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.

Blue Sheep for Ruby Tuesday


Baa, baa blue sheep, have you any wool?
No, Sir, No Sir, I'm much too cool!

This was taken at our county fair last month. I thought the lamb's jacket was neat! It also helps keep the animal neat and clean for judging.
To see more Ruby Tuesday, visit Work of the Poet. The link is in the sidebar.

This is the first time I have seen a lamb's jacket. Thanks for sharing.

I love the jacket.
I was in a store for pets the other day and saw a huge "clothing selection, all for tiny dogs.

I was disappointed--nothing for Luckie. But then she might destroy it. She has to wear a harness as a collar & leash combo slips right off. The kennels left the harness on her one boarding stint. She chewed the thing up.

That's what I'd like to do with certain clothing items myself.

That's such a cool jacket. I never knew that the sheep wore coats. Interesting find for RT.

Very meta - it's like a jacket (to be) wearing a jacket!

Well that's certainly a unique lamb's coat! Looks quite cozy in it! Of course I did notice the red feeder box for that touch of red for Ruby Tuesday. Great photo of an interesting subject. Oh and I hope he won! :)
