Day 720 – A Big Announcement

No picture today, just an announcement!

Today I put in my notice at my day job! I will be a full time wedding and portrait photographer in just two short months! I cannot wait to do this full time! I don’t think it could have happened so soon if it wasn’t for the love and support of my dear husband Bret. He is an amazing business partner, photographer and friend. Ah. : )

What is also very significant about this day is Bret proposed 3 years ago today! When I realized this yesterday, it made me cry. I just felt so overwhelmed with the love of Christ…that He would give me a gift like that…the coolness of the quit date. (If you couldn’t tell by the blog, I’m into dates and days). When I was telling Bret about this fact, I said, “So three years ago, I made a major life decision, tomorrow I make another one.” (this is where I started to cry again!)

Later, I read this passage from Streams in the Desert. It pretty much sealed the deal.

My words…will come true at their proper time. Luke 1:20
What the Lord has said…will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

The Lord is sure to accomplish those things
A loving heart has waited long to see;
Those words will be fulfilled to which she clings,
Because her God has promised faithfully;
And, knowing Him, she ne’er can doubt His Word;
He speaks and it is done. The mighty Lord!
The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
O burdened heart, rest ever in His care;
In quietness beneath his shadowing wings
Await the answer to your longing prayer.
When you have “cast your cars,” the heart then sings,
The Lord is sure to accomplish those things.
The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
O tired heart, believe and wait and pray;
Peacefully, the evening chime still rings,
Though cloud and rain and storm have filled the day.
Faith pierces through the mist of doubt that bars
The coming night sometimes, and finds the stars.
The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
O trusting heart, the Lord to you has told;
Let Faith and Hope arise, and lift their wings,
To soar toward the sunrise clouds of gold;
The doorways of the rosy dawn swing wide,
Revealing joys the darkness of night did hide.

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
