Liz Stammel Photography
Liz is a photographer, a wonderful photographer. Liz is also a SAHM who makes extra money by watching other peoples kids (like mine). That is not always an easy job. On one particular not so good day she had forgot she had a photo shoot scheduled for after dinner. It was the last thing she felt like doing. Even though she was tired, she met her friend who is pregnant for the photo shoot at a nearby beach. This beach had very special meaning to her friend. It was the beach that her husband proposed on. It was the beach she got married on and now it is the beach she is having her pregnancy photos taken on. Somehow, at each special occasion Liz's friend found a starfish on the beach. I will be the first to tell you that they are not always easy to find. I have tried finding a starfish myself on many occasions and still to this day have never found a starfish dead or alive on a beach! Well, while doing the photo shoot amazingly Liz and her friend found another starfish. The starfish symbolized to Liz that even though she was tired, even though she really didn't want to be away from her family, God provided a small simple gift. A star fish.
What are you thankful for today?
Have you ever had a "star fish" experience?
