Moving Forward

This was taken in the southern part of Turkey on our trip there this past June.

When I look at this picture above, I feel a forward movement. The idea that this boat is cruising ahead and not stopping.

Some days when I think about where God has taken me over the years, I can see that I have clearly been on his ship, watching the water part as we cruise from one thing to another. It's always his leading and guiding and I feel like I'm along for the ride! 

Photography began for me like this--I wasn't looking to start anything, but God literally dropped customers in my lap. I wasn't even confident in my skills, but God knew better and allowed others to feel confidence in what I could produce. And now, this photography exhibition--I wasn't looking to do anything like this. It just happened. 

I'm so thankful that God is moving my ship forward and is in control of my life. If he weren't, then well, I really wouldn't be where I am today! So all thanks and praise truly goes to Him!

So I'm thankful today that I have been moving forward over these past 7 years in photography. It's been a fun ride. I'm excited to see what will happen next!
