More Fall. And Waterfalls!

Me and a really good friend decided to take our cameras out for two hours. We found some lovely fall colours as well as some lovely fall-ing water!

Fall Colors

I took my camera out today....homework had to wait on account of the beautiful colors outside my window. More are coming as I have an upcoming photoshoot with a friend! But I couldn't resist taking some today :)

Craaaaaaaazy enhanced color..


I found this poem in my devotional book, and I thought it was something awesome I had to share :)

I know that some people laugh at me idealism-
At my effort to be a "light of the world",
At my eager, though often meager attempt to
Shine a ray of brightness into an otherwise
Dark, dank world.

There are times when I understand why people laugh and ridicule.
I mean, how dumb can I possibly be
To think my life really matters amidst
Four billion other people on this cinder speck of a planet
In this distant corner of the spinning, reeling universe.

Dear God, sometimes my light seems no brighter
Than the lambent glow of a single lightening bug
On a very cold,black night-
Barely a flicker, just a quick spark
Amidst darkness deeper than shade of a shadow.

Yet a spark, just a solitary spark is all it takes
To get a bonfire flashing and flaming, burning and blazing.

So, dear God, help me to realize my life does matter,
That being a Christian matters,
That telling others about Your great light matters.

Teach me the secret of high voltage living
So that I might be Your light in my world,
Beginning at home and spreading
To everyone within my circle of influence.

Dear God, renew in me Your Holy Spirit power-
That heavenly charge that enables mere lightening bugs
To flame bright as lightening bolts.

But you will recieve power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

Birthday Paintings

For my friends birthday we decided to fill balloons with paint and shoot darts at them....this created amazing art that my camera decided it would take only fuzzy pictures of. Sadly this is the only decent photo of the awesomeness that ensued.

Robin Hood shot!!!!!

Subtle Hints

As a lot of you may know, I've been struggling a lot lately with what to do with my life. I've been praying for anything that would help point me in the right direction.

I've gotten phone calls from mothers and teachers from the church that I'm going to.

Within a matter of days, I was offered several opportunities to expand my musical abilities.

I now have five piano students. I am an assistant teacher for grade 4-6 choir. I am going to be accompanying the school's Christmas concert this year. And my piano teacher agreed to let me challenge the grade 8 exam in order to be ready for pursuing music in University.

He's not always subtle about things. The answers to questions are finally staring me in the face.

Thank you for Your promises.

Mountain Views

More Pictures!!!

I've got a new computer, which means I get to fool around with some of the included photo editors that I found!

Here are some natural, unedited photos :)

This photo wasn't edited at all! It was a really strange and beautiful sunset/rainbow/thunderstorm!
