God's Handwriting

I'm going to start a new project on here, but first a story. John and I were fortunate enough to get up at 4am today! Lucky us. Funny I should post about relief after Harvey's third tooth, because it appears that now numbers 4, 5, and 6 are going to give us a run for our money. Harvey cried at 4, so I gave him some teething tablets, tried to rock him (he's waaaay too cool for that baby stuff), and put him back to bed. At 4:30 he was up crying again, so John went and gave him a couple of ounces from a bottle hoping that would help him calm down. That worked until around 5 when he started up again. I tried to be all tough, turning off the monitor and mumbling something about toughing it out. But I'm not that hardcore. So I got up and got some Tylenol and the teething tablets, pulling out all the stops. This time he was curled up in a ball in his bed sobbing----very pitiful. He took all his medicine and let me rock him----that's how bad off he was. After a few minutes of rocking, I put him back to bed and he was out. Just in time for John and I to get our day started. Nice. I can see 3 more teeth trying to come in, but it doesn't look like they're really close at all.

On to my new project. As you know, I'm working on my photography, learning more about shooting, using my camera, editing, etc etc. Well, my friend Jessica who also wants to be a photographer when she grows up, is joining up with http://www.onehundredphotos.blogspot.com/ . You take one hundred photos on a subject and post them on your blog. I love this idea! So I am also joining up with them and I will be posting my one hundred photos on here over the next few months. My theme comes from a quote that I absolutely love: "Never lose an opportuniy of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting" Ralph Waldo Emerson. I love to see something that I find particularly beautiful and know that God created that to captivate my heart, to pursue me, to reveal something about Himself to me. So I want to try to capture "the handwriting of God" in my 100 photos. Should be an interesting journey.

For my first photo, of course I would be driving and have no camera but the one on my phone. I was so completely captivated by the clouds yesterday, I couldn't help but take a quick photo.


I'm sure I could have taken some better photos, but apparently a photo shoot while driving is a tad more dangerous than texting while driving. Especially when merging into traffic. Should be illegal. So there you have it: 1 of 100.

Just wanted to let you know that I stopped by from Toni's blog, from which I found on another blog, and cannot recall how I got there, LOL! But wanted to say that I LOVE your photos of Harvey! His eyes are so captivating, and sooo blue! I look forward to seeing your 100 photos project and will be a follower. The cloud photo was great, even if it is one from your phone. Have fun with your project, I may just do this one too.
