This is one of my favorite pictures. I have always loved old doors, the older the better. I wonder who has walked through them and what they were going through. I believe everyone has a story. Some just don't know it yet. When I took this picture, my path was becoming clear to me but I didn't know the amount of faith and trust it would take from me to keep walking my path. My husband hadn't quit his job yet but I was praying he would! What wife prays that her husband gets fired? Probably not too many!
When I came across this door, I tried to close it but it wouldn't shut. So I took the picture anyway. It took me about 2 years to find the right verse for this picture. Usually, the verse comes to me pretty fast but not with this one. When I finally found the verse, I knew it was the perfect one. Then about 2 months later, I realized I couldn't shut the doors to begin with! That made me realize we were doing the right thing and we were on the right path. All the obstacles that we were constantly dealing with were making us stronger and everything was going to work out. We couldn't see what was ahead of us but knew that God was with us.
Same thing is happening today with all of our shows being cancelled. It seems like every week a different one is cancelled. It makes me sad but I know God has a new plan for us. I am planning on having some FB lives pretty soon. I did the first one last week thanks to a good friend that owns a beautiful clothing boutique, Threads. She asked me if I wanted to speak for a few minutes. I thought I was going to be sick. That afternoon before I went on, I couldn't even speak a full sentence for some reason. I couldn't get any thought together let alone speak more than one thought. My head hurt, I wanted to cancel but for me this is how God works and I knew I shouldn't cancel. Previously, a few of my vendor friends said I should do Lives. I'm said NO! I don't like being in front of the camera. Then my friend, Kelly, said you should go Live. I said No again but then something changed and I'm like I need to do it. Everything that has been good for me I've said no the first few times and I have so much fear about it. I believe that is how God works...gets us out of our comfort zone and is constantly pushing us.
Needless to say, we are now building a studio so I should be having my first LIVE show in the next week or so! Thinking about it, makes me very nervous but I'm also very excited. I will update on my FB page: Subtle Verse Photography by Tiffany Kimmet.
