So I always feel the need to forewarn everyone before I go on about my personal life. I get it…some people would just rather look at images, which is totally fine (that is about the only thing I do when I go to other blogs honestly..shh!) My mother once told me I get too personal haha, I told her this is my blog so back off lady…totally kidding! Love you mom : )
For the past month or so I’ve just felt so weird, and in a complete rut in my life. Like I was stuck. Going no where. But wanting so bad to escape…pack up and move! For those of you who know me…you know I’m all about making quick decisions and just going for it. Well instead…I stopped, and prayed. It’s absolutely amazing how much God has changed me this past year. Continually convicting me of my old ways, and forcing me into situations where I have the perfect opportunity to show just how much I’ve changed. I deal with certain situations completely different than I use to a year ago. All I can say is…God is good. Very good.
A word that has been on my heart for the past couple weeks. A constant ache in my heart that I wished would go away, but of course it wouldn’t. And then the strangest thing happened…I forgave. I was apologized to by someone who I have not spoken with in 9 years! Right when that I happened, I felt so convicted by my own sin of not forgiving. And so I did. We all have people in our lives that we’ve held grudges against, remained mad at, and even stopped talking to because of different issues/arguments. We can’t just stop there. We have to pray for those who have hurt us and/or those who we have hurt. Two verses come to mind when I think of the word forgiveness.
Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.” Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
These two verses just really spoke to me this past week. So if there is someone out there you feel you need to forgive, you should. Okay, there…I’ll stop preaching hee hee. As I continue to write this post I feel myself not really knowing where to go next. So in that case I want to introduce you all to Jessie and James. If you missed their sweet engagement session, you can check it out here. I have tons of great things to say about these two, but I’ll save it for their full post.
This picture is more than just a picture to me. This picture makes me feel.
This picture shows me what love should look like. It paints a picture of something I wish for in my future.
This short second in life that was captured has more meaning behind it than most may realize.
This picture is by far one of my favorites. Of all time. I know its simple…but that is what I love about it.
So thank you Jessie and James for sharing that special second in time with me. It was truly an honor to be a part of your wedding day.
And because this image reminds me of one of my favorite verses…
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
