Project 365 | Week 3

January 21, 2011

Here’s my favorite shots for the week! 🙂

Saturday- I made a hat

Sunday- It rained.... a lot

Monday- Taking advantage of the rare sunny day

Tuesday- Who says college students don't eat well? Ignore the fact that this was consumed at 9 pm

Wednesday- Stopped by the fountain to snap some pics

Thursday- My interpreting gear. Danskos and a fun leather bag! Spent the day in workshops

Friday- Stir fry for one. Smelled, looked, and tasted delicious.


You Capture- Circles

January 19, 2011

I was really excited for this week’s challenge, but like Beth I struggled finding circles for whatever reason.
Anyway, without further ado… here’s my shot 🙂

Two of my favorite circles. These are my wood-cookies from camp. To work at this camp you are required to have a camp name, and Ace has been mine sine I was a camper. Our wood-cookies help show off your camp name as well as your personality. It’s inevitable that I end up making wood-cookies for many counselors each summer. You can find these suckers hanging from the mirror in my car reminding me of all my awesome camp memories over the years.

Check out more circles here!

Monday Motto

January 17, 2011


I find this one to be quite suiting to the recent weather, both weather wise and in my life.

Who’s joining me for this dance party?

“I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught.” – John 14:27 (The Message)

I’ve been struggling with the concept of peace lately. I’ve been feeling pretty discontent with where the Lord has me, and that’s never a good think. This verse has spoken to me fairly regularly over the last few weeks. I’m all too familiar with the visual that comes with how the world typically leaves us feeling, abandoned and bereft.

I will admit that I had to look up the word ‘bereft’. Other related words for bereft are: lovelorn, unbeloved, bereaved, grief-stricken, grieving. How true is that? I can agree fully that the world leaves me feeling all of the above and then some. But how amazing is it that we have a God who will never leave us feeling like that. With Him we are always loved; we are His beloved.

As much as I hate these feelings of abandonment, God has used them to draw me closer and closer to Him. He is showing me that He is everything that I need and that He has always and will continue to take care of me and my mending heart. It’s in these low moments where the only thing that I can do is call out to my Savior, and shoot does He show up. The current path that I’m on is a bit bumpy, but my destination is so worth the journey.

Wednesday- High school group

Thursday- Different roomie texting with her nose

Friday- Full rainbow, just for me!

You Capture- Doorways

January 14, 2011

This week was a bit of a challenge for me, but I succeeded in getting some sweet shots (thanks to my sweet new camera!!) 😀

I found this adorable little gate whilst out on a walk this last week. I totally creeped in these people’s drive way to get this shot. I was laughing at myself the entire time thinking, “Man…. the things I do for You Capture!” It was so worth it though!! 🙂

This is from the same evening walk. Every time I pass this by I wonder what it’s for, and this week I totally saw a doorway in it!

And I just love this picture. Granted the doorways aren’t in the forefront of the picture, they are still there. This is my roommate’s and my idea of a crazy night…. Red Bull and Cranberry Juice 🙂

Go and check out more doorways at Beth’s blog, and join in the fun. I know that I’m super excited for next week’s challenge! Anyone else??

Stellar Creation

January 8, 2011

I’m spending this weekend with my dear (former) roomie in her new home, which is conveniently (or not considering it’s more than 2 hours away from me. Boo.) located at the coast. Anyway, I’ve alway been amazed with the beauty of the ocean and all that it entails. As my roomie and I were walking down the jetty towards the ocean we started talking about how we can never help but think about God when we’re at the beach. For me, the ocean is the one bit of creation that I can REALLY see my Creator in.

God and the ocean are both:
Powerful and peaceful.
Worthy of fear yet calming.
Mighty and awe-inspiring.
Something that can take your life in an instant,but it’s beauty still draws you to it.

I’m pretty sure we came up with more descriptions earlier today, but they have since slipped my brain. Anyway, the point is that God shows himself to me in the ocean and I cannot help but have a heart of worship while I’m standing in the sand and looking out at His stellar creation in complete awe.
