I'm headed out!

The suitcase is laid out and packed...the flight details all printed off...my camera gear all packed...a few snacks ready for the week...much prayer in preparation...

and I am finally headed to the Institute of Photographic Studies for their Prizewinning Photography course! Something I have dreamed about for years, but it never worked with our family schedule until now.

Now!!! As in -- this week!

My blog will probably be pretty quiet while I am gone, (unless you can twist Rachel's arm to do a guest post....) so browse the archives and wait for an update upon my return! [grin]

If you think of me, I would appreciate prayer: for wisdom in each situation I encounter, understanding to absorb all that is taught, and most of all that Christ's name will be glorified. Blessings to you all!


"Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place."
II Corinthians 2:14
