'followed...' by Elena Shumilova on 500px As the seasons change for Elena Shumilova and her beautifully portrayed family, I marvel at her ability to work natural light and back light. Her understanding and portrayal of it, made me want to understand how she did it, and try to emulate that for myself. I nabbed her as a social media friend as soon as she went viral and she has been one of my top inspirations ever since.

Friedrich von Amerling (1803-1887) Portrait de la Princesse Marie Franziska von Liechtenstein à l'âge de 2 ans
The Savior tells us we need to become as little children to inherit the kingdom of God. I’ve often wondered what it is about little children Jesus loves most, and I think its their innocence. They are clean slates, seeing the world and others through untarnished eyes. Their hearts are pure, without the baggage of cynicism and self-doubt. I’ve tried to imagine how a child would act upon meeting the Master for the first time.

The Good Shepherd - Jesus Christ
"If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish." Matthew 18:12-14
