As 2014 has come to an end and 2015 is well underway, the time has come to pack up all my festive Christmas decorations. As depressing as this is, I suppose that the anticipation and excitement of putting up my decorations would be diminished next December, should my decorations remain up year-round. Especially since I tend to get into the Christmas spirit by lighting one of my Balsam-scented candles and playing Christmas music while unpacking all of these accumulated snowmen and snow globes. Besides, packing up Christmas means that my favorite season will be soon approaching and I'm definitely craving some sun, sand, and surf. I may have even purchased a new swim suit recently in light of my anticipation.

In honor of my new professional-esque camera, here are some photos (unedited might I add) of my first day using it! I am so excited to learn all the new features and can't wait to drive up to the mountains to photograph the trees changing colors for Autumn!

Just like each one of these flowers is completely different and uniquely beautiful in their own way, so is each and every person.
Apart from adding the text from this photo, nothing else has been modified or edited. In fact, these flowers are so completely beautiful that they don't need any altering or added touches.
This is how God sees each and every person; beautiful the way that they were created; no airbrushing necessary.
That is why I love Psalm 45:11 so much. This verse truly encompasses God's nature and the way that He views us, despite what we might think or choose to believe.
It says that he is ENTHRALLED by our beauty.
The dictionary says that to enthrall means 'to captivate or charm' and includes 'enchant' as a synonym.
How incredible is it to realize that God is captivated by us??
It is such a wonderful reminder that we are simply beautiful in God's eyes, and that our creator is 'enthralled', captivated, charmed by our beauty.
My hope is that you truly feel beautiful; not just today, but everyday, and that you can look to God's definition of beauty, rather than the world's definition of what 'beautiful' means.

This verse captures entirely what FAITH is about. There are constantly times in our lives when we have to have FAITH even when we can't see the whole picture.
Martin Luther King Jr., possibly one of the most persevering persons in history, once stated that
"Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase"
