God is SO Good!

What can I say? I am blessed in abundance! I love my family, I love my church, I love my life! No, I'm not rich with all my desires catered to. That couldn't be further from the truth. But I am alive and I have joy. There is nothing like it. There are times that I'm down and I get on myself for my failures, but I can't stay down for long. As I look around God is taking care of me, reminding me that He is always there. I have no worries for the future. "Things" will work out.

I'm still doing photography (www.kaspinn.com) so if you need holiday pictures (or any type of pictures really), you know who to contact/send your friends to. :) I'm doing free shoots on Thursdays from now until Thanksgiving.

Last week I coordinated a media conference. Can you say nervewracking? lol With only one person officially registered and the conference in four days, I didn't know if we would end up having to cancel it. I'm so glad we didn't! People actually showed up! And they learned stuff! My presenters were amazing!! Todd Mace, Southern Union Conference Information Systems Director, Dale Holness, Broward County Commissioner for District 9, Collin Williams, award-winning producer and owner of Studio 1080, Inc., Marie Compas-Polo, CEO of Joshua Tree Marketing, Cynthia Roby, freelance writer and consultant and owner of Bluestocking, Inc., Karl Pinnock, owner/photographer/videographer for Kaspinn Productions, Andrew Nugent, Associate Pastor for Lauderhill Seventh-day Adventist Church, Dave Adden, EasyWorship Guru, myself and friend/photographer Gerard Rowe. Whew! It was a grand success in my estimation, and a first for the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in South Florida! I'm looking forward to doing it again but for now I'm already on to my next project...a conference for entrepreneurs. Interested?

Scary and Disgusting Stuff

I went to the gym this morning. Nothing too out of the ordinary about that. Didn't feel like it but went anyway. When Shelby and I came back we saw muddy footprints outside our front door. People used to use our backyard as a thoroughfare so I wasn't entirely surprised about it starting up again. Ran some errands throughout the day and when we all got home around 6:30 P.M. our newest neighbor who lives right beside us, met us in our driveway. Apparently they were robbed. Same muddy footprints on their back patio as in front of our house. Times are hard, yes, but do people have to be so disgustingly greedy/selfish/self-centered?

It was a long week

Busy is good, I suppose. We spent most of the week getting footage to put into a promo video for Sid's school. It took a lot more out of us than I initially thought, but then again, isn't that how most things are. You never realize the true scope until it's too late to back out. lol The good thing is, after going to bed at 5:45 am on Saturday morning and then waking at 7:00 am, the video came out ok after all and by 10:30 am of the same day the viewing at the Education Day Rally was over. The Director admitted to crying and the others who I spoke to said they liked it. That made it worth it. Plus, it was good experience. I even got to the voiceover! :D

One day this week we hope to make it to the beach for the sunrise. (Yeah, right!) No, for real - we will. Tomorrow. If the pix come out good then I'll post a couple. The purpose it not to catch the sunrise itself but experiment with taking pix in that light. The sun rises relatively fast so the window of opportunity is short which adds to the excitement of trying to get good pix. We'll see how it goes.

WID

I am so exhausted! Did a shoot today for a local dentist who was doing free work for the day for "Women In Distress." We got to his office at 9 am and I didn't leave until 3 pm. One lady had 10 extractions. Yes, 10 in one day! Another lady had a mouth full of golds and couldn't get a job and was totally transformed with their removal. It was a wonderful experience. Hubby did video and I took stills. Dr. Ken Ross is one of the seven founding members of Project 31 - an organization of dentists that want to give back to their communities. They set up all kinds of 'missions', days that they do pro bono work. Great concept. Hopefully other doctors and service providers will catch the fever and do the same.
