Tips and Tricks:
You know how you take some pictures with your digital camera and sometimes you want to enhance them a bit, but finding the best and nicest looking actions for Photoshop can sometimes be a little difficult. Where here is a link with a few that you can download and start enhancing your photos.

My favorite blog post this week:
I did no blog reading last week, you all know that our family had some tough days and I honestly didn't have the inkling to go online and blog hop.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
^^^^^^^ Read post above

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):


Lesson learned the past few days:

Align CenterTo let go and let God. It's so tough when you're faced with a situation where you feel completely helpless and need some comfort, but I've learned over the years to really stop trying to do things on my own and to put all my problems and my fears and worries in the Lord, ESPECIALLY during those tough times. He always comes through.

On my mind:
My kids at school, hoping they have a great first day and hoping they have a wonderful school year.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
Amos 5:24
