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.

Spring Flower Meme Fest
First, for Shadow Shot Sunday and Ruby Tuesday, is this hawthorn tree:
Mellow Yellow Monday, are daffodils and skunk cabbage:
Skunk cabbage smells terrible, but it is the earliest wildflower to bloom here, and is lovely to look at. Most of the plants are done flowering now, but I found this one still blooming last weekend.
For Blue Monday and Macro Monday I have Grape Hyacinth:
Finally, because it is part of My World and is covered in blossoms, a cherry tree complete with bumble bee:
(Look on the right side of this pic to find the bee.)
