~Christ is All~

O lover to the uttermost,
May I read the meltings of Thy heart to me
in the manger of Thy birth
in the garden of Thy agony,
in the cross of Thy suffering,
in the tomb of Thy resurrection,
in the heaven of Thy intercession.

Bold in this thought I defy my adversary,
tread down his temptations,
resist his schemings,
renounce the world,
am valiant for truth.

Deepen in me a sense of my holy relationship to Thee,
as spiritual Bridegroom,
as Jehovah's Fellow,
as sinners' Friend.

I think of Thy glory and my vileness,
Thy majesty and my meanness,
Thy beauty and my deformity,
Thy purity and my filth,
Thy righteousness and my iniquity.

Thou has loved me everlastingly, unchangeably,
may I love Thee as I am loved;
Thou has given Thyself for me,
may I give myself to Thee;
Thou hast died for me,
may I live to Thee,
In every moment of my time,
in every movement of my mind,
in every pulse of my heart.

May I never dally with the world and its allurements,
but walk by Thy Side,
listen to Thy voice,
be clothed with Thy graces,
and adorned with Thy righteousness.

Friends for life!

Following the Senior Portraits I did a photo shoot for Victoria and her dear friend Dottie. 
This was a lot of fun and I enjoyed capturing the two of them together! 

Miss. Victoria Bulman ~ Senior Portraits

Yesterday I did the senior portraits for a friend of mine. 
The weather was perfect.... Warm, sunny and a little breezy.
 Here are just a few of the pictures I was able to capture.

A great Birthday Card...

Yesterday was Mom's birthday. One of the great cards she received reads as follows:

Birthdays are good for you.
Statistics show that the people who have the most
live the longest!!!

A quote for the day...

"Help me to honour Thee by believing before I feel, 
for great is the sin if I make feelings a cause of faith." 
(Valley of Vision p. 14)

From 'The Valley of Vision'

'Thou art all my good in times of peace, 
my only support in days of trouble,
 my one sufficiency when life shall end.

Help me to see how good thy will is in all, 
and even when it crosses mine
 teach me to be pleased with it.'
