Redeeming Love and Constructions Sites

Reading is something that I love to do. I get that from my Mother. Growing up, I remember sitting by the pool, watching my mom rip a part a 300 page book like it was nothing. Slowly but surely, my love for books grew, and I love nothing more than getting lost in a good book.

For Christmas, Josh and I went to visit my family in Jacksonville. The room that we stayed in has a big book shelf full of books and often times I go up to that room just to search through her new additions of books and pick out ones that I want to take home and read. I know if momma reads them, and they make it to that particluar book shelf, they have something in them that is rich and powerful.

The day after Christmas, my fingers lightly grazed the spines of many books, searching for the one that I could get lost in...when there it was. Little did I know, this book called Redeeming Love, would completely change and rock my world forever. I read the whole thing in one day. I could not put it down. It captivated me and made me understand truly how deep and how wide God's love is for us. I encourage you to pick up this book and read it. My darling sister who doesn't like to read much, loved it and could not put it down either. I know that if you trust my recommendation you will feel, captivated, encouraged, and lucky. Once you read this book, I know a bunch of you will send me a box of cookies cause you loved it that much! :) *wink*

My prayer for you today (yes I pray for my blog readers!!) is found in Psalm 20, " May God give you the desire of your heart & make all your plans succeed."

On a totally different note, I wanted to share a couple of photos from a commercial shoot that I did for a company called EMR. EMR "is a leading provider of professional and technical services in the fields of engineering, construction and the environment." I was asked to take a few pictures for a brochure they made for their company, and although it is far cry from my normal wedding work, I had a fun time running around one of their construction sites to shoot some of their employees.

LOVE that book!! I got it for my birthday this year and LOVE it. I was caught up reading popular romance novels, letting my heart get discontent with where God has me right now (single and waiting) when I got this breath of fresh air. This book changed the way I think of love. Two words:

Read it.
