I start my day off very early for prayer and reading/studying God's Word. If I get the top button right, everything else lines up. I want to make a God-driven difference in my time here. I want to leave an anonymous legacy.
I am an artist. God designed me this way. My career is fine-art photography and I absolutely love what I do. I crave fresh air. I get giddy with thunderstorms. My Golden, however, takes the opposite position and wedges herself behind the couch!
I have an energy that naturally attracts people. My friends tell me it's a gift. I am keenly aware of my need for balance. It takes time to get to really know someone. Throwing life out of balance to do that "quicker" is a recipe for disappointment.
I relish everyday events, as well as the extraordinary. Real victory is to have an "awesome day" that sounds ordinary to someone else. I am humbly human. I make mistakes every day and some have been around way too long. God brings these up and patiently holds me over the fire. We sweat it out together.
I love children and can only be with someone who feels the same way. My kids are important to me (if I need to explain why, then I am not a match for you) . I take my responsibility as their earthly parent seriously. Most of my days, I am a very happy person, alone or with others. Life is just so amazingly cool and I feel blessed to be a part of it.
I believe God puts challenges in our lives as lessons. I think He sets them up and then whispers "Learn. Look to Me and I'll teach you. "
