52 Photos I Am...


52 week badge
This week is a tough assignment.  Sally asks who we are and what makes us a wonderful person.  I can think of many things to describe myself, but to show that in a photo - not so easy.  Here goes anyway.

I am caring.

This photo was taken this week at Dogwood Canyon, a beautiful nature reserve in southern Missouri. 
There were dozens of waterfalls, trees, trout, and lovely bridges.

I love to travel thanks to my mom and dad who scrimped and saved every year to take us on a summer vacation.  Even now our own little family loves to travel. I especially like nature and care about the future of our planet for the generations to come.


This photo was taken last week at our Bible School at our church.

I spend much of my free time as Sunday School Superindendant at our church and have done so for more than 20 years.   I truly care about our children's religious education and I  feel it is important for all our children to learn about God, and how to be good stewards of our church, the world, and every living thing.  I know religion can be one of those discussions that is taboo, but I really belive the world would be a better place if every child grew up learning all the wonderful stories of the bible.

Thank you for stopping by! Please check out Sally's blog to see more.

Thanks for a wonderful post Alice. I too sometimes am reluctant to post about God. But since he has been so good to me this past year I can't help but not talk about him. I agree we need the bible, the pledge, and such back in the schools. Even in the best "religious" schools it is hard! Keep up the good work and I love the waterfall, looks so cool and inviting!

What a fabulous way to see yourself. I love that and I love the photos you shared with us of your sense of caring. And wow. . .20 years of managing the Sunday School program. That's devotion and a sense of dedication that I totally get!

Beautiful shot of the waterfall. Traveling is an excellent way to spend time together and learn as a family. I wish I had done more with mine.

That waterfall is beautiful. How great of you to be in a leader ship role at your church. You are sharing who you are so no worries about taboo. I am enjoying getting to know what everyone is all about in this group.
