Remembering LM Montgomery

I borrowed this from a PEI Blogger. It is called Heritage Prayer, and I agree with it 100 per cent.

Heritage Prayer

We keep forgetting all of those who lived before us.
We keep forgetting those who lived and worked in our communities.
We keep forgetting those who prayed and sang hymns in our churches before we were born.
We keep forgetting what our fathers have done for us.
We commit the sin, Lord, of assuming that everything begins with us.

We drink from wells we did not find.
We eat food from farmland we did not develop.
We enjoy freedoms which we have not earned.
We worship in churches which we did not build.
We live in communities we did not establish.
This day, make us grateful for our heritage.

adapted from a prayer in the old Covenanters' Church - 1804, Grand Pre, Nova Scotia.

Photographing the Anne Doll

I've had so much trouble getting the right backdrop and light for portraits of my Anne doll.  Today it came to me to take her to school as that is where she was happiest.  So, I took her to the old New Bern Academy (1809) --which is located about a block from where I live.  People were staring at me as I was laying in the grass under an oak tree and holding my camera steady.  One lady couldn't see the doll and she got so curious that I had to tell her that I was taking a picture of my doll.  She thought it must be a squirrel.  I'm sure I looked pretty strange.
