Changing Lives

It's amazing what a week can do to you, it's amazing what 3 hours can do to you. I went to Williamsburg, Kentucky this past week and came back a different person. We went for MFuge/Mission Fuge. It was with the church youth group I attend. We were going to help out and witness to the people that live there.
When I went there I thought everything in my life was as close to perfect as it could get. I thought I would just go there and worship God and be happy. Nope, not at all.
I went there and was convicted. I was torn apart. I was guilty. I was positive I was doing my best to witness to others, I was positive I was knowing where my life was going but after the Worship Services I wasn't anymore.
The last worship service, the pastor said stand up and say the peoples names that you want to witness to, out loud. I knew I had to, I knew God wanted me to, I knew I had to be obedient. I stood up in front of all 500 people and said my friends names.
In an odd sense it felt amazing to be convicted and amazing to be guilty; I had the guts to say those names, I can't wait to change lives.

When I worship God I feel like I don't need anything else, I feel like I'm whole, I feel love, I am loved and whole. God sent His only son because I sinned; He gave His one love up to be murdered on a cross but yet He still loves me. How can I not worship that?
If anyone has any questions you can comment here, facebook me or send me an e-mail at the.courtneylee@gmail.com

Here are some pictures I took, I didn't take many.

i guess it's been a while

So much to say for such a long time's absence!

Let's start with me recommending the MacBook Pro. I just bought one and I'm very satisfied with it! Nothing wrong so far :p I got the 13", if you are planning on doing photo-editing you should get a bigger size (15" or 17"). Excellent computer!

Happy 4th of July everyone! I went to church this morning; they had a huge flag up and the whole shabang, it was awesome. It was packed with worship and great music.
The pastor said something that popped out to me. The pastor just got back from Israel on a mission trip; he was saying how he sat in Israel and wept because he was were everything had happened, where Jesus died on the cross, where Noah traveled on the arc he created with his bare hands, etc. But he noticed that you don't have to be in Israel to be where God is and where everything happened; you don't have to travel to Israel to minister to others, you can stay at home and be just as important. Let that be encouragement for you, it encouraged me!

Here's my photos:

I must click this button!

"What's so great about taking a picture and photography? It's just clicking a button; I must click this button! (trying to imitate a photographer)."
^ quote from my little 11 year old brother. I guess he just doesn't appreciate art. I guess you could look at photography from that point of view or you could look at it like I do. I look at it as a unique creation; each creation is different. It's an art that takes talent and creativity. Which way will you look at it?
Take a look at my flickr page and tweets! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

My family and i like a good movie that you can laugh to and make fun of; we found the perfect movie that fits that description too well. It's called "Gentlemen Broncos". If you liked the movies "Napoleon Dynamite" or "Nacho Libre" you will probably like this movie. We watched this movie not knowing much about it and never hearing anything about it so the things we witnessed were a great surprise.
Here's the plot:
Gentlemen Broncos tells the story of a home schooled teenage outcast and aspiring fantasy writer. He attends a writing workshop to show off his work but his idea, Yeast Lords - The Bronco Years, is plagiarized by acclaimed novelist Ronald Chevalier, who has turned desperate for ideas after his publisher rejects his latest novel and informs him that they intend to drop him entirely.

On top of that if you are looking for some acoustic music to listen to check out "City and Colour".

Here's some new pictures!

This weeks scoop of photography

I made another attempt at a Cornelia Heideger picture; this one turned out much better. I still have a wide span of room for improvement though.

I got new shoes and had a craving for photography at the time so....

This may be weird or something you would never think of but wouldn't it be awesome if we could capture, record, or take a picture of smell? I'm always wanting to capture sites and save things. That's the reason I love photography so much, I get to capture and share so many different scenes while being creative.
I bet back when there weren't cameras people wished they could capture movement or even a simple stance. Now I'm saying the same thing but about smell. Anything can happen in the future.

my sister has a new blog. she is starting it out; it's called Judging By The Cover. Check it out -->> http://www.carlybrinker.blogspot.com/

I tried to attempt a Cornelia Hediger photo but it didn't work out the best.

Here is her's.

If you think you're at a strangers blog you aren't! I've been playing around with the layout and colors of my blog.

Drinking coffee on the porch. All is good :)


My sister needed me for her creative writing class, how humiliating is this but how sweet is this? It's an owl mask she made. Pretty sweet?

These are a few of my drawings! I have always liked to sketch so, here!
It's been so long since I have last posted! I'm sorry! I think I am going to try doing one post at every end of the week so keep staying tuned!

April 12, 2010 I wrote: Jesus prayed to God the night before he was crucified. Think about this: Jesus was going to die. Yup, it's a terrible thing but the thing He was probably more afraid of was having all of the sin on Him. He was weighed down from the billions and billions of peoples guilt and sin. I can't even comprehend that. Jesus was sweating blood because of this weight, literally.

Yesterday all I did was take pictures.





Random Thoughts anyone?

April 5, 2010 I wrote:
God made people for his enjoyment; so why did He make flowers? Why did He make mountains? Maybe to prove He is real, to let people know He is here.

It's raining. I love listening to the birds sing and play in the water. It's almost as if God is singing and calling us by name. I love listengin to water droplets hit the ground and cars splash the water into the grass.
Day's like this, it seems as though God is saying, "I'm here with you, by your side even on a cloudy day like this."
When the wind blows I hear charms hitting each other. The peaceful noise of happiness and joy; true joy.
