Why Taking Photos Can Help Your Memory!
A Photo can tell a story...
I had one of these cameras with a strap, she was a Brownie Junior
It is a very special treat to take out an old shoe box filled with photos and
Have your mind just overflowing with memories!
~This is a real good idea to do as a family or with your grandchildren~
We have all heard the saying every picture tells a story...
Our minds can be stimulated by just reminiscing of the past.
We can use old photos to help our memories...
There is real life and a legacy in those photos.
We have such a drawing to old photos;
The black and white ones just speak of times that said look at me!
Without all the bells and whistles to cause a distraction of what we were really seeing.
The black and white photos just show us of an era long gone.
We can see our lives take shape from seeing our baby pictures;
How we have grown and who we were with;
Our parents and grandparents and our siblings!
Even seeing our family pets and furniture brings back a flood of memories!
Birthdays and Holidays
Events that were part of our timeline of days and years...
When we can see photos of our childhood or vacations;
Can stimulate our minds to think and process;
There may be even memories we need to overcome any pain or sorrow attached to it.
We can take these to the Lord and ask for forgiveness for ourselves or
To forgive someone else...
Sometimes we can have some bad memories and that is all we might have;
But when we see old photos of those times that might give a glimpse that all was well,
I have looked at the faces and have said they were so young and they look so happy!
We now live in such a digital world;
We take a lot of pictures,
But we fail to actually have them printed out anymore.
(But of course, if you are a scrapper)
You have books filled with photos from every event;
Past, present and future.
What are some of the feelings you have when looking at the old photos of yesteryear?
Are you getting those photos you're taking printed out?
Well, I encourage you to do that...
Smile your on Candid Camera!
