18 hours in a car? Not a problem for us! Yeah, I would love to fly and get to my destination quickly, but I’m good with a road trip. There’s more adventure in driving. (Texas to northern Colorado) I don’t have photos of all the beautiful sights along the way, but I have some. God was showing off His beautiful art yesterday… lightning, rainbows, rain, sunshine, deserts, mountains, clouds, storms, trees, rocks, sand…
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. I’ve never actually tried to type that up to check it, but it seems accurate. What if we take that one step further… a picture is worth 1,000 things?
So what do I mean by this? If you own a camera, you can snap a memory of anything you see. With digital photography, there’s no extra cost for taking a lot of photos like in the film days. Isn’t life all about people and relationships? Our society says it’s more about materialism. Wouldn’t it be better to have a photo of your child at Disney World versus having those ridiculous mouse ears laying around? Has anyone actually ever worn those after the plane ride home? Instead of buying souvenirs or mementos, snap a photo if you need something to remind you of that moment in time.
Mouse ears… $19.00
Other souvenirs… $136.00
Cleaning person to pick up all the junk you’ve accumulated… $175 a month
Memories with your loved ones? Priceless.
