I've borrowed this skirt from my daughter. I've worn it more times than she has. She prefers pants; I prefer skirts :). #borrowed #fmsphotoaday #skirt #daughter

Daily Ritual

Daily I pray before I get out of bed, I pray throughout the day, and I pray when I go to bed at night. I'm so grateful that through Christ, my Heavenly Father has provided a way for me to stay connected to Him and that I can talk with Him anytime, anywhere, about anything.

These two American robins are equal. Today, they kept following each other and occasionally doing something in the air together (mating or fighting?) They were equally amusing to me! In the second picture, I imagine them being equally stubborn :). #robins #equal #amusing #fmsphotoaday

Heart shapes in nature are the coolest :)! My husband showed me the heart shape he found in a cucumber from our garden many years ago. The second picture is a heart shape my son found on a log. The third picture shows a painted plaster heart that I made for my husband a long time ago. It says, "We have us." in Thai. The wooden heart in the fourth picture was part of our Valentine's decoration in the living room. God is Love. I pray that God will continue to mold my heart into a heart after His own heart. #heart #cucumber #log #husband #God #love #fmsphotoaday

Did you know that owls cannot roll or move their eyes? They can only look straight ahead. And did you know that owls are equipped with 3 eyelids to protect their eyes? #eyes #owl #fmsphotoaday

This is my 16 year old son's regular playground where he plays basketball practically every day. Today, I had fun playing "Pig," "Horse," and "Giraffe" with him. He is very good (accurate) at shooting basketball. #playground #basketball #son #fun #fmsphotoaday

Peaceful and Impressive

It's time for another weekly photo hunt, hosted by Sandi at The Saturday PhotoHunt. This week's theme is Impressive. And today's theme for #fmsphotoaday is Peaceful. I'm combining both themes together :).

I love how this huge, old tree (I don't know the name) on our property looks impressive and peaceful to me, especially on this beautify sunny day :). The sunset picture (from archives) is peaceful and impressive, too. #peace #peaceful #tree #sunset #thankful #thankGod #impressive #fmsphotoaday

10 O'Clock

I set my alarm on my phone to wake me up at 10 o'clock. Well, I heard the alarm, turned it off, and slept longer :). This is one of the privileges for being a homeschool mom. #alarm #sleep #fmsphotoaday

A Cup Of...

"Then He (Jesus) took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them (the disciples), saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. This is My blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.'" (Matthew 26:27-28) As we take a cup of wine (or cranberry juice in my case :)), we remember His blood that was poured out on the cross so that we could be completely forgiven. #cup #newcovenant #Jesus #disciples #communion #bloodofChrist #forgiveness #sins #cross #Scripture #cranberryjuice #fmsphotoaday #photography

I want the world to know how very proud my husband and I are of our beautiful and talented daughter who is a sophomore and an AFROTC cadet at OSU. Tonight at Dining Out, she received 3 awards. She also was in charge of the event's audio/visual. Everyone we met there kept saying high praises about her :). #want #daughter #DiningOut #awards #fmsphotoaday
