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.

I love glassware, and this looks beautiful. I like the way the scalloped edge catches the light.

Olf glass work was really nicer that what we find those days "made in china"...

'Nice' is an understatement. Maybe 'exquisite' is a better word.Your grandma's dish has a special beauty and fine shape.

Beautiful picture -- those old memories are precious~ I have to go visit my kids now to see those old dishes and other memories -- they've already been passed down!

Don't you love using a dish that she handled, served on, and cared for. It's like a little connection over time.
