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.

Dimple's Doings

"Dimple" is my hobbit name. It was generated by a website my daughter found after the release of "The Lord of the Rings," and I was charmed!

I make my home with my husband in beautiful northern Idaho, USA. I enjoy Bible study, photography, family history, knitting, crocheting, and blogging. You will find examples of some of my pursuits on my blogs:
Meditations of My Heart is where some of my photos live,
One Family's Story and Callen Catch-All are about my family history, and
My Bible Blog has some insights and thoughts on God's word.
