Sunday Morning

Sunday Morning, a photo by MarLeah Joy on Flickr.
I believe in my post yesterday I said something about going rock climbing or sky diving...? Right. Well, I had a clue at the time I wrote the post that I might actually be doing something exciting this weekend...
It all started with a little phone call to my mom yesterday morning, asking my whole family infact to travel up to Wisconsin and go skiing, ice skating, and fellowship. Of course my Dad and sister have to work, and my mom never feels like she has enough time here at home. So the invitation was still extended to me.
One small problem, folks. I have like NO money at all. I am now living the phrase that I used to hear all the time: "When you don't have a job, you have all the time to go anywhere you want, but no money. When you have a job, you have all the money to go anywhere you want, but no time."
I have applied to soooo many places, but to no avail. I really want a job to give me a kick start in photography. But God hasn't seen fit to allow me to get a job yet. Sometimes, that can be pretty discouraging and annoying when I know it's a "good thing" (to desire to have a job), and yet God is not giving it to me.
But I am learning "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." (Philippians 4:11)
And right now if God is seeing fit to allow me to fulfill other dreams in my life (like traveling, skiing, having time for photography), why should I worry and fret!! *Duh MarLeah!!* He knows the times and seasons of my life better than my own heart. So I will trust Him.
Anyway, with all that said about my whole job/money situation, my parents were kind and gracious enough to let me go and they are paying for it. (I can never thank them enough)
I feel stupid and childish living off of my parents this way, but once again... I need to just trust God though it all.

And somehow this picture I posted actually does tie into all of this. Believe it or not. Lol
It ties into the part about me having time right now to do more with photography because I don't have a job ;) Yeah. :) So this picture was taken Sunday morning at the lake (like the one with the dog). It was a beautiful warm morning and so relaxing, and such a nice mini photography "adventure". Ha!
