I thought I would have a little fun with the Christmas lights and taking pictures, so I stood across the room and took these three pictures. All the settings were the same - ISO, shutter speed, F. - all identical. I simply changed the manual focus to get these three different looks.

They aren't good pictures and I wasn't planning on posting them, but I was struck by this simple thought: my focus affects how I view things. And I am not talking about photography here.

We included this verse in our wedding invitations and it has continued to be a special verse to me:
For this is God, 
Our God forever and ever,
He will be our guide,
Even unto death.
Psalm 48:14

He is my guide.
He should be my focus.

Merry Christmas, Sweet Jessica!

That is the absolute BEST focus.

With all the business of this time of year, it is easy to lose focus, especially in the couple days before Christmas, when I get so, so busy. I have to keep reminding myself that Jesus is to be my focus!!
