If you live in the Central Valley, then this is probably a familiar site to you...

flowering plum orchard

It's a beautiful gift every Spring that doesn't last very long.
Soon those trees won't even have a hint that they were covered with flowers.
They will be completely covered with green leaves.
But sometime from June - September (depending on the type of tree), they will be full of delicious fruit.
This beautiful gift is just evidence

of the real gift that is coming.

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.
I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5:19-23
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control

of the real gift that is coming.
The one who sows to please the Spirit,
from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
Galatians 6:8

I have been thinking and praying about more simplicity in our lives.
And in doing so I came across Luke 18:16-17

“Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them!
For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive
the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”

Have you ever considered how a child receives the Kingdom of God?


Bruce and I took Molly out to get some pictures in the wild flowers last week, before they were cut down.
She had so much fun just noticing the flowers.
You can't really tell in these pictures, but there were little pink flowers mixed in with the yellow flowers.
She ran and spun and picked flowers - lots of flowers.
And she cried when it was time to go home.
She has asked me twice in the past week if we can go to the flowers again.

Simplicity lives in the wonder of a child.

Why photography with an eternal purpose?

In 2008 I read a book by Francis Chan called Crazy Love. While reading that book, I was challenged in the way I gave back to God. Tithing couldn't be enough anymore, but our family lived to the end of our means - without any margin for God to use. So I prayed about how that could change. This venture is one of the ways I have responded to the answer to that prayer. A photography business where God gets the majority of the earnings to use for His purposes.
I'm not sure what that fully looks like yet, but I'm excited for the potential of what God is going to do.
