In the last few months we've traveled and met all kinds of people in different life situations. A few of those places have had wood blocks, like above, where they chop their own wood. This is a new thing for me. I know it is silly, but growing up in the city, we just went down to the store and bought wood. I know someone somewhere chopped it, but I never had to do that chore....or even think about doing that chore! It does make for a good picture, though! :)

On another note, I am thankful to know people who have such different lives than me. It brings things into perspective and shows me the beauty of diversity in our world. Not all of us have the same chores, but we definitely all have work that we have to do.

I believe that God has all given us different tasks to do in our lives--we all have a purpose and can live in that purpose. I believe part of my purpose is to take photos. When I take photos, I feel like I glorify God. I get to take pictures of His creation to show off how good of a Creator He is! That's a fun job! :)

What's your job? your purpose? your calling? It's good--I promise! If you don't exactly know, why don't you ask Him? If you know what that is, tell me about it in the comment section below. I'd love to hear about it.
