"Photography takes a instant out of time, altering life by holding it still." - Dorothea Lange
Photography is a fun hobby of mine. I love taking pictures, especially of my family. As I look back on photos from the past, so many memories surrounding that moment come flooding back. Sometimes I look at photos and I'm reminded of what used to be. I'm reminded of places we've lived, people we've known, and special occasions that we've celebrated.
This past week while on vacation I took lots of pictures. I wanted to capture as many moments from the week as possible. Moments that we can look back on and remember the family time and funny stories. This was our second beach vacation with the extended family. The first one was 9 years ago. Our family has grown quite a bit during that time. I love looking at the old pictures next to the new.
The grandkids have grown in size and in number. Christian is the oldest grandchild and he will be getting married in November. So in the next couple of years we could be starting a new generation.
I love my family and I am so thankful that we were able to spend some time together at the beach again. As I look at these pictures, I love seeing how the families have grown. We all have our own unique lives with our own challenges that we face each day. But one thing that we all have in common is that we love God and desire to raise our families to serve the Lord. Our family has a legacy of faith and love for the Lord. God has blessed us and has honored my parents' and grandparents' faithfulness to His Word.
