A few months ago, my friend SL sent me a link to a site she thought I would be interested in. The site is called "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" and is a site where photographers can sign up to volunteer at hospitals. The main focus is to photograph infants who are in critical care, or have passed on.
At first, I was a bit taken a-back. Thoughts of Shalom came flooding back, and I thought - "No. NEVER." But now, I'm thinking that this might be something that I COULD do.
I'm not really sure - but my thought is, is that this could be a really beautiful thing - where I can be the photographer, but also someone who KNOWS what it is to take photos of their passed infant. And I think I would know what kind of photos to take, and be able to share how the strength of the Lord is the only reason I was able to get up the next morning.
So - we shall see. I wonder, though, as I look back on my life the past 3 years - if this is exactly what the Lord has been preparing me for? A ministry that is fine-tuned just for me?
Now - I just need to be brave and take the first step ... and am just not quite sure when that will be.
