Rebekah asked me to take her senior pictures.
I don't do that picture-taking business, for money, for people. I don't do let's-meet-at-6-and-hope-the-sun-is-just-right, and I really stink at flash photography and indoor lighting and fake poses. I'm more of a hey-I-have-the-camera-with-me, look at that dappled light, kids, get out of the van, quick! kind of gal.
For some reason, though, when Rebekah asked, my mouth said yes, sure, I'd love to.
It's just that Rebekah likes Michael Buble and Jesus and writing, so I like Rebekah. She's my type of gal and so if she wants me to take her senior pictures and if God will stop the sun in the sky just right, and if all the pictures can be taken outdoors…
…yes, sure, I'd love to.
As with most worries, I didn't need to worry. God blessed us with not only a beautiful 17-year-old whose inner beauty shows up in her outer beauty, but He also blessed us by holding the sun in the sky just right.
