IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #697 – ON THE RIGHT PATH!

14MHS TRACK_1853

I have been making  sports portraits around  West Texas for the past 20+ years. It has been a wonderful blessing. We have coaches at some of the schools that we made their sports portrait when they were in jr high.

But, I have to admit to becoming a little tired of making portraits of kids holding every kind of: football, basketball,baseball,volleyball, softball or golf ball. Yesterday the first young lady out for track photos came bounding up excitedly showing off her new tattoo.

It was refreshing to see a girl with Jeremiah 29:11 imprinted on her shoulder. I was quickly reminded that I sometimes wander off my path and plan. I become bored with the way I look at things. She refreshed my vision and allowed me to see something different than just another student holding a piece of sports paraphernalia.

She understood Who planned her path and helped put me back on mine.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
