Looking back at the date of my last post, compared to this post now, clearly it was a rough semester and I had no time to do anything but school! A lot happened this semester, and I can't do anything but thank God for it all.
In the beginning of the semester, my photography sessions died down, due to all the cold and snow. But I have a couple future line ups and current projects I'm working on, and spring photography is well underway!
So much has happened recently, I graduated with my associates degree, and I am currently in Texas for the Junior College National Track Championships. Of course, to get to Texas, we had to fly. I have only flown one other time in my life, so I was a little nervous stepping onto the plane. I had forgotten how beautiful it was flying. Of course, I was all about the pictures! Looking out the window and seeing the blanket of clouds, knowing that underneath the beauty I saw, was a dark and rainy scene to the people on the ground.
Lately, all we've had is rain. Cold, wind, wet. Anything you don't want to experience in May, is the weather we've had back home. When you look up at the sky, all you see is the ugliness of the gray clouds. But I had never thought about what it looks like above the gray clouds. Above it, is a bright blue sky, and white, puffy clouds. Beautiful.
It made me think about how things aren't always what they seem. It may be ugly and cold in our eyes, but if you break open the seam of the clouds the sun is shining and it is absolutely beautiful. Just because we experience ugly days on Earth, God has promised us beautiful and glorious days in heaven. When I'm up on that plane, and I see the beauty of being in too the clouds, I think about the promises God makes and how if we believe in Him, one day we will be up above the clouds, experiencing only beautiful days with the Lord. Don't let the ugly days get you down, have hope for the future and trust in Gods promises.
At the beginning of the year, I decided to do a 365 photo challenge. Everyday I take one picture, showing a piece of what I did that day. So far I've been very faithful to saving one photo a day, for each day. Doing this, reminds me of all the highlights I've had in each day of the year so far. It helps remind me of the things I'm most thankful for and the major blessings in my life. I cannot wait to look at all 365 photos at the end of the year and think about all the great things that occured.
We're almost half way through the year already... Are you happy with where you're at in life? If you're not, what can you do to not let the ugly days get you down? I pray that in the midst of our dreary spring season, that you find the break in the clouds and that you don't let the gray clouds bring you down.
Look around you.
Here's my blog!
I used to think Blogs were pointless, and nobody read them. That may still be the case! But I found reading people's blogs actually made an impact on me, so I wanted to do the same. I love photography, and a lot runs through my mind when I'm taking pictures, so I decided to share all my thoughts with you guys!
