we have officially entered into this new season that has been lingering before us. it is bittersweet and full of joy. we have much to give thanks for.
i will continue to strive to live in the moment and find Him in those before me—NOW! i will continue to seek to live in the moment so that i am part of the action not merely capturing the memories from behind a camera/phone.
may my mind and heart be the blog that pleases Him. may this physical blog be, only, a tool to help me better live out my vocation and share my JOY.
