The Fragrance Of Your Love

20180813_155957_0001Marks of disgrace can easily follow those who face a mental health challenge. People may shy away from you, make fun of you, and even ridicule you, because they are blinded by their own ignorance.

What a shame!

If they took time to know the real you, and the image in whom you have been created, then maybe they might be more sympathetic in building an authentic relationship with you.

Do you agree?

Prayer:

Lord Jesus,

May you continue to lead us, as you help us to end the stigma about mental health issues. May we forgive those who have hurt us, and let you love those through us, who need to see your love. Thank you for showing us your grace and mercy, as we walk in the fragrance of your love. Amen.

Taking Great Photos

20180812_094148
I am an amateur photographer, but I love taking pictures.

Currently, we are on vacation in Manitoba, and I was able to snap a photo of this morning glory, at our friends place.

What do you think?

Taking great photos involves more than I know, but here are a few suggestions:

  • look for an opportunity to capture the beauty of God’s creation, and when you find it, take a shot.
  • think about what speaks to you in the photo: for example, in this photo, I wanted to capture the brilliance of light inherent within the flower.
  • share it with others: ask your friends what they think, see, and appreciate about your photo.
  • let God speak to you through your creativity.

Prayer:

Thank you Lord Jesus for giving us the opportunity to take photos. May we have fun as we learn, grow, and develop this passion with us. Amen.
