Our little family sat down together to watch the first of the much anticipated History channel series on The Bible Sunday night. As we sat there watching, we couldn't help but wonder WHO was behind doing SUCH an amazing and awesome job! All we could say was hats off to everyone that worked on this project and the History channel for always doing such a wonderful job on everything they do.
Then yesterday our son's youth pastor (Thanks J!) let the hubs know that there was a story in this month's Guideposts about the folks that worked to make this project come even further to life...
And here I sit today, after reading that article realizing that ultimately GOD was behind this project - The Holy Spirit is very much ALIVE and WELL and working in people EVERY DAY just like Roma Downey and her husband and all of the super folks that have been involved with The Bible Movie.
I hope that millions of people - believers and non-believers alike will take the time to watch all of the installments of this movie and that it will impact each and every one of them in a positive way. All it takes is a mustard seed's worth of faith...For folks that don't enjoy reading, for folks that find the Bible hard to understand or translate, or for visual folks, or even for people that have known and studied the Bible their entire lives, this movie puts words to pictures and brings them to life in the RIGHT way.
Being able to actually see the expressions on these actors faces actually brings us closer to putting ourselves in their sandals, which in turn should bring us closer to GOD. I also feel like, for many - myself included - that some of the emotions and feelings in this movie can help us to put sights and sounds behind what we read in the Bible in the future.
I decided to jump in rather than just dip my big toe today...With a need for extra cash (who can't use extra cash right now??) I decided that it was time to make all my picture takin' start workin' just a lil for me...
For months and months, I have been consumed with WHAT TO DO with my photography dabblings. I have folks ready for family portrait sessions, but the weather is WAY to crazy right now to do anything outside and everything is pretty gray and drab. I've got a few buddies with buns in the ovens, but they aren't far along enough yet for a session AND I don't have any weddings in sight.
In efforts to manage my CREATIVITY ADD I decided to put some of my work out there on a stock image site. In a nutshell, this lets me upload stock photography for other folks to buy/download and I get compensated for it.
After doing some research, DREAMSTIME was the winner.
I'm really excited about this and super motivated...Everything is in God's hands and I'm praying that this step is one of many that I take to move my photography forward in a productive, positive way.
Keller is one of my absolute FAVES because he is all over the place musically...Bluegrass, Folk, Dub-Step, Jam, Alternative, Jazz, Funk, Electronica...(The list could keep on going).
He even just released a bunch of Grateful Dead covers solo on the piano for the Rex Foundation!
Each Keller show is unique, FUN, and a guaranteed awesome experience that will leave you smiling for weeks. We had the pleasure of catching Keller at Ziggy's in Winston-Salem about a year ago and have been hooked ever since.
