Meredith would love to connect with you:
will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Sunrises and sunsets have always held a special affinity with me. My mother was an avid photographer and besides her family, they were her favorite subject to capture.
With a childhood home on the Pamlico River shore in eastern North Carolina, she had ample opportunity to catch the sun rising and setting its reflection over the water and she must have snapped hundreds, if not thousands, of those magnificent horizon paintings over the span of her life.
I suppose my love for photography grew from soaking in her love for it. Isn’t that how we learn to love, by seeing it displayed?
When I decided to start taking photography seriously, it didn’t take long to realize there was more art than science to this craft. The more I read and the more I asked, there was a common denominator that I learned would make or break a photo. A great photograph is dependent on great light.
An eye for composition is important, as is learning how to properly expose, but the quest to find and capture the perfect light is the biggest challenge and can also be the greatest thrill.
It’s no coincidence that God has instilled both a love for photography and writing in me. I realize now they both go hand in hand. Through my lens and my pen He is drawing me, and hopefully you, always closer to the Light.
When our eyes are closed to the Light, our hearts are closed, as well.
A life lived for self, is a life living blind. In light of eternity, a self-full life leaves no room for joy or light or love…no real joy, no real light and no real love.
Only in the presence of our one and only Light source is our path made straight and our joy found complete.
When our eyes are opened to the Light, our hearts are open to receive the Son.
There is a pull on my heartstrings to keep pointing you and me back to our only source of Life. A plea to keep our eyes fixed on the Light by which all things in life were meant to be viewed.
Life isn’t always easy and it’s not always bright, but the Son is always present, even when we can’t see Him or feel Him. His Light is always there if we let Him show us.
It’s time to open our eyes and open our hearts to life in Light of the Son. When we put all things through His view, we will see clearly the next step to take. And we only need to know the next step…the rest will fall into place when we are walking in the Light.
In His Light,
