A few weeks ago I went to the park to take some pictures for the sole purpose of redoing my blog. I also got completely caught in the rain! It was fun. And wet. My camera got a little moist and I was worried, but it was fine. And, I was in such a hurry to get it in the car I didn't get any pictures of drenched Carolynn, only of sunshine Carolynn. Hah.

I am wearing a dress from Ross, Dress for Less, and a handmade "pineapple" crochet shawl, made by my friend Paula from back in my college days. (Where have you gone to, Paula? I can't find you on facebook anymore)

Anyway, I finished my circle rainbow scarf for winter/fall, and started on reconstructing this little black dress for the blog--and am eagerly awaiting the marriage of my best friend this weekend!

I shot these pictures in manual also. Manual, I've found, is annoying because I tend to move around when doing self-photography, and that makes pictures a bit blurry.

Anyway, other then getting ready for my friends wedding and the beautiful fall weather, I have been reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan and trying to pray daily. I don't want to be a lukewarm Christian---I want to be sold out to Christ. But so often I run away from him, because its hard and I'm lazy and afraid. I need to learn the value of hard work, of pursuing God with all my heart every day, instead of just ignoring him and thinking I'll do it tomorrow. Its frustrating. By Christ alone, I will get there. If I let myself get in the way, I won't. I always appreciate prayers--for God to be my center, that I will trust in Him alone, and be a good steward of all he has given me.

That's a very beautiful dress!! And I can't imagine trying to do SELF photography and in manual mode, too! And lukewarm faith is a danger than I also want to avoid at all costs.
