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.

This feels like the sun, the bold yellow just perfect to us in New England that has had day upon day of rain this week. This bloom means that truly, spring had indeed sprung!

Oh, yes! Spring is grand!

Some places out in the Black Hills got a foot of snow after I left....gee....sorry I missed that!

Here in eastern SD, the lilacs are about done, the trees are all leaved out and the grass needs mowing!

And we are getting rain, rain, rain!!!

Lovely, lovely photo....I just adore pansies!
