We have about three (3) more months till December 31st, 2008. As we look back at my journey in photography, My wife and I are indeed grateful to God for his kindness, and for wonderful mentors he has surrounded us with. He has blessed us and we are extremely grateful.
I just want to encourage some of my blog readers today to always follow your heart and be patient in finding God’s purpose for us. And also remembering to be thankful, because it is only by his grace that we can accomplish our dreams.
Ever since I introduce TSP, I pray to God everyday for continuous direction and guidance in everything I set forth. Proverbs 3: 5-6.
I will be blogging about a special couple tomorrow who are deeply in Love.
