Would you like a really good laugh at my expense?

God must find me pretty darn humorous at times!

This morning I was thinking about all of the photography themes on G+ and said I was going to just start curating some off the wall group like "thimble thursday" and see if it took off. Then, I moved on and forgot about. But, during my prayer time, I picked up "The Power of Simple Prayer" by Joyce Meyer and she began to discuss what most people pictured as prayer. She explained a famous painting of an elderly gentleman kneeling with his head bowed, hands clasped and eyes closed. And, to myself, I thought, "I would love to create an image completely opposite of that to open people eyes to what prayer really is." 

Then, my next thought was, "I would love to actually throw the idea out there to all of the photographers/photo-manipulators on G+ and see what they come up with. Kind of like the Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunt but with only one item and one goal. How awesome would that be?!?!"

Then, that thought connected me to the next one, "Wouldn't it be cool if it could be a constant running daily theme." 

Oh, and there it was! Full circle back to my original thought this morning! So, I finally allowed the thought to brew for a minute and started to think of titles and what day I could choose. I would love to incorporate my two passions... both things I use G+ for, photography and God. 

But how? I know there is a "sacred sunday" theme but that goes against everything I'm trying to get people away from. The goal is to open peoples' eyes to the fact that God shouldn't just be shoved into this little religious box and only pulled out once a week. God is with us all the time, everywhere! Prayer is something that we can do any time anywhere! It can't just be a day, it has to be every day! But, "What should I call it?" hmmmm.... "What should I call it?" .... hmmmm Something that involves everyday???" hmmmm... LOL!!! 

Are all of you laughing at me yet?!?! I mean God must have been up in heaven ready to jump out of His seat or push me over the edge or something! I mean if I can be used in this whole "Christianity" thing, then surely anyone can! 

Oh, and for those of you who don't know me that well, the name of my photography business that God birthed in my life last July is called, "Everyday Art". Laughing yet? :)


  1. I'm not laughing, as u are a remarkable individual my dear :)

  2. Awe, thank you but it's ok to laugh with me... I know I do dumb things at times and laughter does good like medicine ;)
