i don't know how it's possible to be feeling so many different emotions at one time. i'm exuberant about so many things, and heartbroken at the same time. it's a real trainwreck in my heart right now. all i know i can do about it, is to pray. and that's huge, i know.
we have dear, dear friends who are going through a heartbreaking time right now. when they hurt, we hurt. i am hurting so much for them right now, it's hard to concentrate. they have opened their hearts and home to the 2 sweetest children, this past year, and they just found out that the children are being placed back in their birthparent's home. i won't go into details, but i would ask you to please pray for these sweet innocent children and their parents. thank you so much.
i also have my friend kelly on my heart and mind today. please say a prayer for her and her family too.
what is up? i know that life on earth isn't perfect, but this is tough stuff. plus, we have so many loved ones facing cancer. i hate that word so much. tomorrow our daughter-in-laws mom goes in for her breast cancer surgery. i think i need to be on my knees more than ever right now. and maybe that's what all of this is about. i'm sorry that the tone of this post isn't upbeat....i'm normally a positive thinking and upbeat person, but there is just too much going on around today, to be as cheerful as normal. i do believe that God works all things together for good, to those who love Him. i'm standing on that promise. i'm praying for miracles for all these situations. i believe that God is good, and that anything is possible, if we turn our cares all over to Him, pray and trust.
there are many positive things happening around me too. i just can't seem to focus as much on them today, because of all the hurting loved ones around me.
of course, one very positive thing right now, is the loft. jared and i worked on it for quite a few hours yesterday....moving things in and cleaning. it's coming along. it's totally usable right now, even though it's pretty empty. i don't want to clutter it up too much anyway. i think clean and simple will work best anyway.
i did an engagement shoot there on sunday. not one single thing was moved in, but i think it worked beautifully. it didn't hurt that jessy and russ are both *movie star* goodlooking!
just looking at these images, makes me even more anxious to shoot their wedding! can you imagine? and the location is KILLER!
okay, so i have no idea what i look like when i shoot. i do know that normally i can tell that i've put my body in weird positions and been contorted in odd ways. seeing myself *in action* is sort of interesting and sort of funny to me! kim caught me and i didn't even really realize it! i had such a wonderful morning with these ladies. i am honored that kim trusted me to do her headshots. seriously honored. and i adore the shots that she caught! i had no idea! interesting sidenote: i knew i was pigeon-toed when i was a kid, but i thought i had outgrown it! obviously not, according to the photos! i just got such a kick out of that! thank you soooo much kim! i loved every minute with you, charlotte and cori! can't wait to get to editing the shots!
i am back at it today. jared will be coming later today or tomorrow to help me do more cleaning and moving at the loft. i've decided to move my kitschy local art pieces to the loft. i think they will look awesome on the changing room wall. it needs some cheery-ness!
have a great day, thanks for your prayers and God bless you!
