tiny, momentous

This is Sparky.
Sparky is a photographer. He's been taking pictures for a long while now, but he is only just able to hold our massive camera steady and look through the viewfinder the right way, making it possible for him to be creative. Below are a few photos he took yesterday evening.
Oh, the momentous capacity encased in tiny bodies.

I have learned that children are capable in ways that many adults might not believe.

Our unfeigned confidence in them is the first step. From there we must provide opportunities and patient guidance. And the rest happens naturally, in the Lord's time.

I just stumbled across your blog. I'm brand new to blogging!

Photography is a new passion of mine, so it's great to find your blog.

I love the pictures Sparky took. Children are only limited by the limits we set. If we tell them they can touch the stars, they will.

Can't wait to read the rest of your blog... :o)

He is quite amazing!

And yup, I've dyed my hair brown, its natural hue.

I'm not sure what I think yet.

It makes me feel edgy, whatever that means. :)

Sparky,
Grandma is so proud of you. You've got a good eye and a steady hand. Keep it up and you'll pay your way through college, LOL.
