Faithbooking Hobbies

My parents enjoy the summer so much, as they can be outside walking, gardening, mowing the grass, and bird watching.

I used Close To My Heart's Boom Di Ada papers and embellishments to highlight Dad and Mom's hobbies. Mom is planting herbs in a hanging basket, while Dad is finding friends to talk with on his 2-meter radio. While we sat on their patio, a hummingbird came to have his dinner. Their big backyard is so peaceful and conducive to meditation! And I so enjoy being with my dear parents in real life visits and in phone visits.

I thank God for my parents' hobbies that give them joy. I journaled about them on the named-pullout paper sections that hide under their photos.

Thanks to my faithbooking friend, Hope, for helping me to focus on Scripture verses for these pages!

"This is the day the LORD has made ..." are the first words my parents say when they wake up in the morning. And in whatever they do, they always speak words of wisdom as they glorify God and keep Him in their days and nights. These verses truly help describe my parents and their hobbies.

Double click on the photos to enlarge them.

Enjoy the day that the LORD has given to you!
