Gift one: In July 2010, I picked up the DSLR I had bought over a year prior and decided to delve into learning it. Prior to this, I was using it just for point and shoot. Shortly after I purchased it, my father was diagnosed with glioblastoma, dying six months' later. Little did I know that July 2010, God would provide an amazing gift...the gift of photography...as a way to heal from my grief. I've barely scratched the surface, having learned so much this past year taking some e-courses through Kim Klassen and meeting some fellow "kindred spirits" all over the world, not just into photography, but blogging...reflection....creative arts. The more I learn, the more I see I have to learn...and my appetite is insatiable. Thank you, God, for this gift and the ability to use this gift to give to others.
Gift two: This June, on Father's Day...Edster and I began attending a new church...Maranatha Bible Church. This gift has just begun...and every week we know more and more that this is where we are to be.
Gift three: The gift of a pay increase that just began this last paycheck.
