You have seen this adorable child around here before :). The other day I dressed her up in some of her adorable outfits and took some special pictures for her 2nd birthday. Happy birthday, Allison!

I realize I have been like a turtle, only peeking out of my shell to blog every now and then. That is due partly to writer’s block and partly due to business. I was looking back in my journal a little while ago and came across a time a few years ago when I was writing about my schedule (yes, I have written about some pretty random things). I used to wake up at 7:00 in the morning and be done with school by lunch. Oh, those were the days…

Anyway, I don’t have any promises of my schedule slowing down or writer’s block going away but hopefully that will come true. Hopefully… :)

Have a great weekend!

Created to be a Moon

IMG_5519CROPPED
Like the moon is a reflection of the sun, we are called to be a reflection of the Son.

One day I would love to have my own photography business. I would love to travel the world and take pictures, have them posted in magazines, and have the honor of photographing weddings, engagements, and portraits.

But even if my goal was to have the biggest and best photography business it would be too small of a goal. Why? If that was my only goal in life, and even if I accomplished that goal, I would die having lived a useless life.

So what should my goal be?

“Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for My glory, whom I formed and made.”Isaiah 43:7 (emphasis added)

We are created to bring glory to God. Like the moon that reflects the sun, we are created to reflect God’s glory. That should be our main goal in life. All other goals in life should be prayerfully made to meet the main goal.

It may feel sometimes like our gifts and talents are worthless, but God has given them to us for a reason. We must only pray that He will reveal to us how to use them to reflect Christ.

Like the moon is a reflection of the sun, we are called to be a reflection of the Son.
