The Peace of God

10 Jan

A Life to Live

Melody Hendrix

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7
“Jesus, I declare you as my Lord, and with you I find calm and peace. Today… this moment… I choose to look to you, instead of focusing on the people and problems that hound me. Because I am your child, you will lift my heart, tilt my head heavenward, and help me to rise above every difficulty. ”   Tricia Goyer
I pray that the love of God and the Peace that surpasses all understanding fill your heart and mind today.

The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are….
The second greatest is being happy with what you find…..

Let your light shine so brightly that others can see their way out of the dark.

Sacred Geometry

A Life to Live

Melody Hendrix

The chambered Nautilus Shell (this one cut in half) has an ancient science in its design called the Golden ratio or golden mean spiral. You see this in many gorgeous forms of art and nature. The eye is drawn to its mesmerizing lure. Geometry is sacred. It is sacred because God used beautiful mathematics in creating the world, our universe and everything in it.
Albert Einstein wrote “The more I study science, the more I believe in God”.

What a beautiful world we live in. We all have that in common. Natural beauty is everywhere, but sometimes we are not connected until we see a picture, taken just right, that makes it really come into focus and be admired. My passion is to make a connection between the lens and your soul. Photography is my passion.
My photography passion began when my Father handed me his old Ricohflex box camera when I was 12.  It was love at first sight. I still have it. My hand was never empty of a camera since.

I am a native Floridian. I am so lucky to call it home. I was born in Orlando BF (before Disney). My family moved to the Winter Park area when I was very young. Central Florida was so simple and quaint at that time. I wandered the streets barefoot with my friends, never worrying that something bad could ever happen. My Mom used to pick the sand-spurs out of my feet. I still go barefoot. It grounds me to earth and connects me to nature.
I have extensively explored Florida and its diverse beauty. So much to see and so little time. I would love for you to join me in my travels through the images I have taken. I wish you could hear the sounds, smell the fragrance and feel the breath of it. But for now we must be content with exploring with our eyes and only imagine the rest.
Now for Melody’s first post.
