Bedside Views



Today I've been pondering photography and how it is far less about the camera and far more about training my eyes to see. Certainly, a good camera is a wonderful tool for making beautiful pictures, but if my eyes remain untrained to notice beauty and light and moments the camera is of little use.


It felt like spring today. This afternoon I loaded up the children and we went to the park to feed the fish. We enjoyed feeling the warm sun on our backs.


If you're in the midst of a trial right now please read this Letter to One in the Valley. If you're not in the valley read it anyway. Aside from God's word these words will be some of the best you read all week... words of grace and truth, conviction and challenge, encouragement and comfort, balm for weary souls.
