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.

I found you via Duta's blog. I loved the name of your mom's dog, Don Juan; and I love the origin of your name, Dimple -- it is simply precious! (And I especially love your Lord!) I'll be following!

Red and green always go together well in nature. There's a variey of red and a variety of green and it's all enchanting the eye.

Fall is full of interesting red sights...you've found some nice ones.

Your pictures are very fun! I really love how you have all of them labled with their names. That is unusual to find someone that knows their names! Very fun fall ruby finds!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
