21/365 Thankful Thursdays!

                                                                   21/365, originally uploaded by 1randomgirl.

I borrowed this idea and tried to re-create my own version.  
(I really need to work on learning the settings on Nikky)
The beam from a flashlight creates a glow of a heart. The book is a hymnal and opened to the hymn...
"Something Beautiful"
Something beautiful,
Something good,
All my confusion,
He understood,
All I have to offer him,
Was brokeness and strife,
But He made something
beautiful of my life.
I am thankful for many things...but this week I am especially thankful for...
I am thankful that Michael has his license and can drive himself 
and his sisters to school and back, 
to basketball practices and home from away games!
It has made a whole world of difference in my day!
I am thankful that all three kids received excellent report card grades!
I am thankful that my friend Christine sold some of her Etsy items! Yay Christine!
(there's still time to enter the giveaway of Christine's handmade sandwich/snack bag set! So go back to post and enter!)
I am mostly thankful for, just like in the lyrics...
in my brokeness and strife...
He made something beautiful of my life.
What are you thankful for today?

What a great idea! Love the sheet music and the heart, will have to experiment with a flashlight sometime!

The image looks like it has noise so maybe try a lower ISO if it doesn't lower the shutter speed too much?

That is beautiful. I would frame that and hang it on my wall!

Christine said...

You are beautiful and the picture too. Thanks for being a great friend.

PS..Hope Maddie is feeling better. Delani was concerned for her yesterday. She said Maddie was not feeling well at all.
