"Seeing is of course very much a matter of verbalization. Unless I call my attention to what passes before my eyes, I simply won't see it."
Ann Voskamp, "One Thousand Gifts"
I think this is one of the reasons I love pictures so much...it forces me to pause, call attention to something, and truly see it. And this blog, well, it is my verbalization. The mom of six who said this, Ann Voskamp, is someone whom I have grown to admire and be inspired by; I believe she has it exactly right.
And so with spring in the air, I am seeing more fully. God makes this so easy to do. I invite you to see what my eyes have been graced with lately, and to look and draw attention to those things in your own life that are wanting to be seen... and spoken.
|We were both so excited to finally be able to turn her car seat around!|
|It is so much easier now to SEE.|
|Frolicking in the backyard with Baby.|
|and taking her for a swing.|
|I guess this is how only children compensate...|
|I love this picture: the joy and anticipation in her face...|
|from a simple "special fizzy drink."|
|I guess I can understand why, since the last time she was around sand...|
|at the beach, in September, in a bathing suit...|
|that she would now want to take all her clothes off!|
|Getting the garden ready!|
|More ice cream!|
|Picking flowers (read: weeds)...|
|for my lovely bouquet!|
|Baking cookies with Abby...|
|and marching in the park...|
|during a slight spring rain. (perfect)|
What have you been seeing lately?
