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.

Altough I don't exactly know who Leontien is, the yellow flower and the small pink card dedicated to her, are both charming.
I suppose it's all for a good cause.

Hi, Louise...

I had no idea who Leontien was, so I did a little research before leaving this comment. Ok, so I found out she ia a blogger who is battling cancer, and that this post is part of a worldwide group of bloggers who wish to show their support for Leontien.

Lovely flowers... I looked at other blogs linked to this one. What a lovely gesture of love and support from the blogging community!

Love
Lidia

All our daffodils are over now and just ugly stalks and leaves remain and these have to be left to give nutrition to the bulb.
They are lovely though when in bloom.
