“The Unmaking” – A Lyric Photoshoot

Hello!

Time flies! With school started back up, my blogging schedule is a bit more on the back burner. I’m still keeping my plan to post on Thursdays, but we’ll see where the school year takes us… 😉

For this Thursday, I am excited to show you a photoshoot I got of Julie. I got this photoshoot to go with the song, “The Unmaking” by Nichole Nordeman. I really like this song, and I love the lyrics.

I’ve included the YouTube lyric video in this post so you can play the song while you look at the photos and read the lyrics along with them. Enjoy!

This is where the walls gave way.

This is demolition day.

DSCN7603PSedit

All the debris and all this dust;

What is left of what once was,

Sorting through what goes and what should stay.

DSCN7604PSedit

Every stone I laid for you.

As if you had asked me to.

DSCN7609PSedit

A monument to holy things,

Empty talk and circlings.

Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do?

DSCN7611PSedit

What happens now,

When all I’ve made is torn down?

DSCN7613PSedit

What happens next

When all of You is All that’s left?

DSCN7615PSedit

This is the unmaking,

Beauty in the breaking.

Had to lose myself to find out who You are.

DSCN7616PSedit

Before each beginning,

There must be an ending.

Sitting in the rubble, I can see the stars.

DSCN7618PSedit

This is the unmaking.

This is the unmaking.

The longer and the tighter that we hold

Only makes it harder to let go.

DSCN7627PSedit

But love will not stay locked inside,

A steeple or a tower high:

DSCN7632PSedit

Only when we’re broken are we whole.

DSCN7636PSedit

What happens now,

When all I’ve made is torn down?

DSCN7633PSedit

This is the unmaking,

Beauty in the breaking.

Had to lose myself to find out who You are.

DSCN7638PSedit

Before each beginning,

There must be an ending.

Sitting in the rubble, I can see the stars.

DSCN7620PSedit

This is the unmaking.

This is the unmaking.

 

DSCN7623PSedit

I’ll gather the same stones where

DSCN7622PSedit

everything came crashing down.

I’ll build You an altar there, on the same ground.

DSCN7624PSedit2.jpg

‘Cause what stood before

      Was never Yours. 

 

DSCN7643PSedit

This is the unmaking,

Beauty in the breaking.

Had to lose myself to find out who You are.

DSCN7646PSedit

Before each beginning,

There must be an ending.

DSCN7653PSedit

Sitting in the rubble, I can see the stars.

This is the unmaking.

DSCN7650PSedit

This is the unmaking.

This is the unmaking.

DSCN7648PSedit

Had to lose myself to find out who You are.

Christmas Pictures from Days of Old. Or, Well, Last Year.

Merry Christmas!

Today I want to show you some Christmas pictures I took of my dolls about a year ago! Some of these are not good quality (because I didn’t think they’d be for a blog, and I’m sure my photography’s improved since then, too 🙂 ), but I hope you will enjoy them anyways!

These first three pictures are from when I was helping my mom decorate our Huge Christmas tree (we don’t have it anymore, though), and I brought Grace along!

“My hat! I dropped my hat! All the way down there!”

The next few are my dolls’ (minus Caroline; I got her that Christmas) and their Christmas tree. I don’t know where the tree is this year, since we moved, but perhaps it will show up eventually.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these old Christmas photos!

Do you think my photography’s improved since I first started blogging/since last year? Do your dolls have a Christmas tree?

Caption It! #2

I think it’s about time I do my second caption it!

The rules are simple:

  • Take a look at the photo
  • Comment below with what you think the doll(s)/pets are saying/thinking
  • In about a week, I can decide on a few of my favorites, and then you all get to vote!

Are you ready?
