Saturday night, a “post Valentines” Banquet was held at my church and I was asked to do the photography for the event. Above is an image I captured before the “mood lighting” was set for the evening.
As you know from my previous post, I celebrated my 28th Birthday this past week (Thanks to all my fellow Bloggers for the Birthday wishes, it was much appreciated!). I was so blessed in the fact that I had four different celebrations in favor of my Birthday! Wednesday night at my College and Career Group, Thursday at work, Thursday night with some other good friends and finally, Sunday afternoon with some Family.
I felt very honored and humbled that I’m surrounded by so many great people who care about me. I know God loves me and I felt that He was showing His love for me through all my friends this past week.
One of my favorite songs is by an artist named Paul Colman, it’s called “The One Thing”. It talks about the unconditional love of Christ. “The one thing I don’t question is you, you really love me like you say you do….so hold me….cause I need you”
This past week, I believe God was holding me through my friends.

Amethyst is the February birthstone, my birthstone. On Thursday the 22nd, I’ll celebrate my 28th birthday. As another year has passed, I think of something I was told last year as I talked with an older gentleman who is almost 80 years of age. He said to me, “It’s a blessing to grow old, that’s how I see it”. That statement stuck out to me, it was coming from someone who has seen a lot of life and has found every day of it to be a blessing and is still enjoying his life.
I consider myself to still be a young person and Lord willing, I still have many more years to experience on this earth. As time goes on, I realize more and more that each day is indeed a gift and a blessing.
The above image is of an Amethyst rock that I got when I was a kid. I went through a time of “rock collecting” and this is one that was bought at a “rock show”.
