For anyone who didn't see this post, P's diaper bag was taken from the trunk of our car in May and our camera was inside it. Well, shortly after this incident, Jake's brother Andy offered us an extra camera he had. It is an older Canon, but I thought it took nicer pictures than my newer camera did. Unfortunately, my computer won't recognize his camera so I am unable to load pictures from the camera to the computer. After learning this, Jake's mom decided to get herself a new one and gave us her old one. It is basically the same as our old one, but a step above I think. I spent a lot of time trying to learn how to use it and took quite a few pictures in the process. I think I wore it out! The day I first made the Peanut Butter Banana Muffins, the camera decided to start taking pictures that look like this:
I think God was sending me a message to stop trying to capture every moment on film and instead actually live in the moment; to spend more time worshiping Him and loving and enjoying my family. So for the past month or so I've been taking that lesson to heart and remembering that life is not about capturing every moment and blogging about it!
There's one catch. The video camera function on the camera still works. Weird, huh? So, you'll probably be seeing more videos on the blog to make up for the lack of pictures. I guess God is allowing me to slowly wean off my blogging addiction this way. :)
