Focus: God’s Beauty through the Shutter.


I’ve been in a photography mode lately; playing with different photography manipulation tools.

This quite frankly distracts me from writing, which I actually get paid to do! =D Thank God for residules!

However, in all of my frustration with my  …… issues  {this is how I may refer to my heart for awhile, simply because I will not be persuaded to own these diagnosis’.}, it feels as if it is the only thing I can keep my mind focused on.

Let me clarify why I won’t speak or type the diagnosis’ any more than I have already. My Christain walk is Faith driven. I view myself a a woman strong in faith. I know without doubt that God built me for this. With all that I have gone through in life, and like too many, I have experienced too much tragedy. My …… will not be one of those tragedies. I know that I am healed, I know my God has this in hand and will turn all of it to good, because I love Him and am called according to His purposes.

 God said that by Jesus’ stripes we were healed, and that He (God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus) was not a man that He should lie, therefore I take my Father God at His Infallible Word. 🙂 So the fact is:

“God sent His Word and delivered me from ALL destruction.” Psalm 107:20

Back to the photography.

In my frustration and depression? disappointment? discouragement? with the …… I seek out beauty, in my disciplined effort to ‘look to higher things’…God things.

One of those things are Photography and Inspirational sites/blogs.

Beauty and God…they are basically one, and He has created individuals to provide our senses with the necessary “Light” to endure our trails. God tells us:

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
   where does my help come from?  Psalm 121:1


Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Through a friend on Facebook, when she posted her engagement pictures, I was drawn to…

 Kelly Sauer Photography and  Kelly Langner Sauer, her blog.

There I found beauty and light and joy, on this very trying day, week, month of my 

“You see, within the beauty before me I seek healing. In my healing I experience beauty before me.”
