"Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes;
 and I will keep it to the end. 
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart. 
Lead me in the path of your commandments for I delight in it. 
Incline my heart to you testimonies and not to selfish gain!
 Turn my eyes aways for looking at worthless things and give me life in your ways. 
Confirm to your servant  your promise that you may be feared. 
Turn aways the reproach that I dread for your rules are good behold I long for your precepts; 
in your righteousness give me life!"
Psalm 119: 33-40

I want those words to be my prayer every day.

Happy Monday!

This post might just make it up on a Monday.
I shall just make a little list of some happy happenings of late.
1. People who have the ability to glorify God with music. 
2. Kids. Children. Little ones.
3. Story reading, poem reading, pizza and apple cider.

She // Part Two // Northwest Indiana Portrait Photographer

Thursday, November 6, 2014

She is joyful most of the time. 
Some Alzheimer's Disease patients are always mad. They yell, they scream, they have to be restrained. But Grandma is usually very pleasant. 
She laughs all the time. 
At everything. 
She laughs when she wakes up and as she gets out of bed. 
She laughs when she takes her medication. 
She laughs when she sits down in her chair. 
She laughs as she brushes her teeth. 
She laughs when she is not supposed to. 
She laughs with no restraint at all. 
She cannot stop herself. 
When she is not laughing, she is talking, and when she is not talking she is sitting quietly staring at nothing in particular. 
When she talks she doesn't make much sense. She often can't get the right word to come out of her mouth so she stutters then gives up in exhaustion. 
So, I love that this little woman, who can barley speak, laughs. 
And laughs all the time.

After I did my first "She" post, I didn't think there would be a sequel, but I have decided to post posts like these more often until Grandma no longer is with us. 
I want to remember her like this, and what a blessing she is to me. 

These pictures, to me, are the best and most valuable pictures I have ever taken. Because my whole heart is in them.

Ian and Clarissa // Central Indiana Wedding Photographer

Every time I look at the pictures from Ian and Clarissa's wedding I get goosebumps.
This wedding was pretty wonderful.
You remember Travis and Elizabeth's (also known as Mr. and Mrs. Powers) wedding? Well, Ian is Elizabeth's brother.
This wedding was full of all the right things.
A lovely venue.
Flowers that were simply gorgeous.
A wedding party full of laughter.
A Christ centered ceremony (looking to a Christ centered marriage).
A couple very much in love. mackenziehopephotography-9921 1 mackenziehopephotography-9987 mackenziehopephotography-0002 mackenziehopephotography-0054 mackenziehopephotography-0122mackenziehopephotography-0134
