Be like the sunflower …

“Be like the sunflower that follows every movement of the sun and keep your eyes always turned towards our God.” – St. Julie Billiart

This week the flowers finally bloomed on the Neuse Greenway at Mial Plantation. A good friend of mine rides the trail and was sure to let me know when those were ready for photographers. Chad E and I had a date night with some friends on Wednesday and then made our way down Rock Quarry Road to Battle Bridge to Brownfield until we came upon the field right off the road. I was beyond thrilled to see this many sunflowers in one place! They are my absolute favorite flower in the world. Their brightness makes me smile every time. I always feel like they are looking up to God giving him praise just as we should each day.

Thank you Lord for such beauty in such a dark world sometimes.

Just a few more adventures using Ali Edwards digital stamps

This summer, Ali Edwards, is taking us around the world in 14 days collecting digital stamps to fill our AED Pinterest Passport. Here are a few images that I have been working on this past week using the digital stamps. I’ve been looking through my Instagram feed and pulling the images that are some of my favorites. Please enjoy, like and share my page. Please follow me on Instagram @ourdenstories as well when you get a chance!

You can also follow her board and check back each day to reveal a free digital stamp to download. As an added adventure, she will be gifting one pinner a 6 month subscription to Ali’s Story Kit™.

Here’s to many more memories this summer and forever.

This weekend, for Chad’s Fathers Day, we went to a Carolina Mudcats baseball game and while there I must have snapped a million and one pictures! This one stood out to me specifically for the joy that can be seen in that sweet smile of his!
