Lost and Found Mission

Our 8 year old daughter, Rebekah, was given a digital camera for Christmas,
and we quickly discovered it came without a memory card.

Big brother Jon remembered he had an old one kicking around his room.

Beka had a thrill when I downloaded her first batch of pictures.

Look what we found!

Little Baby Brookie

Isn't she adorable?

Isn't she a good eater?
I wonder if  rice cereal is a beauty treatment?
Do ya' think it keeps away baby acne?

She still loves her deet-dee.  (pacifier)

And she's still adorable.

It instantly brought us back to the time when she was so small,
she fit doll clothes and when she smelled like a  baby.

I love the smell of baby!

She loved to be held. 
Now, a busy 3 year old, she might let you hold her occasionally,
when she isn't pretending that her Build A Bear Monkey won't stop climbing on her,
when she isn't busy exploring with Dora,
when the "westwant" in her playroom isn't open to serve plastic pizza,
when she isn't coloring another picture for "du fwidge."

We were mostly thrilled that pictures that once were
were now

Don't those words just send spiritual shivers through your body?


Or, did you  skip the shivers and go straight to singing?

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see."

Luke 15 is all about lost and found things.

The shepherd went after one lost sheep, although he had 100.
Luke 15:7 And Jesus said,
"...there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner
 who repents than over ninety-nine just persons
who need no repentance.

 The woman went after one lost coin,  although she had ten.
 v. 10 "... there is joy in the presence of the angels of God
 over one sinner who repents.”

The father longed after one lost son,  although he had two.
v. 32 "for your brother was dead and is alive again,
and was lost and is found."

The Father sent His Son on a lost and found mission.

Luke 19:10
For the Son of Man has come to seek

and to save that which was lost.”

I was found in 1982.

When were you found?


  1. I was either 6 or 7, so 1990 or '91.

    What a fun surprise to find beautiful pictures of little Brooke on that memory card.

  2. It was August 5th 2007! Best day of my life. We just had a message on Sunday on the same scripture! It is always such a great reminder of what our #1 purpose is. And how much we should rejoice when a lost man is saved!

  3. 1976. Thanks, Mindy. Loved the pictures of Brookie, too.

  4. she is adorable!!! looks like a doll
    thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I am a new follower and happy to have met you!

  5. March of 2000, so I turned 11 years old this month. :)

    What a great find on the camera. I recently was looking through some older pictures, and I came across my daughter's baptism video that I thought was lost. Made my day to find it.
