Okay, so I've recently discovered two things I love to do.
Yeah, well...I knew I loved to take pictures. But there was something amiss...something not quite there about it all. Perhaps it was that I didn't have my Canon Rebel yet. Ah, yes. It's wonderful. I love my Sony point-and-shoot. It takes wonderful pictures...but, I just spent my weekend taking pictures for a wedding (which was beautiful regardless of the camera) and I fell in LOVE with that Canon. Wowsa. The pictures blew me away. Coupled with my interest in finding creative was to express through images, the camera did execptionally well. So, if you're out shopping for great cameras, I'd recommend any Canon Rebel. It was pricey...but worth it. Now I can help my friends capture memories in a moment. Hmm. Maybe that should be the name of my business (Haha). Memories in a Moment. Yeah. I like it. Hopefully, I'll be posting some pictures soon!
- Reading WWII Historical Fiction/Non-Fiction
"When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit,"
"Someone Named Eva,"
and I'm in the middle of "Summer of My German Soldier."
Good stuff, I say. Good stuff. And it's been only 1 1/2 weeks since I began my reading quest. Quite remarkable how close we are to what we call history...how close we can be to the people who experienced it. They are still alive, some of them - living their story - reminding us of our blessings and freedoms. Wow. I wonder how God is going to use this in my life...I mean, right now, he is by reminding me of His all-sufficient grace through it all. I'm reminded how we are all sinners (whatever the sin - great or small - they're all condemning) and it's the same God of mercy that offers salvation to us all. I'm so thankful for that. So thankful. And for anyone who thinks "There's no way God could forgive me...I've done so much...so many terrible things..." Well, just look at what he did for the Apostle Paul...who called himself the "greatest sinner." God gave him salvation...faith to believe. God gave him a place in ministry...appointed him to serve. We have a wonderful God and I step back and say "Thank you, Father...for saving even me."
