Just a little Lola to Brighten your day. Admit it, you just smiled.
She is such a good doggy, um well most of the time…
This morning as I settle down at my computer I am feeling so loved by the Lord. It never ceases to amaze me how much he orchestrates my life, bringing me not only good, but best. There is a difference. And he knows what is best for me, I trust him fully. This weekend I had a photo session. The weather was AWESOME, the best day we have had all year. The day before was rainy and cold, and when I woke up monday to a gray sky, I just smiled. How awesome is he to provide that warm sunny day just when I needed it?
I have been praying a lot lately about letting go of my tendency to worry, and my want to strain and struggle to make things happen before their time. Why is this so hard for me? Most all this worry has to do with my work as a photographer. Am I good enough? What if I freeze up and look unprofessional? What if I don’t succeed? What if I do succeed and I hate it? The Lord is reminding me that he knows what is best for me, and he knows what success will look like in my life. I just have to trust him and be patient.We are so loved by God it astounds me. He takes on our cares, and gives us back gifts in exchange. I usually over look this, and find something to complain about, instead of being thankful for him providing for me. I need to learn to see my life and my success through him, and know that the world’s standards are not the same. And that is a good thing.
When I feel down, discouraged, or ungrateful, I only have to think of this amazing man. How he selflessly loves me, and encourages me to pursue my business dreams, at the sacrifice of immediate gain. Oh and our honeymoon to Hawaii, I am pretty grateful for a treat like that!
I can’t wait for Summer!!! I miss the warmth on my face, and bright morning sun.
