Alphabitty Moments - I is for....


So around this blog, Thursday is beginning to mean it's time for another Alphabitty Moment, created and hosted by Mama Bear over at 4 the Love of Family. It's time to get a mooove on and preserve some of life's sweet, bitty moments.

Without further a do.

I is for.....

IN motion.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I KNOW that it's 2 words. But right now this best describes our children and our family.

For, not only are we in (constant) motion, it seems, physically, keeping busy with church, school, sports, chasing after our active kids, but hopefully you will find us "in motion" in our spiritual lives as well. Because no matter our ages or number of years as a follower of Christ, we should always be in motion, running toward our Father, eyes focused on Him, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. Constantly straining towards knowing Him more, becoming more eager with each passing day as we grow in our relationship with Him.

So, yes, it's two words with one not even starting with "I". And, yes, it has a double meaning to me. And yes, I could have used words like imagination, irresistible, icky:) (which would have been a problem for me, because I probably have hundreds of pictures that fit the bill for those...and which one(s) would I have chosen?)

Instead, I chose a word (OK. Words!) that I know will not just be for the here and now, but will be applicable in this entire treck through life.

Of course, next week you'll most likely find me back to less in depth words like jump or jolly or joker, but tonight I guess you could say I was feeling a little more Introspective.....

Thanks for the update on Stellan.

Don't worry, I think your 2 words are perfect!

And the picture with the flowering trees is beautiful!

Wow! I love that picture of your daughter by the trees! And I love your I word (words) May we all remain "In motion" running towards our Lord.

Seriously, I'm not telling you what to do, but if you haven't already, frame the picture of your daughter walking beneath the white blossoms. Beautiful!

Good words today!

I'm with snoodlings. That picture's a keeper. And thanks for the reminder to be in motion and intentionally moving towards the Father (there's another "I" word for you).

Gorgeous pic of your daughter under the cherry bossoms! I LOVE spring!

Jenny said...

You are in-motion! (See that? Using a - makes it 1 word! Neat, huh?)

I think your J word should be Jenny. It's such a lovely word...

I love these "alphabitty" themes! You are so creative! And the pic of Emma in the trees - NEEDS to be in a frame! You have a knack for taking pretty pics my dear sis (okay okay ... cousin, but I prefer sis ;) ).

My smile kept getting bigger and bigger the further into your post I got. I love your story telling style and the unique perspective of your pictures. Taking a picture from above the stroller? Brilliant since that's exactly the view us mom's have. Love it!!!
