What appeals to me most about websites like twitter, facebook, etc. is the ease with which you can share a quick thought and photo. So I've decided for a little while at least, one whole month, I'm going to take a picture and be sure to blog a little something about our day, every day. Even when in the moment it seems like something truly ordinary or even mundane, I know I'll look back someday on these days and wish I remembered more, wish I had documented more, wish I had savored more. Even if most of the photos are blurry cell phone shots, maybe this is a way I can do that.

12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:
13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.
16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
