'Where hope grows, miracles blossom.' Elna Rae




















I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. 
I've lost almost 300 games. 
Twenty-six times 
I've been trusted 
to take the game-winning shot 
and missed. 
I've failed over and over 
and over again 
in my life. 
And that is why I succeed 
 Michael Jordan

That quote gave me goosebumps...why does God seem to be telling me this same truth over and over, "Just try, and when you fail, consider it success and try again." I guess He'll tell me until I finally believe it. He is good that way. :)

Love the "everyday" feel of these photos. And, the one of Kaish in the pool cracks me up. He is such a special young man!

Have a great day, Becky!

Beautiful, eclectic collection of photos -- so full of life and joy in the everyday moments. I love the little girl's expression in the second photo.

Jade @ Tasting Grace said...

I'm not sure what seems different, but this week you've got a serious collection of some really fantastic captures. Something about the mood here...I feel like you've captured something deeper about everyday life...something verging on socio-political commentary. Anyway, it's really powerful and I respond to it. Lovely!

Lovely captures. I do like that MJ quote...who knew he was so deep?
