Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

Summer Stock Sunday--Sun Tea


Sun tea is a summer staple for my husband. He carries a half-gallon jug of it to work every day so he can stay hydrated no matter whether he is in the shop or on the road.

He sounds like a sensible person. And it makes for a lovely photo.

What kind of herb is that - is it hibiscus?

Never heard of sun tea before, just what is put in the water to colour and flavour it, I assume it is just left in the sun to brew. Must be nice, I wonder if our sun is hot enough to brew it successfully.

Hi Dimple. My husband also loves sun tea, and makes his own, to his own taste, with a hint of mint. And he drinks it all too! (I do like tea, but not iced tea so much.)
