how much money I give to charity,
or how often I attend church.
Are those things--church, giving, and the Word--important to my relationship with Christ? Most definitely. But those things are not the means to measure my faith.
Rather, my faith is built upon redemption and grace.
I am made in His image. He knew me before I was born, and has a plan for me. He loves me for who I am.
It's not about the things I do or don't do. It's about what He did for me.
About the Edits:
Wow - I'm really off this week!! Obviously, I had to up the exposure on both of my SOOCs - thank goodness for RAW! And here are the details of the specific edits:
On the Bible - I did a tilt and crop, ctrl-j/adjusted to overlay, and placed Kristy's Aging Estate texture/soft light 100%
On the Hands - I warmed up WB, ran CoffeeShop's perfect portrait, using color pop, brighten, urban grit on coins, skin smoother, and vignette
