Lake Red Rock (personal)

Life is full of beauty. Notice it.

Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.

Smell the rain, and feel the wind.

Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

-Ashley Smith

and so, that’s what I did this weekend.:)

“where are the fishes?”

This little man is as adorable as he is active! I know his babysitter, and as a gift for his parents (he’s almost 2!) she decided to get some photos taken of him. Not a bad idea! (Photo sessions make great gifts, seriously! And mother’s day is coming up here….) (; Ooooops! I’m getting off topic. Gabe was super active once he warmed up to me & my ‘big’ camera. It made it a challenge to capture some photos of him that weren’t blurry, but a fun challenge at that!  I think that we made it work, and had fun. Just a little bit.;)

late-night, thursday kind of thoughts.

I’ve been stressing a lot lately.


As I’m sure you’re aware, stress is a part of life, and it is not fun. However,  it is possible to put more stress than necessary upon yourself. Which just so happens to be what I’ve been doing. I have a lot coming up this summer, and I’m so excited about it! But I am also out-of-my-wits nervous about it.  Making lists. Worrying. Searching the entire contents of blogs for potential help…stressing.

Thanks to this stress, I’ve started breaking out and I’ve had a headache all afternoon. (of course, eating a just a package a little debbie’s for lunch doesn’t help, either.) And I was starting to get upset with myself. Kinda going crazy. Not so good, you know?

And I realized something. I’ve got my priorities all wrong. It’s not about me. Nope. Nothing is. The world, this business, even my life. It’s about Someone much greater.

I’d allowed myself to forget that. Worry and uncertanty had crept in the back door, because I’d left it open for that when I had started to focus on these worries. on me.

So. I’m taking a step back. I’m trusting that God will provide for my needs, I’m giving Him these exciting but scary situations, and I’m going to set my priorities back where they belong. On glorifying Jesus with my life. Knowing Him, and helping to make His Name known.

Because that is what this life, all life, is all about.
