Do you ever find yourself having a consistent “theme” through seasons of life? . Well, mine right now is John 15, where Jesus talks about abiding in him, which simply put, means to live a life in personal relationship with him through prayer, trust and obedience. Sounds simple enough, right? But gosh it is so easy to get distracted! . He goes on to say that “apart from him we can do nothing” - meaning of significant or eternal value. It’s easy to get caught up in wanting to do good things with our lives, for others, for our businesses, but that’s only going to go so far on its own. . So lately I’ve been trying to “abide” more. To be still and be with him. This is where life is, and THIS is what enables us to love and serve and live in ways that have an invaluable worth long after we are gone. . So instead of rushing off to do all the good and important things, let’s spend a little time here first. It matters and it makes a difference.
Consider these flowers my Valentine’s to YOU. 💛 Because apart from the real thing, flowers on film is the next option, am I right?! 💐: @sweetwaterstems
Despite the freezing cold front (and chance of snow!) these Texas sweethearts are getting married today, and I get to capture it! 💛 . Preparing to bundle up and think back on all the hot summer days @jleewall and I spent working at summer camp back in college. That will keep me warm, right?!
