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.

Hejsa.
Blot lige inde for at ønske dig en god week-end.

Sender dig også lige disse kloge ord....

AT FLYTTE FOKUS

Herre, når jeg er bedrøvet,
så send én, jeg kan trøste.

Når mit kors bliver for tungt,
så lad mig dele en andens kors!

Når jeg har for travlt, så giv mig én,
jeg et øjeblik kan hjælpe!

Når jeg bliver ydmyget,
så lad mig have én, jeg kan rose!

Når jeg er modløs,
så send mig én, jeg kan opmuntre!

Når jeg behøver andres forståelse,
så send mig én, der behøver min!

Når jeg har brug for andres omsorg,
så send mig én, jeg kan tage mig af!

Når jeg kun tænker på mig selv,
så lad min tanker gå til en anden.

”Mother Theresa"
