"deeper" thoughts

so, i admit, my mind hasnt been completely on the girls today. in fact, it has been tending to wander quite a bit. what on? well ,firstly on what i have been reading in the Bible this week- my goal was to start and finish the Book of Judges-- not only was i so into it that i finished it, but i have also finished the book of Ruth and have started on and am continuing through the book of I Samuel. ever since , probably about 3 or 4 yrs ago, Grant gave me the read-the-Bible-through-in-a-yr bible for Christmas, it has always been a "new years resolution" to read through it in , well, a year! however, i have always viewed it as a "race against time" or , sometimes, if i m really tired, a chore that i "need to do". but this yr, or rather , this summer, has been VASTLY different , and praise the Lord for it! instead of having a far off goal alone, ive been trying to set reasonable goals for each week , and then, instead of just reading one chapter, im trying to read 2 + depending on if my eyes will still work or not (aka how sleepy i am). anyways, thats been one major praise/joyful thought. and im not saying this so people can go "oh how wonderful and religious mercy is" or any of that junk-- im not! i want to be deeply rooted in Him , but i feel as if im just moving one speck of dirt from the top of the ground of getting to know the Lord-- and its definitely not me doing it! Im telling you this so u can REJOICE IN THE LORD with me for this great answer to prayer! so yeah, just wanted to let yall know i do have my priorities straight on this :)


another thought bothering me is the ever constant lack of money i have.. my goal (aside from L.W. someday being a wife and mom) : to study and learn and become a really great photographer. to do that, i really do need a great camera. i have a pretty good camera. but not the camera of my dreams (of the moment): the canon digital slr EOS 30D .. ahahahhahaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh i went to Circuit City the other day (stuff w. my laptop) and stopped by the camera department and (almost) literally drooled over it. the guy working at the time (his name was kyle, i believe) was kind enough to let me play w. an "open box" one-- it had a dent in the side, (a literally miniscule dent) so instead of being $1500 , it was reduced to $1200.. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh *tries not to covet* for those of u utterly confused by why the monkey i would EVER want to spend THAT MUCH MONEY on "just a camera" here is the pic of it (courtesy of the internet):

oh and, that price..i believe that is EXCLUDING the lens, though that i just sort of heard, havent researched, but am praying is false(lol).

and now, i am about to fall over b.c i am quite tired and still have some things left to do before i can crash into bed, so i guess other deep thoughts will have to follow tomorrow or the next time i am on here. and ill also try to tell you my reasons why i want so much to be a "great photographer". and ill also try to put as many of my jamestown pics up as possible. but that last one is iffy. night!

B.c He Lives and Reigns

I do understand why you'd want that camera so badly. It's pretty killer! But consider it a goal for the future and as long as photography remains a strong interest, owning that camera will eventually become a reality. You may want to look around at garage sales and pawn shops for older yet still very valuable cameras. Digital is great but there's nothing like processing your own film in a dark room. It's half the fun!

Why do you want the 30D when you could get the 40D or the 50D? I bought the Canon 40D body for $700 from a man in Ga. I love my Canon 40D! You take really good pictures.
