They Call Me Sarah

Aubrey and Josh Wedding

“They call me Sarah”


She’s a quiet passionate young lady forging through this thing we call life.

She’s beautiful in every way.  She loves.  She hurts.  She’s strong.

Stronger than she thinks.

I was so blessed to have this young lady enter into my life several years ago.  She tagged along on one of my Senior shoots.  When she first appeared through the lens of my camera she was breathtaking.  Since that time she’s been my photography student, model, friend and assistant at several weddings.  I am amazed by her;  in part because she is so unaware of the beauty and the depth that lies within her being.  At times pondering if she realizes just how lovely her story is becoming….

I pray.  I watch.  I see.  What God has in store for her is amazingly powerful.

My dearest Sarah.  They call you Sarah.  He calls you beloved, child of the KING, daughter.

Desiring to hug her tightly and tell her all is well I often sit and pray for her.  In my mind’s eye she is a wild flower just beginning to bloom.  And in that time when her pedals open fully to the Son, she will be all He has called her to be.  You are part of my heart sweet girl.


Friendship…what a beautiful word.  It evokes warm fuzzy feelings, laughter, sadness, and gratefulness in my heart.

I have friends who are hurting.  And I hurt with them.  I have friends who are struggling and I struggle with them.  I have friends wrestling the darkness of Satan wanting his way in their lives and I wrestle with them.  As I pray and plead for victory in the heavenlies for these sweet friends I look to the ONE who gives us all hope.  The only One who is Hope.  The One who gave the ultimate sacrifice, his life.

As Solomon writes in Ecclesiastes:  “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:  If one falls down, his friend can help him up, But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!  Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.  But how can one keep warm alone?  Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecc 4:9-12

Aren’t you glad you have those “once in a lifetime”, “always got your back”, “love you anyway” kind of friends?  Let them know.

I am so thankful to have those kinds of friends in my life.
