Tuesday’s Tip: The Not-So-Glamorous Moments {Indianapolis Portrait Photographer}

Happy Tuesday!  Today’s tip is a tip for life overall- a quote to lean into…to soak in.  It is my heart’s desire.  Some days I live into it.  Some days I don’t do so well.  But thankfully God knows my heart…and my heart yearns for it.

For me, photography helps me to enjoy every little thing, to see beauty amidst the ashes, to dance in the rain of life.  It opens my eyes to see.  After reading Ann Voskamp’s book “One Thousand Gifts” I am even more convinced that giving thanks to God amidst the crap of this world is the key to joy.  God is worthy of our thanks.  The fire refines us.  Through the difficulties and hardship, He redefines us and we become whole.  My journey of seeking to dance in the rain is a beautiful ongoing journey of seeking joy in the midst of suffering and giving thanks to God because in this space I need Him.  I yearn for Him.  I realize I can’t live this life on my own strength.  Thank you Meghan Matt for profound words that ties my heart into one beautiful quote!  It’s so easy to have joy when things are good and beautiful, but the challenge to have joy and to en-joy when things are bad, ugly, and not-so-glamorous is one to seek towards.  My days are still challenging since my husband’s accident (almost 4 years ago), but my heart desires this path…the gratitude journey that births joy.
