Celebrating Your Life Now, Wagoner, Oklahoma

Celebrating Your Life Now          

Life is important, it’s one of the most wonderful gifts we will ever receive. One of the best ways to capture happy moments and even sad moments in life is through pictures. Pictures tell a story and show the love and joy that present in that moment. I will never forget growing up and I was not one that enjoyed her picture being taken. It was a battle between my dad and I. Then one day he made a statement that brought reality to light when he said “Pictures don’t lie, they capture the truth”. He was right, they capture everything right there in that moment and even show the emotions that we have. But pictures also tell our life story they show from the time we were born how we grew, how we matured into the person we are. They also help us to celebrate those special occasions in our lives, our accomplishments, birthdays, anniversaries, births of our children and the list goes on. Pictures bring to light the moments that have made us happy or remind us of the turning points in our lives. The picture in this article is one of me with my two children. This is not a very good photo of me I’m about fifty pounds overweight and looking fluffy to say the least. But this was the last photo taken of me before God healed me from an illness I had been suffering from for years. This photo is the last photo I have before I began my new journey and life as a woman free from sickness and disease. In this photo, I see hope and joy along with a family who was in extreme need of a miracle. Photos help build not only your joy but also your faith when you can look back at them and see how far you have come and the accomplishments you have made. Take time to get your photos out and remanence on how far you have come and celebrate your life now and who you are. You are special and no matter the mistakes you might have made you are worth celebrating. We have put a program together call Be Remembered it’s FREE to anyone who would like to use it and put their life story together.
