So sorry to have dropped off the face of the social media earth.
I’ve always tried to be as authentic as I can be on this blog – whether it be life related or business related. So, although it would have been much easier to pretend that all is well or to blame the fact that I haven’t been blogging on being busy, I won’t. The truth is, we’ve actually been walking through some really hard times lately; some of the most difficult of my life even. And yet, I am okay. We are okay. God is near. In fact, God has been working on my heart in pretty big ways. I feel God and hear from God and know God more than I ever have before. It is truly an amazing thing to be put in a place where you feel you have been stripped of everything and to realize that all you have is Him….all you have is God.
For those of you who were wondering, I removed myself from facebook and twitter as I needed some time to regain my focus on what is important in life with as little distraction as possible. I realized that I had become addicted to social media (that sounds terribly pathetic…to be addicted to facebook). I have wasted a lot of time being so obsessed with needing to know what is going on in everyone else’s lives…whereas I should have been using that time to get my own life in check. I’ve also realized that I had become addicted to this business. I’ve made this business an idol. Not only have I put it before God, but I’ve put it before my family. Of course, I still love photography, I still love this business and I’m still committed to being great at both of those things….but, I don’t want it like I wanted it 3+ weeks ago. I want God. I want Geoff. I want Boone.
In the middle of everything, a few weeks ago we found out that we have to move out of the home we have been renting for the past year, as the owners need to move back in. Moving day is in 8 days. And as I write this, we don’t know where we are going and have packed somewhere in the neighborhood of 10ish boxes. Logistically, you can imagine how this is stressful. Even so, we are trusting with all of our might that God is right beside us. He knows exactly what He is doing and we believe He will lead our paths straight. We remember His past faithfulness and how He has always provided what we have needed. This is nothing more than an inconvenience, because really, we have all that we need and more.
Anyway, I do have some fun things to blog – Megan’s bridal portrait is one of them….might try to blog that tomorrow if you want to come back to see.
For now, I’ll leave you with a few pics of our little weirdo.
