WHAT MY CAMERA CAPTURES

There’s just something about a FLASH MOB!!! They make me smile. This one in particular made me smile because I’m tellin’ ya – those ladies dance better than I ever did! 🙂

It’s been said that people take photos because they want to wage war on death. Well, good luck with that plan! As obvious as this statement is, death happens in spite of our futile efforts to stop it!

You may laugh, but I got a senior discount today. I didn’t ask for it. I’m 53 years old and looked older to the waitress at my favorite restaurant! The minimum age for a senior is 55 years old. **Sigh** I’m not opposed to saving money, it’s the principle of the thing. The sweet little waitress was in an awkward position – was she going to ask me how old I was? Of course not! I wish you could have heard her cute little high-pitched voice. I don’t think she was a day over twelve years old herself!

I admit I did not keep my appointment at the beauty shop this month. I thought I could slide by without getting my grays covered a while longer. My makeup stash is running low, so I’m using the bare minimum until I can get to the store to buy more.

But God has richly blessed me and I have no reason to feel bad about getting a senior discount. After all, some are denied the privilege of getting older, right?

So, sometimes we don’t like what our camera captures, but if we can just keep everything in perspective and inject a little humor, keeping in mind that God is in control and has our lives in His capable hands, it’ll be okay.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine…

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to call my hair stylist to get those grays covered. Oh, and I also need to swing by Sephora for some more mineral makeup. Hey, I said I’d grow older with dignity, grace and faith. I didn’t say anything about throwing in the towel, did I? ❤
