My hero...Anne with an "e"

"I discovered it's not what the world holds for you, it's what you bring to it."
That's a quote from my all time favorite movies the Anne of Green Gables series! I pretty much scream the whole time because of how much I love it! lol!
I think I see myself in her so much...and I love how much joy she brings into people's lives! No one can hate her! And she is fearless which I know is something that I'm working on becoming more and more...Also, she dreams endlessly and no matter what dream killers come into her life she never let's them get her down!

If you haven't ever seen these movies or haven't seen them in awhile...WATCH THEM!! They will change your life;) hehe! I also read all the books years ago and they are probably the best fiction books anywhere! Check them out!
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys soooo much!!

My sister and I grew up on these movies, and she used a quote from one of the books in her wedding toast at my wedding! Amen to Anne with an "e" being a hero!!! :)

Hey Natalie!

My name is Emma Jean. I'm friends with your cousins!! They used to babysit me when I was little. :)

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi, because I think we're around the same age (17), and you just seem really sweet from all of Sarah's pics!

All that to say, if I ever get a chance to meet Sarah, I would love to meet you too! :)

Hi, Sarah,
I love the Anne series! I am a redhead w/freckles and the works, and I used to wear my hair in braids. People would stop me at the mall, grocery store, hairdresser, and say - "You look just like that Anne girl! Did you know that?". :) I loved it!

So, all that to say, Sarah Barlow, you are one of the most amazing photographers EVER, and I love your work! Thank you for being so on fire for Christ that you push others to do so through your blog and life.

God bless,
Jean Marie (FL)

You are so Anne!! I love, love, love this movie and it's funny you mentioned it because I was just thinking it's been too long since I've watched them.

I adoreee Anne of Green Gables. I have the first four VHS from way back in the early 90s...(hah!) I think I've seen the two VHS' that come after the original four, and I hear that there is even a 7th and 8th? We'll have to watch a few of her movies this summer, Sarah.

Well I guess I'm the only guy on here and I was hoping that I wouldn't have to say this but "I love everything chick related!!!" That includes but isn't limited to "Carrots".

Thanks for thinkin' of me when it comes to watching movies.... it's always a blast. Thanks for the wellwishings on my birthday too.

Can't wait for the Continuing Story night!!!

I just loaned these movies to my parents last night. They said that their movie rental place doesn't rent them out anymore because they are "too old"

WHATEVER! They are the best! I love the simple, innocent childhood days portrayed there. I admire Anne's imagination and wonder and her stubborn pursuit of not only teaching but taking care of those she loves!

I also leaned how my own ideas of what romance was and what my future would be can get in the way of the picture and story God is paining in my life. Like Anne, it could have been too late if I was not willing to let go of some of my ideas and embrace God's ideas for me.
Some dreams are from Him and were given to be pursued - others that we have are tin trinkets precious to us that we can surrender to Him and that He in turn can turn into GOLD!
