This the spot where I am supposed to write all about myself, my accomplishments, my goals, why I am here writing this blog.
The first thing I can say is that I would be absolutely nothing without Jesus. He is the unbelievably amazing God who somehow loves me after all the gross sin within. Because let's face it, we are all a complete mess so full of sin that our best deeds are as filthy rags to our God. Because He is perfect and flawless and pure and we are all held acountable to His standard of perfection. But He has a power and plan surpassing anything this world could do to fix itself. Anything that I or you could do to fix ourself is in vain. That is why Jesus is the most amazing -- for God had a plan and sent his son Jesus and He died for me -- and for you. And now I am forgiven. See, Jesus took all our sins this world has ever known and bore them upon himself. He did that so that we could stand before Him and be faultless and pure and righteous before God and have a relationship with Him.
With that said, I'll tell you a bit about myself. I am very blessed to have a mom who homeschooled me all the way through high school. I graduated in the spring of 2011 and wondered what to do with myself after having finished school. I thought I would meet a boy, fall in love, and be married. I was ready, after all, I mean I didn't ever dream of a professional career. I only ever wanted to be married and have babies and keep a home. God seems to have other plans than what we deem best, and though that is the biggest dream I ever hope to have, maybe God is teaching me patience -- or maybe I will never know. Sometimes His ways are not our ways, and I need to trust Him with everything.
Fast forward three years. I worked a few years at a candy store then got a full time job at an office. I've worked there over a year, and it has taught me to persevere even when I don't want to.
And now? I have some big new ideas and plans, and I am am excited to announce the official opening of my photography business. And I have plans of teaching in my future. More on that to come. But for now, let me be content to post pretty pictures of things and people that all have lovely stories of their own. Stories that deserve to be told.
