Photography 101 – Day 16: Treasure & Close-up

Our Photo101 theme for today is – get close to a treasure. A treasure is person, purpose or possession greatly valued or highly prized. I’ve heard it said that a man’s checkbook will point to where his heart is, his treasure. Our treasure can also be found by looking through our day planner or calendar. If you are like me, you love many people and cherish many things.

The Bible says –

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21 NIV)

Of all the people and things close to my heart, it is easy for me to identify where my heart is. I love my wife and children a lot. I truly love my friends, my life and my country. But above all things, my heart belongs to My LORD – Jesus Christ. Therein lies my treasure.

Child Of The King – Bill & Gloria Gaither

Once I was clothed in the rags of my sin,
Wretched and poor, lost and lonely within.
But with wondrous compassion, the King of all kings,
In pity and love, took me under His wings.

Oh, yes, oh yes, I’m a child of the King
His royal blood now flows in my veins.
And I who was wretched and poor now can sing
Praise God, praise God, I’m a child of the King.

Now I’m a child with a Heavenly home,
My Holy Father has made me His own.
And I’m cleansed by His blood, and I’m clothed in His love,
And some day I’ll sing with the angels above.

Oh, yes, oh yes, I’m a child of the King
His royal blood now flows in my veins.
And I who was wretched and poor now can sing
Praise God, praise God, I’m a child of the King.

Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
