May my life be a testimony
To who I am in You, to who You are in me.

Lord Jesus, may the ones I touch be touched by You,
Oh, may my life be a testimony.

May my life be a tribute to Your name,
May I seek first Your smile, not men's applause and fame,

Lord Jesus, if it means for You I suffer pain,
May I not fail to be a tribute to Your name.

May Our lives be a symphony of praise,
A song of hope and joy that fills our nights and days.

Oh, grant that we may never cease to always raise,
Oh, Lord to You a joyful symphony of praise.

May our lives be a mirror of Your grace,
Reflecting love that goes beyond all time and space,

Lord Jesus, may men see not us, but Your dear face,
Oh, may our lives be a mirror of Your grace.

May our lives be a testimony
To who we are in You, to who You are in us.

Lord Jesus, may the ones we touch be touched by You,
Oh, may our lives be a mirror, Lord, of You.

Can you see the reflection of their faces in their rings!?!?! So beautiful!

As a fellow *aspiring* photographer, you are a blessing to me because I can see your commitment to godliness and virtue rather than self-glorification as a woman and photographer.

I love your photography Bethany and I am so blessed by the fact that you seek to glorify the LORD by blessing others through your talents.

God bless you!

Amazing photography! How long have you been doing weddings? Your photographs are on par with some of the top pros in wedding photography. Of course God gets the glory for your work, but you've definitely put to good use the talents he's given you.
