Organize Your Photos: Photos of Belongings

    …a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away.

Ecclesiastes 3:6

 

As we near the end of the Organizing Your Photos series, it’s time we talk about one of the best things about photos:

Photos can replace bulkier stuff.

Do you have souvenirs from vacations that you’re ready to let go? Take pictures and put them in a vacation album.

Do you have 20 t-shirts from high school that you can’t throw away? Take pictures—or get pictures of you in them—and make a little high school album. (Or, yes, you can make a quilt.)

Do you have several tubs full of your kids’ school projects, papers, and Mother’s Day art? Take pictures, or shrink the art on a copier, and make an album for each child.

Do you have boxes and boxes of belongings that use to belong to a beloved relative?  Take pictures of the items that have deep meaning for you or for them, then place the pictures in an album and write a few sentences about each picture.  Then bless others with those things by giving them away.

Proverbs 10:7

 

Welcome back to the Organizing Your Photos series, the Halloween edition!

So, Halloween is not my favorite holiday (as I wrote in this post about making Halloween about Jesus). I know that Christians have varied stances on Halloween, and I’m not trying to glamorize it. But I do believe the righteous can find joy, fun, and blessing in Halloween without stepping into wickedness.

And I do love seeing my kids all dressed up! I always take pictures. Since this is a holiday when I’m pretty much guaranteed to have at least one picture, Halloween makes for a perfect As-They-Grow album.

 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

Matthew 28:6
