{His Peace | Personal}

"You will not find lasting peace in the world around you, in circumstances, or in human relationships. The external world is always in flux - under the curse of death and decay...
"Take time to delve into the riches of My residing Presence." {Jesus Calling, Sarah Young

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in on body, and be thankful." {Colossians 3:15}

Each day remember that we are called to let His peace rule in our hearts, nothing else, just His peace. Everything else fades away when we concentrate on His peace and Presence in our life.

{My Family | Motley, MN Portrait Photography

Finally getting around to sharing these :) It's always challenging to take self-timed family pictures.. but my fam is pretty great at cooperating and waiting patiently for me to run back and forth between my camera and the group {yes, I should probably just buy a new battery for my remote}. I really love how they turned out, and they just make me love my fabulous family even more. I'm so grateful to God for planting me in this family, and for the opportunity to be the oldest. Love you all so much!

{Amy | St. Cloud, MN Portrait Photography}

You've seen this beautiful girl on the blog before... and yes she's my sister, but she's also quite the model. I've been cleaning out my computer and wanted to share these that I'd taken last October :)

{Miracles | Personal}

"We have insulated ourselves from miracles. We no longer live with such reckless faith that we need them... If we get sick, we go to a doctor. If we need food, we go to the store and buy it. We've eliminated the need for miracles." {Shane Claiborne}
"We say things like, 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me'... and then we live and plan like we don't believe God even exists. We try to set up our lives so everything will be fine even if God doesn't come through." {Francis Chan}
"But true faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God's fidelity to His promises." {Chan}

 I have to ask myself, what in my life would turn out to be a disaster if God didn't come through? Is there anything in my life that is requiring me to put my total trust in Him, and just jump?

I say I trust Him, but do my actions and my plans and my dreams show that I do?
