Following up on my latest post, I am officially the proud owner of a Canon DSLR camera. I'm still in the baby stages of learning but having fun with it nevertheless! Jillian had the night off (she typically sleeps in the afternoon in preparation for night shift) so we took a stroll around the neighborhood and cooked Sunday dinner soon after. Thanks in advance for amusing me and taking a look at a handful of practice shots.
This weekend consisted of sleep, dinner, a boxing class, church, and quiet time with Jillian. I've felt incredibly exhausted lately-- more than usual. Along with starting a blog, another goal of mine is to listen to my body. When I'm hungry, eat. When I'm tired, don't push. When I need to clear my head, walk. I can honestly say it's working wonders. No rules to follow, simply intuition.
I was muddling through a long list of post topics this morning before church. While walking Jill said, "Why don't you simply post about your new camera?" Boom. It's not flashy yet it was the highlight of the weekend, so here we are! She's good at keeping me tethered; I love all too much to jump ten feet forward.
This morning in church we learned about the stronghold of identity in our lives. When the 12 tribes of Israel were no longer called "God's chosen people," but a sinful nation, they cracked. Elliott challenged us to think of the titles we love and how we would fill our identity if they were stripped away. I know for myself it would include security in my job and living in a desirable city. How would I react if both suddenly vanished?
I love the way an entire day, week, or month can shift in a matter of minutes on a Sunday morning.
To you all-- I hope this week provides something wonderfully unexpected. Until next time!
