What are you carrying?

Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.

-Corrie ten Boom

"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not of more value than they?"
Matthew 6:25-26

Those verses are so meaningful! They are some of my favorite. Very good reminder!
I find it amazing how much we have in common: I take pictures during the day and get on your blog to find that the very same day you posted pictures of what I took the most of that day! -Yesterday I took LOTS of bird pictures. :)

Hello Bethany! It has been forever since I stopped by, but I'm so glad I did! Hope you and your family are all well. How is Josiah? Charissa is getting so big!

I loved all the NY shots on the family blog. Looks like you had fun! (I like home best too!)

With prayers and love in Christ,
