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.

Machine & Muffs



We own a smallish tract of forest, and sometimes cut logs to sell. This is a shot of the earmuffs my husband wears to protect his hearing when running this very loud piece of equipment.
I hope everyone has a Mellow Yellow Monday and a restful Ruby Tuesday!

Interesting shot of your hubby's ear protection. That's neat that your photo works for both memes.

The red is designed to attract your attention right now. It is best to protect your ears when using loud yard equipment. Thus protected, the sounds of nature you can still hear completely...

Rose said...

Very clever to do two memes with one post....its a good shot!

Thank you for visiting my blog, Time Stand Still.

Love the muffs. I wear earmuffs for warmth a major part of the year as wind causes earaches.

I've never heard them called earmuffs before, I was expecting something a lot fluffier LOL.

Remind me of the ear muffs for the Formula One race we had just last weekend. The noise of the fast speed car is so deafening.

Very interesting background. The red muffs are very cool. Looks like somebody likes to play with power tools?
