Photography as prayer

#402 #day20 of placement was my #dayoff and the day where I went to choose my #birthdaypresent…my #photographicreflections can now also benefit from this fabulous #dslrnikon. Over the past year I’ve tried to see #God in the everyday, and #photography has become a #formofprayer. Today then, a #prayerofthanks for the many #gifts we have and are given, for our loved ones and for our freedom to do as we please with these people and gifts. May those who have lost hope find it again through someone who cares, through their gifts of time and friendship, and through sharing food, drink and fellowship. Amen. 

What Are Your Gifts?

#71 #knitting is one of those things that I’ve always been able to do…well, my Grannie taught me when I was really wee and I loved it! I had knitted my first jumper by 7, and went on to give complicated aran patterns a go straight after! I’ve not really seen it as a gift or talent in the past, perhaps I’ve not even admitted to being able to do it… Worse still, I have been known to be envious of people who are musically gifted, artistic or good at sports. I’ve yearned to be good at something failing to recognise the many #gifts and talents that God has given me. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made, and awesome in our diversity and uniqueness! #psalm139 Think about your gifts, and what lovely things you can do with them…and go and do it! #useyourgifts (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
