ya

  2. Praising the Lord for His grace & your "remarkable" children! Oh, He is SO good. The quotes were beautiful . . . but not as beautiful as those children. They look so happy. Which makes me happy amidst my sad.
