I Walked Here

Steps for Life, 2-mile walkathon, is an annual fund-raising event for PRC (Pregnancy Resource Centers). The boy you see in the picture is my youngest son. This picture was taken in 2012 (I walked here with my family). This year will be his 4th year doing Steps for Life (on May 16th), continuing his sister/my daughter's 12 years of fund-raising for PRC. Our family is a long-time supporter :). Would you please consider giving a donation to PRC to help save the lives of the unborn? Let's do what we can to defend the defenseless! Any amount is greatly appreciated!

Paper

The art of cutting paper silhouettes for use as decorations at the New Year has been practiced in China for many centuries, beginning as early as 1,000 A.D. Before 1900, in Northern China where windows were made of oiled paper, paper cuts called 'window flowers' were glued to these paper windows for decoration. As glass windows became available, paper cuts continued to be used as patterns for embroidery and at festivals. The subjects portrayed in paper cuts reflect the fact that 80% of the Chinese population lives in rural areas in close contact with nature. Birds, animals, insects, and plants are popular subjects. The designs are cut by hand, using either scissors or small, sharp knives. They may be cut free hand or from a preliminary sketch. Several layers of paper are cut simultaneously. Traditionally, four layers were cut. However, it is possible to cut through as many as 60 layers, depending on the delicacy of the design.

Beauty

I'm thinking of inner beauty. To me, gentleness is beautiful. It's hard to capture that in a photo :). "It should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." (1 Peter 3:4) ‪#‎beauty‬ ‪#‎innerbeauty‬ ‪#‎gentleness‬ ‪#‎calmness‬ ‪#‎quietspirit‬ ‪#‎fmsphotoaday‬
