Consider the Lilies

Written by Shannon Leigh

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:25-34

Goodbye Old Friend

Written by Shannon Leigh

Last week I had to buy a new Macbook Pro. Wah Wah...
We have spent quite a bit of money on the old one in the last few months and it was time to lay it to rest.

It was sad day. That sweet little computer has been good to me and my business.
We have spent a LOT of time together over the last few years. It has seen me through many dessert Thursdays, the birth of a child, and countless weddings and photo sessions.

The new one is spiffy and shiny and wonderful but I think I will always miss my first love.
It's kind of like my Pentax k-1000, my first film camera, nothing can ever replace it completely.IMG_9490

R.I.P. First MBP. You lived a good life.

Ain't too Proud Monday (Wednesday Addition)

Written by Shannon Leigh

So I have been MIA lately.
Want to know why?
DID you SEE that?

Yep, the bottom half of my face blew up like a water balloon.

It all started 2 Thursdays ago.
My chin randomly started hurting but I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary when I checked it out. Not even a bump.
By Friday night my chin had a huge elongated bump on it and it hurt like the dickens.
We thought it was some kind of bug bite.

I would have gone to the doctor but I was shooting a wedding out of town on Saturday.
It was continually getting larger and more painful.

On Sunday I headed straight to convenient care and it was diagnosed as some kind of infection. Yikes.
She gave me an antibiotic and sent me on my way.

Then it just got WORSE.
I was in a lot of pain and the swelling was all the way down to my chest.
I couldn't sleep or get comfortable. It was actually really horrible.
I had to go back to convenient care (stupid holiday weekend).
They doubled my antibiotic and gave me a HUGE shot in the bum, which still hurts mind you. They also gave me a heaping dose of Vicodin.

By Wednesday I went to see my primary care doc because it JUST wasn't getting better and now I was throwing up because I was so nauseous from the Vicodin and antibiotic.

Well they ended up having to LANCE it.
Yes, like cut it open and drain it.
And yes it was just as horrible as it sounds.

I have been on the mend since then but still haven't caught up on all the work I fell behind on while I was down for the count.
I still have a small bump on my chin but it doesn't hurt.
I see the doctor tomorrow, hopefully he'll have some answers for me.

Praise the Lord for my parents and in-laws for helping us out.
I don't think I could have done it without them!

Oh and PS- my computer is out of commission as of tonight. The screen won't turn on(Iam currently on Matt's computer to answer emails).
AWESOME, JUST what I need!
