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.
Beautiful--both the photos and poem! Makes me long for those late summer days!
Oh Dimple this is beautiful the words and the thistles. I cannot wait to see thistles the snow is gone but the cold remains. Hug B
Lovely! Thank you for sharing ...
It's so much fun when you can get your camera to catch a nature miracle...lovely poetry/story too :)
You have caught the picture beautifully, both in words and with camera.
Thistles have a certain nobility about them, and you've well managed to capture it in your pictures. The little poem complements the pictures with its lovely rhytm and rhyming.
Love your sweet poem -- thistles are usually not a welcome sight around here, but I like your fluffy images. :)
