I have a love for capturing memories on film, and then chronicling those pictures in scrapbooks. And it is not just a mediocre liking—this is something I am passionate about. I’ve filled many albums with my pictures and memories, and have many more to go.
When you enjoy every moment, and want to remember every detail, every expression, why would you not take many pictures each occasion, and decorate and journal them to your heart’s content? I never feel as if an event in my life is over until it is in my album. I can’t erase any of the memories from my minds RAM (Random Access Memory) until it is journaled in my albums for me to go back and recall at leisure.
I enjoy life. Every moment is worth capturing on film to remember. The good times—and the bad—captured on film, recorded in an album—these tell the story of a life—these tell the story of God’s love and care—these are memorial stones for my children, my children’s children, and their children. I won’t just have one memorial stone in my pile, but many, so each of my children can have some stones to show their children. God is good. Let’s remember it, in detail.
