I Will Rejoice

I cry out, O LORD, for your help.
Will you not save me or hear
my voice?
Violence arises, injustice goes forth.
Does none of it reach your ear?
Does none of it reach your ear?

Your glory shall flood the whole earth
like water’s that cover the sea
so deep.
As the fish, we’re swept up in your net,
Oh, Lord, remember mercy!
Oh, Lord, remember mercy!

Though fruit trees are empty and bare and
the work of our hands has died
on the vine,
though flocks and herds are no more and
it seems that you won’t provide,
it seems that you won’t provide;

Yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy in God my Savior
For He alone is my strength.
He makes me sing through my tears.
He  lifts me up high, makes my feet like the deer’s,
He quiets my heart, and consumes all my fears.
Oh, I will rejoice in the LORD.
Yes, I will rejoice in the LORD.

From Habakkuk

Happenings…

It’s been months since I posted here on my personal blog. As they say, “Life takes over.” And it has. My business is moving along and I’m looking forward to all the amazing people I’m going to be able to meet because of it! (I do so love people!)

I recently, for the first time since I was engaged, took a Myers-Briggs type of personality test. I discovered I’m an ENFJ, most of which was not a surprise at all. But the description I found here made me feel good that starting a business is perfectly in-line with  my personality type and that we are sort of… made for it. That was an uplifting and enlightening read!

In all the busyness of working for a busy wedding photography company for the past few years I had somehow neglected to take more formal portraits of my boys. I remedied that last week! Some of you old faithful followers will probably freak out at how big they are now. They’re all gettin’ to be long-legged guitar pickin’ men! (Shameless Johnny Cash & June Carter reference.)

I’m working on amping up my photo gear as I head into more weddings and hopefully births (CANNOT WAIT!) So I enter about every contest I can find online. While I’ll willingly pay for the good stuff when I’m able, I never turn my nose up at the possibility of winning stuff since I did, after all, win an iPad! (Seriously!)Big thanks to the SnapKnot wedding photography directory for offering this great camera giveaway! I sure hope I win!

I’ve been keeping busy with taking photos, finishing off our homeschool year, every now and then writing a quiz for my sweet friend, The Pioneer Woman, training my silly puppy dog who is getting quite large these days, exercising more, juicing and just doing all the normal mom stuff that keeps every last one of us so busy we can hardly see straight. I type this while still in my pajamas, I must point out. They are pink with black and white polka dots, if you needed to know.

What’s keeping you busy these days? What are your plans for the summer?

On the subject of Over-Sharing

I read a post this week about over-sharing on the internet. It was convicting. I also read another post warning us to not feel pressured to share pictures of Jesus and kitties just in case we are afraid we will show a lack of love or respect for those things if we don’t. Furthermore, sharing these images and liking these pages can be a really bad idea anyways. It’s okay, Jesus knows you love him even if you don’t share his pictures on Facebook. And the kitties don’t mind either.

Let’s just say I was inspired.

Meatloaf Jesus Kitties Sharing Facebook Image

Meatloaf says you shouldn’t share dumb pictures on Facebook because you are afraid that if you don’t people will doubt your faith or your love for kitties.

We all need to heed Meatloaf’s words of wisdom when it comes to sharing posts, pages and pictures on Facebook and other social media sites.
