What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Foto Friday~ books

One of my favorite days of the week~ it is time to share your favorite photo of the week!

It could be any photo of any subject that you would like, but each week I offer an optional challenge for those who are in need of some inspiration.

Last week, the challenge was BOOKS.

Miraculously, I had time to try the challenge (this morning, cough cough.) Since BOOKS was a challenge from last year (wow! FotoFriday is hanging on!), I wanted to be sure to come up with something new for it.

Here are my contributions:

~rainbow books~

I discovered Picnik had free space textures thanks to the final space shuttle flight; they worked PERFECTLY for this photo and the message I was trying to create through it. I have always wanted to try using textures, but since I don't have photoshop~ this is the first time I have. Very cool.

And in case you want a gander at my current reads, here they are:

Now, it is YOUR turn!

Remember to link up to your direct blog post and not your site domain! Looking forward to seeing everyone's contributions!

And last weeks' winners were:

Winner #1: Christine @ Day to Day for a Normal Girl and Friends

If I remember correctly, Christine just got herself a new camera! She doesn't take long in learning how it works! This photo is breathtaking! I love the golden light, the backlight, even the sunspot. And those children? I want them for my own.

Winner #2: Cafe Mirecki

Who knew breakfast could be so PRETTY!?!? What a great shot!

See you next week~ same time, same place!

If you are in need of some inspiration~ the challenge is...... HIGH ANGLE.

REALLY looking forward to this one! :-)

I love the second one!

I love the first two! With the age of the Kindle, it is wonderful to see BOOKS!

I have many of those home remedy books too. I always like to try a natural cure before I try anything else.

Also, I love that photo of those two kids, mainly because they're my niece and nephew. :)

(My nephew Andrew does look perfect in that cowboy hat. I think he was meant to be born on a ranch or a farm somewhere, him and his four brothers.)

P.S. I have a long ways to go on my camera:)

I love the pathway of books. I rushed this week's challenge, so it's not that great...

Terri said...

I love that second one. So clever!

Full of Grace said...

I also love the second one..It is beautiful, it is perfect.. :)

Rebecca said...

Leah~ I should have known...they look like they could be YOUR children. Of course, they must be family. So what's up with your family stealing all the cute genes?!? Hmmmmm.....?????

Share the wealth already!

Barb said...

What a neat idea for the pathway of books. Great picture idea. You are just so clever:)

Leah said...

Rebecca - Hah! I'd say you're pretty wealthy yourself (genetically speaking :). Your children are absolutely beautiful. (Not a shocker though, considering their parents :P )
