Things I Love!

I took photos on Saturday afternoon of a high school senior who is just beautiful and precious to boot! We've done swim team with her since she was tiny. She also runs cross country, and we see her quite often at meets. Needless to say, we had a BALL!!! We went to a farm owned by some wonderful folks at our church. The property was simply breathtaking. Many brides have been photographed there for their wedding portrait. I could see why.
Is she adorable or what? Y'all, I am simply having a great time doing what I love!
Another thing that I am loving is spending time in God's Word! Oh, it is so rich in Truth! I keep finding nuggets hidden in the pages just for me from God! This Wednesday, I am leading a workshop that I mentioned awhile back--praying the scriptures for your husband. I cannot wait to share more nuggets of His Wisdom with some of our gals at church. It is so exciting to see how God can use each of us for His purpose. Please keep these ladies and myself covered in your prayers! I really do appreciate it!
Here is the scripture that I am leaving y'all with today: "For God is not a God of disorder but of peace." 1 Cor. 14:33. I am trying to become obedient to that--therefore, the dishes are calling to be unloaded from the dishwasher, and the clothes need to be folded. Order...order!! And, once I get all of that done, I am pulling the Christmas boxes out of the attic and cranking up the music! Got to when it's 75 degrees outside!!

Sweet Blessings!

Susan,
The pictures are wonderful! I especially like the last one. I'm so happy for you, that you're branching out in more ways with your God-given talents. I wish you lived closer, because I'd book you in a second!

Hugs,
Kelli

What an awesome privilege, Susan. To do what you love and to love what you do...not to mention to be gifted at what you love. I love the last two...not that the first is not great. BUT I just love me some rustic...the red barn and the rustic barn.

So glad to "see" some of your work; although, I already knew you were great, sister friend. And you had to mention that she ran and that she was tiny...

Hey Girl,
I have a prayer request for you. Would you take a minute and read my blog and pray with me?

I would still love to get together sometime and have some coffee or cinnabons together at Gaffney.

Loved, loved, loved the pictures!
Praying for your study also.
I'm a little tiffed at my husband tonight so I could use some verses on how to pray for him!
