Pomp and Circumstance…

Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them.” Isaiah 42:9 NKJV I celebrated the graduation of my first born from high school a week ago today.

The Winds of Change…

cy·clone:  “storm with very high winds”  Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary A new job. Another new job. A graduation. That about sums up the changes in my household.

Light, Camera, Action…

Great light is crucial for most photographers. As an amateur, I regularly seek proper lighting.  Photographers lust after and chase after just the right light well aware of the role it plays for noteworthy images. God’s Light is no different. It is crucial for us. We may not readily recognize it but God’s illumination and revelation are what we crave to reach ourContinue reading “Light, Camera, Action…”
