"Date a girl who takes photographs. Date a girl whose favorite sound is the click-click of the shutter as it closes and opens to capture a memory. Date a girl who sees the wonder in the simplest things. Date a girl who looks at the world and wonders how to put a little of herself in it.

You might find her in the park, lost behind her lens, the world a blur around her as she tries to capture a single moment in time. You might find her in an exhibit, a look of concentration on her face as she contemplates a photograph that called out to her as she was passing by.  Or maybe you will find her in a bookstore, a book in her lap as she pores over photographs of weddings all the while wondering what hers would look like."

I've been kept busy, I haven't disappeared. I've been here, just in silence.
I haven't been too inspired to post here, so I've just danced in & out on tumblr.
I just like reading, learning & reflecting on those lady lessons. Aren't they great?

Basically, church has kept me on my toes, school has kept me in a love affair with my textbooks, the Lord has kept me loving others as He loves them and photography has brought breath to my  awakened soul.

I'm smiling today. My eyes have been opened to see that there's more in my heart than a heartbeat.
All I dream of, all I desire, all of it, it's part of His plan.
If God doesn't give me what I want, it's not what I need.
I trust Him to fulfill the desires He's placed inside that small compartment
behind the protection of my ribs.
I breathe in, and I feel them juggle.
Anxiousness whimpers a little,
just in time for Faith to speak louder:
Things will be okay; I breathe out.

And even if I didn't know that, I'd still be okay.
I've been captured by Grace Himself.
