It's Friday! HOLLA!

So I feel kind of pathetic. My husband and I are photographers. Like weddings, engagements, babies, families, seniors PHOTOGRAPHERS. I have yet to put even one bit of our work on here! Sad. Very sad. That's going to change very soon! I think October will be a turning point for me with this blog. I can see myself having alot more time as my Loujo and I don't have any weddings booked next month! I guess it would be great to have the extra income but I'm almost thankful that we will be getting some rest.
We have our last wedding for September tomorrow and I'm pretty excited! It's in a beatiful Church with an amazing couple! You can't get better than that! I feel very blessed that God placed them in our lives.
I feel so honored that God has enabled us to be able to do what we love, even if it is only part time at the moment. I fully believe that sometime in the near future we will be doing photography full time. And I CAN NOT wait for that day!
Photography has always been something that was a pipe dream for me. Something that I would LOVE to do but just figured it would be "too hard" or "too risky".
How many times do we really say things like that to ourselves? Like I want to start working out everyday but it's TOO HARD. I would love to start my own business but I'm afraid of the RISK. God has shown me so may times in my life that I need to trust him. So many of the things I have been afraid of God has completely stomped on and turned around. My God is bigger than any fear or any risk! If God be for me who DARE be against me?
Friends, I feel like God is calling all of us today to trust him. To put our WHOLE lives in his hands. Not just when we feel like it. Not just when everything is going our way. That's when its easy. He's calling us to trust him even when it's hard, even when it looks like there's no way out. Its something that I'm still working on DAILY.
I'm pretty much preaching to myself here, just so ya know. :)

Have a wonderful weekend full of HIS blessings!

The end of a LOOOONG weekend.

I've really been neglecting this blog lately. Things have been insanely busy for both Loujo and I. To start things off we moved into a house last weekend which was a bit harder than we thought it would be. You never really realize how much stuff you have until you move. I figured we could have THAT much stuff in a one bedroom apartment. Wrong. So the majority of last weekend was spent packing and unpacking.
Then Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday was the Opening the Heavens conference at Church. It was amazing! I really feel the pull of the Holy Spirit to do more. I'm not quite sure where he's pulling me though.
A few months ago I had thought that I was called to the Children's ministry because after all, I love kids! It was decided that I would be in the 2 year old room and I thought I could handle it. After about 3 weeks of feeling inadequite because I didn't have that "mommy voice" that the little kids would actually listen to I became very frustrated and upset. I began to ponder quitting. So I did. I carry so much guilt about it. I feel like I failed God and I feel like I failed those adorable little kiddies.
I guess I'm just at a point now where I'm not sure what to do? Do I go back to the kid's ministry and ask to be placed in a different age group? Do I try to go back to the 2 year old class and trust that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, even if that means changing some poopy diapers? I'm going to have to keep praying about it because I dont want to fail God again and I don't want to fail those sweet babies. They deserve a teacher who's going to be there with their whole heart.
God is also working on my heart in something else as well. Foster Care. It has been on my heart for awhile now but since we were living in an apartment before it just wasnt possible for us. Now that we have a 3 bedroom house I find myself thinking about it more and more. I just want to make sure I'm doing what God wants me to do. Tomorrow my sweet hubby and I are going to an information meeting about Foster Care in Nebraska so we shall see how that goes. I'm just praying that the Lord would make his will known. Please friends, pray that we would hear the Lords voice so strongly when it comes to Foster Care for us. I just don't want to make the wrong decision.
