As I mentioned in my very first post a few short days ago, I was offered a challenge to create a blog and work on my photography skills.  I love photography and at times feel pretty confident in my skills.  Then there are the days that I look at other photographer's work and say, "How did they do that?" or "I want my pictures to be that good."  So here I am posting again and linking to another challenge... I stumbled on Ashley over at and then she {snapped}'s challenge to post my favorite shot of the week or one that I just feel like showing off.  So after work today, I grabbed my camera and decided to venture around my house to see what I could find.
As I was adventuring, the word commitment popped into my head.
I seem to be having a lot of conversations about COMMITMENT lately...hmmm is God trying to tell me something?
According to Webster's online dictionary the definition of COMMITMENT is:

1. the act of committing.
2.the state of being committed.
3.the act of committing, pledging, or engaging oneself.
4.a pledge or promise; obligation: .
5.engagement; involvement: 
I am not sure if this thought was inspired by the conversation I had earlier today or if was because of my commitment to improve my photography skills for the ultimate dream photography job.  Whatever the reason, I am committed to improving my photography skills.  I am not sure what is in store for me down the road photographically, I'll let that up to the One with the plan, but I do know I am COMMITTING to continuing to this blog and improving my skills, so without anymore discussion here's my "just feel like showing off picture":  

One final thought my friends,
"And may your hearts be fully committed to the LORD our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time.” 
1 Kings 8:61

As always thank you for stopping in!  What are you COMMITTED to accomplishing in 2012?

Much love to all,
