40 days of photos {lent version}

hi stranger. it’s been a while. life got crazy with all three of us getting infections of various sorts and all of us on at least (if not more) one round of antibiotics. then since it’d been a while, i kept putting off getting back on the blog even more. i’m trying to give myself grace y’all. ha. anyway, today’s the first day of lent. the first day of a 40 day period that the Christian church recognizes as a time to prepare our hearts for the cross. for easter.

some people give up stuff to prepare their hearts and minds. to “fast” if you will. and i’ve done that. sometimes i still do it. but i actually like to think of something “to do” to make myself more aware of these moments rather than to fast.

for those of you who’ve been around for a while, you know that one of the things i’ve done in the past is take a picture a day during lent– to open my eyes notice the gifts God has given me during this season of preparing. 40 days of taking at least one photo a day.

and y’all. i’m doing it again. this year i doubt i’ll actually be able to do a post on this blog every day, but i’ll be getting my camera out every day {hopefully!} and i’ll try to post every couple of days.

the goal: to get my camera out and notice God’s giftsevery.single.day.

to get my camera out and through this daily discipline, focus my mind and heart and the things, the gifts, of Him.

this is a discipline you guys. it’s hard in this season of life to have any sort of consistency. that’s why i’m up for this challenge. i need it and i crave it. i crave the moment to be creative with a camera and i crave the moment to just breathe and notice God’s handiwork.

anyone want to join me? day 1 lent photos  {day 1: we’ve been struggling for a month and a half to get this girl to drink milk. the past three days she has finally been drinking it! she carries around her sippy cup and gets chocolate(yes we caved and even tried chocolate milk) all the way down the front of her shirt…but i don’t care because she’s drinking it and i’m thankful for her.}
