Bunches of Things

Lately I've been reading the Bible a lot. Amongst all this business I make it a priority to set aside some time. Right now I'm reading Romans. The words of God are so comforting and encouraging. One of my favorites - I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Whenever I'm having a really bad day, I think of this verse.  And I know that I can get through anything with God! 
Todays Homework Pile 
Whenever I have spare time I'm always diving into these sort of books 

This week I'm getting ready for my very first Photography Show!!! I am just exhilarated.  I never even dreamed of being in a show until  at least my early 20's. So how it all started.... in case you may be wondering...  My mom was invited to a holiday party a few weeks ago. She wanted me to tag along with her...  The reason?  There was going to be a portrait photographer there. Mom thought it would be nice for me to talk with her. I didn't particularly want to go. I was busy... After some hesitation I finally decided I'd go. It was also a very nice break from my homework.  After a nice long chat with this women, I forgot her name, sorry! She was telling me about this photography show that is happening near the end of November, and that I may be interested in attending to meet some local professional photographers. We exchanged contact info, so that way we could keep in touch. The really amazing part is this! Just as we were walking out the door to leave, the lady in charge of this photography show came in the door.  This was completely unexpected too! The women that I exchanged information with told me to stay.... because  this was the lady I needed to talk too.  After a great conversation --- It turned out that rather then attending the show, I was going to be IN the show!
I suppose you can guess what I've been up to these last few weeks, right? Figuring out which pictures I want to sell, printing pictures, deciding how many of each photo I want, deciding on how many different sizes to order, purchasing mats and frames, signing EACH photograph, ordering business cards... The list just goes on..... I have to say a huge thank you to my wonderful mother! She has helped me tremendously with all this. I couldn't do it without you. Also, thank you grandma and grandpa for helping me with the costs. Here are a few pictures of a work in process. 

By the way, everyone is invited to attend this event. It takes place on November 27th, 2010 in downtown Mount Vernon. If you'd like more information about the show please leave a comment with your contact info. 

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

What keeps you busy?
