Photo Scavenger Hunt, Vol. II (with Scripture & a Snapshot)

1. Seventies

I don't have any bell bottoms stashed away. Or records. Or disco balls. However, it just so happens I was born in the 70s! And adopted by my parents 4 days later. My husband was born in the 70s as well...on the same day as me just 3 years earlier. So I guess that would mean I was born on the same day as he.

Jeremiah 1:5 - I am so humbled by the fact that even before I was born, God knew all about me and had a plan for me. And what humbles me even more is the fact that I have been truly and completely blessed by His plans; they have far exceeded anything I could have come up with myself!

Of course, Psalm 139:13-16 goes right along with this:
"For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be."

2. Texture

This is Carabella. This is usually what she's doing. Well, this or eating. That is why she is a little, uh, overweight. Like Garfield overweight.

3. Fog

I didn't think I was going to be able to meet the Fog challenge. I'm no meterologist, but I think fog occurs when hot and cold collide. We've had plenty of cold but no heat. But lo and behold, there was some fog--or at least some haze--this morning. I guess the warm 30 degrees we had yesterday afternoon must have interacted with our negative temps of the morning to cause a little fog.

I love this view of the valley. It is about a quarter mile from our house. I would love to own one of the homes that is treated to this view 24/7, but we probably couldn't afford one.

4. Button

Seriously, I hope people don't think I favor my littlest one over my other children since most of my pictures are of her. It's just that she is the only one who does not run from the camera. I have blurry pictures of half of my other children as they escape my focal point. But this one? She will model for an hour for me if I ask her to!

Your photos are so lovely! I especially love the "pop" of the black button on red. Wonderful!

Deb said...

These are wonderful photos! I love the fog photo. It's just beautiful. Just to let you know, I can't see the first photo.

Style Attic said...

Oh , the button shot is stunning :) I totally laughed about the Garfield weight comment!

The Frat Pack + Me said...

I love your "Seventies" version!

{Elena} said...

It's totally awesome how you interpreted 70s!

Ashley Sisk said...

I love the first image - that is just perfect. I also really like what you did with fog.

Life with Kaishon said...

What a great idea for 70's. So beautifully done. I also love your daughter and her pretty button! I laughed about how she is your model! : ) Don't I know it! The older they get, the more they flee from the camera : )
Don't worry. No one will think she is your favorite : )

Hope you have a great week! Love, Becky

Liz said...

love the first shot and how cool is that you guys have the same birthday.!?

Tammy said...

Love the first shot, so neat!

Susan said...

I couldn't see the first photo either. I really like the kitty texture and the button shot. Nicely done.

Anonymous said...

Excellent idea for that scripture... plus, it gave me chills! =)

That kitty is full of texture! heheheee
Great shots, but I really favor the fog image... Beautiful capture! =)

Sally said...

Haha - I laughed when I read about your "favoritism!" I feel the same way. My husband & son do not love to have their picture taken. My daughter is a better sport, so (poor girl) I tend to take advantage of that. =) Love your photos. The red coat... the pink straw. Amazing color! Thanks for stopping by my blog as well. Hope you're having a great weekend. ~Sally

Amy @ Cheeky Cocoa Beans said...

I laughed, too, when I read about "favoring" your youngest. I often think about that, since my 4 year is (1) the most likely to be photographed and (2) the most likely to ask to be photographed (but that is a more recent thing for her). Every single photo I have of my husband, he's making a goofy face on purpose. Oh, except one photo--I took the goofy shot he was giving me and then waited for him to laugh. And then I took that one, too. ;)

I love all of your photos, especially your first! Beautiful!

Seizing My Day said...

Absolutely LOVE the button shot!! and the valley... I would love a daily view like that too... or a beach one... lol! ps. I was born in 70... the last month... my sister was born in the first month of the same year!! ;)

Amy Sullivan said...

The birth certificate is the best. What a great idea.

Runner Mom said...

Your birth certificate picture and the matching Scripture is awesome! I love that verse from Jeremiah! Thanks for sharing!

Coffee Break Mama said...

Oh wow, I just love the idea behind that first photo and the quote - so very creative and beautifully done!

Michelle said...

Your first shot is so creative -- and so... I don't know... so Truth! God does know us before we were even born! How awesome is that! I love that verse!! Thanks for the reminder of how precious we all are and just how much God knows about us!

Very pretty kitty! :)

And it's ok if you do favor your baby on your blog -- as long as it's pretty even in real life! lol!

Brooke said...

What a great view, that fog shot is stunning :D

Jenn said...

I love how serious you are in your self-portrait. :) The red lipestick is great. I also love the picture of your daughter buttoning her coat. PRECIOUS! Great idea with your scripture and snapshot picture. I have my children memorize Ps.139:14 from the time they can talk. God KNOWS us and that is amazing!

Christine said...

Love your photos; so pretty. The Scripture goes well with the birth certificate photo.


julie said...

ALL fantastic shots!! Love the birth certificate - very creative! :)

dclouser said...

These are great! You are so creative and original. Is my brother properly appreciating your talent? I sure hope so! Next I expect to see him as a model in one of your shots...

Anonymous said...

These are great. Love your fog and button.

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...
