Happy New Years!

Happy Eighth Day of Christmas!

Happy New Year!

Happy January!

Um...not a lot to report from here. I've spent most of last night and a lot of this morning selecting my favorite pictures from 2007 to load into a "Best of 2007" album.

That would 1150 pictures out of who knows how many. Ten thousand? Twenty?

I've never regretted taking a picture; I have regretted not taking a picture.

That kind of thinking leads to a LOT of pictures.

I had forgotten some places that we had visited this year. When you can't even remember everywhere you went, maybe it is time to stay home? (smile...we'll see about that...)

I was so blessed as I reviewed the pictures. It was humbling to see what a great year we had.

As the pictures flicked by in a slideshow, I imagined the judgement seat will be a little like this. Scenes from your life. Unedited unless covered by the blood of Christ. Oh yeah, please delete, crop, whatever some of those shots from my life.

Nature and place pictures are probably a lot prettier, you know what I mean?

It is taking forever for the pictures to load into a sharable web album. I'll post the link later on so you can view them if you have any interest. The web album will *only* allow 1,000 pictures. (Eyes of my reader now crossing...)

Meanwhile, I hope everyone is enjoying the first day of the New Year.
Here's a special version of "Aud Lang Syne" for you to enjoy.

It's scary to think of some of the scenes of my life that will show up on the Big Screen on Judgment Day. Thanks be to God for His wonderful saving Grace!

I'm looking forward to traveling with you in 2008! Happy New Year, Jill and Mr. B!

Love your idea of Christ cropping and editing our pictures of life! May it be so true as I will need quite a bit of red-eye reduction!

Hmm. 1000 pictures at maybe 5 seconds a picture means 83.333 minutes (or one hour and 23 minutes) of picture watching. Not bad if you can narrow a full year down to the length of a short movie!

May this year be a blessed one for you too! It has been a joy gettting to know you better this past year.

What a great idea to put the best of the pictrues in a web album to share with everyone who is interested. Gone are the days where everyone needs to come for a slide show night. That was fun though too.
