It has been awhile since my last post. I have taken a break from photography, but would like to continue to share my heart with you. Today I read in my devotional the following scripture that encouraged me. May you be encouraged too.
He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Just think we are essentially a master piece, a great work of art. We are shaped and molded with each life experience and word of God, continually changing into something beautiful. When we surrender the canvas of our life to God the painter, he can create an amazing master piece that will reflect Himself. Have you ever watched an artist in the middle of his creation? You might wonder why he made certain strokes or used certain colors which don't seem to make sense at the time. It is not until the work is complete can we fully reflect and appreciate his creation. So dear friend your canvas is coming along beautifully... allow the master painter to do his great work in you. Others will admire your working canvas and be encouraged about their own.
May we allow Him to create and reflect himself in us.

Above are some of the little goodies I am going to include in a gift bag which I hope encourages them.
- Journal with Pencil
Tag message is Pslams 3:3 "Let love and faithfulness never leave you; write them on the tablet of your heart." Writing in a journal can help clear your head and over time can really help you reflect on what God has done in you and for you. I also like to write my prayers to him. Its kinda like a conversation book between me and God.
- 3 Musketeers
This represents the sweetness of the Trinity. God-Jesus-The Holy Spirit. When we realize that we have our "3 Musketeers" fighting for on behalf, it makes us approach our battles differently. We all want a hero and we have one, we just need to call on Him. God is so much bigger than any disease, dissappointment or battle we may be facing. Take a leap of faith and believe God and His word. His power is real and ready to fight for you. Engage it!
- Ring Pop
This was such a fun one, since girls love jewelery. We are royal heirs to God's kingdom through Jesus, which makes us princes and princesses. It is a good reminder to for us to walk tall and know who we are. Be proud that you are part of God's royal family and learn the legacy and share it with others. You are very precious to the king.
I will also be including some sample cosmetics (thanks to a donation from the Houston Women's Chamber of Commerce) and one of my favorite books, Captivating by John and Staci Eldredge.
Thank you all for praying for the annointing of the Holy Spirit at this event. I know that God is doing amazing things in the hearts of our youth. They are the future and I am honored to invest in their future.
