My Son Edwards Photography

Isn't this beautiful ? This is my son Edwards photography ( I added the scripture to it )...I am so very proud of him ! He is just 22 yrs old and he has just started doing photography ..I personally think he has a gift ..but that's just me, I'm a little bit biased of course. My son has gone through some really difficult challenges and struggles in his life ..and he is still trying to turn his life around ..I am starting to see ,through his work , what I always knew what was so very deep down inside of his heart..something that has been hard for others to see because of his outward tough exterior and actions...but a Mother knows their children ..and I will never give up on this child of mine. What comes out in his photography tells me all about him is a place in him that has always been so very hard for him to convey ...but I see it ..and I always have maybe others who have had a hard time understanding him will too. Look at these photos ..can you see it ? He has love in his heart is very deep inside ..and he doesn't express it the way most do because of his challenges...but it is starting to find it's way to the surface through his work ...He also loves the outdoors ..he always has been and always will be my little jungle boy...where was Edward when all the other kids were playing basketball or watching TV he was up inside of trees ..always always in the trees ..or digging in the dirt...or hiking in some woods ...he is a total nature boy ..his dream is to live in a handmade cabin in the wilderness in the forest somewhere and live off the land ...he's a pioneer in the wrong place and time ..but he can live his dream through his beautiful art ..and he can show the world he has love and knows beauty ...finally through his camera... I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do ....

Getting ready for St Paul's UCC Sat Sept 17th !

Your mercy,O Lord ,is in the heavens
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds ...
How precious is Your loving kindness, O God !
I will put my trust in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36:5-7

Morning Glories,
It's not really morning ..but I just love saying that ! I'm a little behind in getting my blog done this month ... Ive had the daunting task of having to get my taxes done for this quarter ..and get ready for this latest show ..also I had a little set back with my joints's the weather change happens every time ... but I'm feeling much better and I'm ready to go again ! Im also very excited about a few prospects I have for "consignment shops" to sell some of my work in during the winter soon as I am set up inside of a shop all will be the first to know! I'm going to keep it short this time and just show some pics of the new things I will be selling at this show ... but before I do ..Just a little moment to remember all those who were affected by 9-11-01 ..I can't  believe it's been 10 years already ..where does the time go ? May God Bless all those who died on 9-11 and their loved ones ..and God Bless America!
Also a great big Happy Birthday to my son Edward ..It's hard to believe he is actually turning 22 this year ! My first born .. I love you honey !
I hope you come and see me at the St Paul's United Church of Christ ..this Saturday Sept 17th  from 9- 3 !
Blessings & Peace,

                       Happy 22nd  Birthday Edward 9-14-89
                  This was a lamp ..but I removed the lamp parts 
and I'm just going to sell it as a statue ..I think it's better that way !
