Whew! Didn't think I was going to make it to today's posting but I wanted to because this is going to be my last posting from Thailand for a little while.
As promised last week, I was going to tell you a little bit more about us today. My family and I are church planter missionaries in Thailand and it's time for our furlough. Home will always be here. We will be in the States to report to our supporting churches and get reconnected with family and friends. It's a five-year cycle - 4 years on the field and one year (or less) at "home." I am going to terribly miss our Student Center kids here - all 50+ of them! I had to hug them goodbye today after church... there were tears, of course! Ugh! If you would like to read up more about us and our ministry, please visit our ministry blog.
I've been busy with packing and getting things together before we fly this week so all of my photos, except for one, are from archives. I started shooting on manual exactly a year ago, so in celebration of that, I wanted to use photos from a year ago on the same week also. Here's my collection this week.

2. From a Flowers Point of View
Our street and the bright morning sun "From a Flower's Point of View." It was sunny, bright, warm, and muggy but oh! so! beautiful blue sky! I was on my knees and camera was almost to the ground shooting up towards the sun, thus the lens flare.
3. Natural Frame

My sweet hubby, my three wonderful boys, living in Thailand - now that's bliss!
Scripture and A Snapshot submission for this week. A shot of my hubby getting ready to release this Thai lantern up into the air. I think this verse is fitting as we are missionaries and spreading the light of God into this "dark" town we serve in.
And... here's my VERY FIRST EVER manual shot a year ago, after several weeks of reading a photography book and understanding aperture and shutter speed. Hahaha! Have a great week, friends. Next week's post will be from the other side of the globe!!! Hopefully, I won't be too jet lagged to take pictures.
