My Hope is Built on Nothing Less...

Friday, April 15, 2011

All other ground is sinking sand.

Yesterday I was out doing location research for the wedding (George and Kenique) I am shooting this weekend. We were all over the place and I stopped to take some images. I've been up all night working/thinking and its finally time to catch some zzz's at 5 AM (uhh birds are chirping outside)!?? Right now we are debating replacing one of our cars and I need to get that handled within the next week or so. Decisions, decisions. Why don't all cars last for like 20 years? During a short prayer to keep me going this hymn by Edward Mote (1834) popped into my mind. I thought about my pictures from the day and our financial dilemma. Through it all I just kept singing the hymn over and over again. I also thought about my late grandparents. We used to sing this song at their church when I was growing up in Pensacola. The words are very powerful and remind me of where my hope, strength, and courage come from. Anyways, Happy Friday!!

I love your reflection posts. This brought me back to my days attending Abyssinian Baptist Church in NYC. They always sang this song.

I agree with Prudence, I have that song stuck in my head. Brings back memories of my childhood, going to church with my family.

Great work with the new lay out very bright and airy! Thanks for the visit... you know I do not quit! May the one who is your foundation (the Lord that is) give you the supply you need to make the God-honoring decision! Great shots by the way as always...nothing like a jump to add some fun to life ;-)!
