I think the reason I like photography so much is because it has the ability to capture a moment in time. flipping through old photos instantly transports me back to that moment in time, and all those emotions and thoughts come rushing back.
Yesterday my daughter and I had a quiet afternoon at home. It was freezing cold outside, so we hung out in the living room, with some hot tea and a lap blanket. It wasn’t an exceptional afternoon; not a situation that one would normally document with photographs. But I had my camera out from earlier in the day, so I snapped a few pictures of my lazy dogs laying in the sunbeams.
And when I look back at these pictures I will remember the lazy afternoon. Spending quality time with my daughter. My goofy dogs.
Memories can be tricky things. Some people get so lost in them they can’t move forward. But it’s ok to file them away to enjoy later. Mary, Jesus’ mother did.
But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. – Luke 2:19
Maybe Mary knew what was coming, so she savored the memories of Jesus’ birth and the supernatural happenings that surrounded it.
Paul thanked God for his memories of his brothers and sisters in Christ.
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. – Phillipians 1:3-5
Whether you capture your day with photographs, or just in your mind, make it a point to make some memories worth treasuring.
