Recently after several years of struggle, I finally decided to change the name of my blog.
I realized when I started trying to explain this that it would be much easier on you and me if I just made a simple explanation.
So here it is--I changed my mind--nevermind what all went in to that decision.
But maybe a little explanation is in order for the reason I chose "The Pages of My Life."
One of the most obvious reasons is that a blog is really a journal or a web log. We get the name "blog" from the last four letters of that term. And I wanted to keep a journal -- of sorts.
But the real reason is in the picture below. His pages are the pages of my life.
In fact they are pages of life period--whether I accept them or not.
There is no true life apart from them.
So it is my privilege and joy to acknowledge God's Word through the name of my blog.
For those of you who are interested, I've included a couple of pictures in the sidebar under Pages, Counting my Blessings--some of our precious guys (Renewal Ranch)and the sister of one who just graduated--oh, and me too!
I lost everything--all the pictures I have taken for the last few years, everything I had designed for Renewal Ranch--you name it--I lost it--except the pictures I had posted to this blog and the ones to my Facebook account.
If you do not have your pictures backed up, back them up NOW--
We have an external hard drive on our desk computer but do not have one on my laptop.
Anyway, I have been having photography sessions every day trying to replace some of my IPhoto library.
Today I dropped my camera and broke my favorite lens. Believe it or not, I think the camera itself is in tact but my lens. Boo hoo.
And on top of that, I cannot find any of my other lenses. Don't have a clue what I have done with them. Think I may have loaned them to a college-aged granddaughter. Am checking on that!
So it is back to the IPhone and IPad for pictures. I will have to figure out a way to make them interesting and pretty. What a challenge I have ahead of me!
Still grateful as I turn,
