Blowing Bubbles!

The Land the Lord Gives

“Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee” (Genesis 13:17). This command to Abraham from so many years ago came to life for me recently. On May 2nd, not long after reading this in my daily Bible-reading, the invitation came […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

This week Mom and I attended a very nice Mother’s Day dinner with Grandma at her church. It was so good to see friends and neighbors gathering together to honor their mothers.

Big Sandy from a Photographers Perspective

Last week was momentous. I had the privilege of traveling down to the annual ATI Regional Conference in Big Sandy, TX, fully equipped with laptop, camera, lenses, and necessary accessories to document the week-long event. I didn’t go as a student, but rather as a commissioned photographer on assignment. For years, an opportunity like this […]
