Merry Christmas!!!...

 (this one is blurry, but I still kinda like it =) 

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given. And the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Councillor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." -Isaiah 9:6

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

I hope you all had a great day, and made some amazing memories. I know I did. =) 

God bless you all!!

Love, Hannah 

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men.

You Know Better Than I

"I thought I did what's right
I thought I had the answers
I thought I chose the surest road
But that road brought me here

So I put up a fight
And told you how to help me
Now just when I have given up
The truth is coming clear

You know better than I 
You know the way 
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I

If this has been a test
I cannot see the reason
But maybe knowing I don't know
Is part of getting through

I try to do what's best
And faith has made it easy
To see the best thing I can do
Is put my trust in You

For You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I

I saw one cloud and thought it was a sky
I saw a bird and thought that I could follow
But it was You who taught that bird to fly
If I let You reach me, will You teach me?

For You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
I'll take what answers You supply
You know better than I"

YouTube isn't wanting to work right now or I would have put up a video of this song. But look it up! It's called Better Than I, and both David Campbell or Joy Williams do it really good. This has honestly become one of my favorite songs EVER, and I'm pretty sure you'll love it too. =) 

Let me know what ya think!...

to me they're worth more than a thousand words...

This ^^ pretty much completely and totally sums up why I love photography so much. =) 

Wow... I feel like I haven't been on here in forever! Why? Reason #1: We live in the country. We have satellite internet. Need I continue? ;) But, it is better than nothing so, yes, grateful. (is it okay to be slightly annoyed as well...?) Anyways, reason #2: I'm lazy. Yep. Until last week, I hadn't picked up my camera in almost a month. A MONTH!!!! Yeah, I totally love taking pictures... but I just wasn't feeling it. Hopefully that's past? lol I don't know... BUT! I have been better this past week. The majority of pictures go on our family blog though. Which if you want, you can check out here. Feel free to follow or comment.  =)  Okay well moving on! I absolutely cannot believe that Christmas is NEXT Sunday. Seriously, it seems like we just had Christmas. And I know I probably say that every year... but I really mean it this time! I,e,... I still remember what I wore and the first present I opened last year. Yes, I'm serious. See, seems like yesterday. Nonetheless, I'm excited. Not in a -jump-up-and-down-and-squeal- kind of way, but in a -the-new-year-is-almost-here-and-I'm-about-to-turn-EIGHTEEN!!-and-I-feel-like-my-life-is-about-to-get-crazier-and-I-can't-wait- kind of excited. Does that make sense? Maybe I'm just sentimental or something... but it's also kinda sad. Like when i think that this is the last year I'll ever be 17, and that all these great times and epic moments of 2011 will just be distant memories... it's bittersweet. Or maybe it's the fact that it's 1a.m. and I'm really not fully awake right now? That is VERY possible. hehe.  Well, enough with that. I find myself rambling on waaaaay too much these days. ;) So ending this post with some pictures of my lovely family... =)

God bless you all... =)
