Self Promotion

This morning I was reading an article on about self promotion.  Way too often we feel like we need to promote our self to get attention, popularity, and "get our name out there."  Are you willing to give up your dreams and popularity to the Lord for Him to take care of? 

"He does not call us to be noticed and applauded by the world.  He calls us to decrease, more and more, that He might increase within us." ~ Lesli Ludy 

Luke 14:11 says, "...he who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

Photo tour

For my birthday mom and dad paid for me to take a photo class at a nature center down the road.  It was a very profitable afternoon, I learned so much!!  My pictures are looking a lot better all ready.  We learned about the composition of photos, how to draw your viewer's eyes into it, have it tell a story.  I always wondered how people got clear pictures in dull lighting, well now I know!  Also, see that +/- button on your camera?   Use that setting to change the exposer, normally photos are over exposed so they look a little washed out, with this button you can make your pictures have a much richer color!  You probably know this, but I didn't and it was a BIG break-through in my photography!

I really wanted to post some pictures for you all to see, but our Internet is working really slow and refuses to upload photos.  I will post them as soon as I can.
