This week has been busy, nearly beginning to end.
I started my week shooting a wedding for the first time. My nephew got married and had a small budget so he asked me to do it. I was very resistant because I just wanted them to have something great for the day. I did it and I wish they were better. I have to give myself some slack, but it's hard when it's you. I did get one good shot though.
It just reminds me of what a wedding should be. A celebration of love.
OK, enough with the cheese...it was a lovely wedding and we had fun for sure. Loved seeing my girls shake a tail feather on the dance floor. Totally cracked me up.
Last night was small group and during it I was just struck with the way my biblical counseling class is changing my belief system about psychology. I have always been interested in psychology, fascinated by mental health and mental illness, some of my very favorite classes were studying the human psych. I even worked for the mental health association. And, I still am very interested in all of it, just seeing it through the lens of scripture as opposed to the secular world's view, is even more fascinating.
2 Peter 1:3 says, "His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."
I love how God is making that more and more clear to me by the day.
Yesterday I spent a good part of the day in baking mode. I made cake balls, 2 pumpkin pies, a cherry pie the night before, baked potatoes and yams. I also took Lilla to co-op for homeschool, went to dance class and then headed, with all the food in tow, to small group. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast together. Truly something to be thankful for!
Oh, and on Wednesday I took the girls for a solo trip to the children's museum. I'd never done it before alone, thinking I couldn't handle it. However, I found out it was no problem at all. Thankfully, the museum wasn't too busy, but it was also just a great day. Lots of playing and learning, some presentations we sat through and just an all around great day!
I decided to lay off with taking pictures of the girls for awhile. Lilla told me she was tired of me constantly being concerned about picture after picture after picture. I decided to respect that, although it's difficult. I usually take several hundred a week, at least. I'm learning to release control for sure!
