Good to WOW Week 14 - Faith

Funny, when I first put in the title I accidentally typed “God to WOW” instead of “Good to WOW”.  How appropriate for this week’s theme.  The word “faith” conjures up so many thoughts and emotions, how to narrow it down and how to capture it in picture.  No matter if you are a follower of Christ or not, you practice in hundreds of acts of faith a day.  When you sit you have faith the chair will hold you.  When you drive you have faith that the car will go and stop and turn as directed.  You have faith in objects, people, concepts.  Still, my time to take pictures over the weekend and today were limited so I took one idea and went with it.  The faith of a child.

In this case the faith of a child who loves to say grace and will even do so for one jelly bean which is the going wage for photos of praying children these days, don’tcha know.  Though really Gideon will say prayers at the drop of a hat these days, his faith and the faith of all my kids is inspiring. 

I am excited to go see what others thought about the faith theme this week.  Click the button, I have faith that it will get you there.

Way too adorable -- and how awesome to see! I love it!! God says we need to come to him as a child... I think we really could learn something from these young'uns. :) And if the going price is just a jelly-bean, I'm definitely getting taken advantage of... It's much more around here... :) Maybe a difference in the cost-of-photographing... hehe!
