jpg - generations

Welcome to the first edition of JPG!

Christmas came a little early for me this year and I got a new cell phone over the weekend. I'm excited because we switched providers and the one we are on now supports mobile blogging! That means I can send pictures from my phone straight to my blog! Ah, technology... That's where JPG comes in. I intend to post a daily photo that brings me joy. JPG stands for Joy Per God. Holman Bible Dictionary defines joy as
"the fruit of a right relation with God. It is not something people can create by their own efforts." Joy comes from God; it is different than pleasure. Pleasure is something we seek for ourselves.

My hope is to share a picture of something that reminds me of the joy that God has put in my heart. Some days it may be a reminder that God has me right where I am supposed to be. Other days it may be something in nature that glorifies his majesty. And still other days, it may just be for fun. Who knows? Most of the time, it will be just the picture but occasionally I might get long-winded about it (like today). I'm excited to see where this takes me.

This first picture is of my mother-in-law showing my son a sign that is posted by her childhood home. It is a memorial to her grandparents and she was reading it to him and explaining who those people were to him. It touched my heart to see all those generations lining up with one another.

Hopefully, I'll post another picture tomorrow...

Did you get a touch-phone?! Lucky-bum! I did crumble and buy Brian (and myself) a Blackberry for x-mas. How could I pass up 2 for the price of one??

This looks fun!!!
