Taking Time to CREATE Good
Fall is crazy busy for me. October is probably the most popular month of the year for weddings, and of course, families always need photos in time for their holiday cards. Things have been stressful.
Add in the bad news going on around our world lately, and I’ve been finding myself just praying that there could be more good. Please, we could use more good.
Then, I had an idea … what if I could CREATE some good? It may seem small, but I started thinking of ways I could give back to others.
I started with a little salon gift card giveaway … then some discounted mini sessions … and then $400 off wedding packages (my biggest sale EVER). I hope to keep this going, so who knows what I’ll do before Thanksgiving rolls around.
The coolest part of all this is that I’m getting more back than I could ever give away. The satisfaction of being able to give someone a gift is so amazing. That’s probably one of the reasons I’m a photographer – I get to give people a gift they cannot give themselves. OK, I know they could take a selfie these days, but it’s just not the same!
As we head into the holidays, I hope you’ll take time to reflect on the amazing gifts you have to offer the world. If you’re like me and find yourself stressed out and struggling to find some good in life, take time to CREATE some good. We all have it in us to make a difference – you never know how you can change someone’s day!
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just in fact as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
