Delicate. Slow.

The first camera club meeting of 2019 features the theme “delicate” with my favorite critiquer, Jeff Miller. I’m looking forward to this one.

When Christmas doesn’t feel all merry & bright

P1410809-sm

This year my smile seems a little more forced and I’m actually ready to just to go bed. We’ve had losses before, actually, several years close together, we lost family and it all comes more to the surface at Christmas. I still cry about losing Trinity. I know what you’re probably thinking. She was “just” a cat and it’s been 9 months and I should move on. Her death was such a shock and I just don’t feel “merry.” Or, that is not what Christmas is really about. I should celebrate Jesus and be grateful for salvation and the gift of eternity, and the time I have and had with my family. I guess you can’t fully appreciate the mountain tops if there are no valleys. Continue reading

Happy 9th birthday to Sofia

Sofia dressSo this sponsorship thing has not really gone like I’d imagined it would. In the almost 2 years since we’ve sponsored Sofia, we have received 2 or 3 fill in the blank letters from her.  “My favorite color is brown” kind of thing.  I feel I don’t really know her at all and I’m not sure she gets the individual gifts we’ve sent for her in the past. So this year we just did the extra monetary birthday gift and will say an extra prayer for her and her family today on her birthday.  I guess I kind of hoped for a relationship of some kind.  I hope she knows we think of her often and really does get the letters and gifts.

Maybe it is because she is young or maybe it is because she lives in such a remote area, but we’ll keep sponsoring as long as we are able and will keep her in our prayers.
