A Couple of Firsts   Leave a comment

One of my first instructors in photography taught me that the eye will always be drawn to the light in the image.

That struck me as profound and still does even more so today – Whether conscious or not, light is what we seek and what inwardly we know is life.

For me, God is my light, God is love, and has provided a promised path to follow –

Another first — When I heard this scripture in my first formal study of scripture from Genesis to Revelation – it literally burned into my heart, and the heart of my memory.

Proverbs – 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways – acknowledge Him – and He will direct your paths.

That path is the light and love of God that each day I must commit to follow anew. I sometimes don’t know where it will lead but I trust in the Lord with all my heart to follow — For me the alternative would be living in the shadows with fear and doubt.

I love God, I love light, and yes, I love, and am grateful for the gift of photography — to continue to search for the light and live it through pictures, and with words to magnify God’s presence, I pray.
