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.

Sunny Raindrops

Last time you saw raindrops on water, this time it's raindrops in the sun. Both these pics were taken from our boat, on Lake Koocanusa in Montana.
See more of Watery Wednesday here.

It's a JOY to see raindrops of ANY kind here in Southern California! Thanks for sharing ;--)
I'm sharing watery outdoor photos from my sister's visit to Ketchikan at Small Reflections this week.
Hugs and blessings,

I have been enjoying all the rain we have been getting here in the NW of MT. I might have to take a drive up to the lake, thanks for the inspiration.

I love the smell of rain... but I don't like it when it rains and we're on a road trip.

My first Watery Wednesday entry is up.

I really like it when it's sunny and raining. Most of the time I'm able to catch site of a couple of rainbows during this phenomenon.
To answer your question: Yes, I wrote that and the other poem.
Peace to you.

Fun shots - this is usually the kind of rain I find most annoying when working outdoors...thinking that it oughtn't rain when the sun is shining.
