Beautiful Things

Recently I've been inspired to put together a photo show. The last time I did this was for my brother-in-law's funeral a year and a half ago and prior to that it had been a long while.

I watched a video on youtube, called Beautiful Things by Gungor. It really moved me and called me to look at hope, grace and mercy afresh. As I listened to the song and watched this duo sing and play, I thought of some of the images I've taken over the past years (one of them is posted below) and wanted to marry them to hope, grace and mercy...or maybe they already were and I was just making that connection.

The journey of compiling this kind of project is long for me. The time varies but the process takes me to places and teaches me things and calls me to apply truth to deeper recesses and darker corners...the distance is long, layered and labored.

Whether or not someone sees the end result is insignificant, at least for me, today.

  1. Losing a brother-in-law must have been hard. Though eighteen months have passed, I can only imagine you're still reflecting. And feeling. Even if this project is inspired entirely by the video on You-Tube, the theme of hope, grace, and mercy seems so appropriate.
