So I just woke up from a nap and had a burger for dinner (it’s Friday evening) and I am halfway sleepwalking through this drowsiness. I say this in case my post is not coherent. I was not expecting to be so tired today, but I said I would have a post for Saturday morning and I fully intend to deliver. It will be an early-to-bed sort of night. My Friday morning post has a little bit about the trip and links to other parts of Film I Shot In Honduras.
Here is the last set of film photos from the trip in June:
I think the mountains in this last photo are really beautiful. I was so blessed by this trip and getting to know members from my church better. It was great to have another opportunity to use film during missionary work. I really like this last set of photos and I am glad that I found them before thinking I was all done with Honduras film.
A couple of weeks ago, I got my first official pack of full-sized business cards from Moo. They are really plain and simple. I took a risk putting a R.W. Emerson quote on the back of them, but the quote has been part of my philosophy for the past two years. It has shaped the way I have defined success in my life after college.
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
And another quote has recently attracted my attention. It was said by Anne Frank. It has been on my mind lately as I have had larger expenses and still wish to tithe, donate, and share with my community.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
Thank you for reading today’s post. I hope you will ponder on these two quotes this weekend.
