It's a Beautiful Day





I know it might be a bit weird to have a self-portrait on here (since I'm not really a "photographer"), but this photo is particularly significant. I struggle with seeing myself as a chosen, loved child of God. He gave me a mental picture of how He sees me; it is very similar to the picture above...golden and carefree.

You might be wondering where Matt is. Poor thing. He has the flu! Please pray for him!

I love these pictures. You captured some really tender moments. I especially love the one of you. It is golden and carefree just like you said.

The flu stinks, Poor Matt.

Well I just read the past couple of posts. Looks like you guys had a great time in Seattle. Lots of good food and good friends, great practice for Heaven. Can't wait for the pics. Loved the pics on this post. God does see you that way and it is absolutely beautiful. Hope Matt is feeling better.

You took these pics yourself? They are incredible! I struggle with the same thing and it is soooo amazing when God gives us that glimpse, something only he can do, almost unexplainable with words. Your picture definitely describes it well :-)
