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.

The Start of Another Blog

Hello and welcome! I hope you are blessed today with the right weather, the right conversations, and the right accomplishments. God is good.

The question is, Why in the world would anyone, let alone me, want to start a blog? I don't write letters much, and am usually less than eloquent in any of my communication with anyone. But here I am. I hope to have my thoughts, as varied as they are, in one place. I hope that others will find some of them interesting, useful, or amusing.

Until next time!
