{10 on 10 ~ november}

Last year one of my favorite photographers, Molly Flanagan, participated in a project with 9 other photographers called “10 on 10.” On the 10th of each month, they each blogged 10 photos they had taken throughout the day. I have been intrigued & inspired by their project, and always intended to join in the fun. Just now getting my act together. Of course, I am already breaking the rules ~ posting pics on the 14th and there are more than 10…

A few quotes that express my goal while participating in this project (all originally found in different posts on Molly’s blog):

“Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” ~ Psalm 90:12

In his book, Rescuing Ambition, one way Dave Harvey suggests learning contentment is thanking God “privately and publicly for the daily, easily overlooked blessings in my life.”

“Too often my hope is in my ever-changing circumstances. I say things like, “I really need the baby to take his nap this morning,” which is a fine thing to say and a fine thing to look forward to. But if come lunch time and the nap didn’t happen and I’m so emotionally wasted by it that it ruins my afternoon … then I’ve probably put more faith in that nap than in the never-changing circumstances of the gospel.

God mercifully intercedes in those moments and shows me his ways are above my ways. By God’s grace I can resist the temptation to treat my children as interruptions to my will for my life. Instead, God enables me to treat them as precious gifts he is using to shape me into his image according to his will for my life.” ~ quoted from Gloria Furman

“May God give us eyes to see what matters most in this life.” ~ John Piper

Without further ado, a Saturday at the Garrison house when the Thoendel kids have spent the night…

Would love for you to play along with me. Let me know if you are posting “10” on your blog & I will link back to you so others can enjoy the beauty found in ordinary life as you “number your days.” {I am not sophisticated enough to host a link up party yet. Perhaps in the future.}
