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.

Rainbow Trail for Many Memes


Colors on my ceiling


Colors on my wall


Colors on my buffet

Colors over all.



Rainbow footprints

Leading the way

Follow the trail

It's a bright, sunny day!

Drop by Color Carnival, Mellow Yellow Monday, Macro Monday, Blue Monday, Ruby Tuesday, and That's My World to see more great photos from all over! And my apologies to Mary at Work of the Poet, I have red books, but I couldn't pass this up!

One of my daycare kids used to call these rainbows 'miracles'. To this day, that's how I think of them.

My MY is posted. I can't seem to get a Mr Linky for today. Anyone else having this problem?

Annie said...

This is so pretty Dimple. I remember decades ago having lots of crystals hanging in my windows and rainbows everywhere. Somewhere along the line, they all came down except for one or two. No particular reason; life just changes.

eden said...

Wowww.. really pretty!

Nora Johnson said...

What wonderful images! And yes, I completely agree with you about reality shows; that's why I chose the subject for my latest newspaper piece!

Hope you're having a great week too,

How ingenious to use the rainbow for all these color memes.
I so love the rainbow, the sign of God's promise to mankind.
I'd like to think I try to follow the way the Lord wants me to...

Lovely indeed, and what a neat idea!

Ralph said...

The rainbow leaves brilliant colors for us to admire, the ruby red the focal point. The wonderful burst of prism lights are so nice, the look made from the sun in a solar heaven. Wonderful!

Capuring light effects like that is certainly interesting and a decidedly different take on rainbow colors.
