Black and White
This was one of the first photo shoots that we set up with our new camera 2 years ago. When we got the results onto the computer it was worth the $1200 that the camera cost to me. I love these photos of me and my last baby:)
I'm sorry my blog friends that I have been neglectful of this part of my life. When I'm feeling inadequate, I stop posting on my blog too because I don't think I have anything interesting to share.
So here's the lowdown:
*grammy came and helped get ready for the pet party (yeah yeah)
*visit with grammy was wonderful
*pet party came and went with a sparkling clean house
*i was determined to keep the house sparkling
*we started a financial peace class
*jaden got pneumonia
*everyone else got the flu
*1/2 of western washington got the flu
*but not mommy
*i started working on 10 brand new pages for a big contest entry
*the house went downhill quickly
*jon has a birthday and we have a real date
*the financial peace thing is going well
*jon and i are communicating very well
*i'm still working on my entry
*the house is still sliding downhill because i'm still working on my 10 layouts
*people are going comando b/c the laundry hasn't been done in two weeks
*my entry is done
*my entry is overnighted to Utah
*i start focusing on the house as much as I can but its overwhelming

So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good.
The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin.
I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it.
Instead, I do what I hate.
But if I know that what I am doing is wrong,
this shows that I agree that the law is good.
So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.
And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.
I want to do what is right, but I can’t.
I want to do what is good, but I don’t.
I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.
But if I do what I don’t want to do,
I am not really the one doing wrong;
it is sin living in me that does it.
