Todd Roeth

Love this photographer

-

I believe I sent out a link earlier about his collection that was on exhibit in Ventura. He has a super neat style, two things I really like about him is that he uses a lot of ‘square format’ and he centers the flash in his subjects eyes (for the most part).

-

Hard to narrow down, but I think my top three are: ‘The Morning Benders‘, ‘Esmé Patterson‘ and ‘2Faced‘.

:: the TENSION is good ::

We don’t lead from

the safety of the fringe,

We take up residence

in the fray.

Where change is happening,

Where change is necessary.

There we find ourselves

in a unique tug-of-war

between what was,

what is, and what could be.

We are faced with

the reality that we are

the catalyst in the moment.

A tension ensues between

our ambitions and fears.

We are tempted

to bail on our goals

but discover

that under pressure

our vision becomes

remarkably crystallized.

A hundred voices

attempt to sway us

and we find we must

lean into God with

a faith deeper than we

have ever known.

Change happens

in the very place

where many leaders

flinch, fear, and fail.

The tension we resist

is actually by design.

It tests us, it tires us,

It conforms us to His image.

The tension is necessary,

The tension makes us strong,

The tension is good.

“By The Boab Tree”, Ophelia of the Spirits


    Sing and I will hear you
    No matter where you are
    A song to light the darkest night
    And guide me from afar
    -

    And I will never be alone
    Now I know you’re somewhere
    You’re everywhere to me
    You’re the colour in the sky
    A reason to believe
    And when the rain falls down
    You tell a story
    And I will hear you
    Always near you
    By the boab tree

    -

    Lay your arms around me
    Like the falling rain
    Let the feeling drown me
    And life begins again

    -

    And I will never be afraid
    Now I know you’re somewhere
    You’re everywhere to me
    The warming of the sun upon
    The earth beneath my feet
    And when the rain falls down
    You tell a story
    And I will hear you
    Always near you
    By the boab tree

    -

    Oh you are somewhere
    You’re everywhere to me
    You’re the colour in the sky
    And you’re the earth beneath my feet
    And when the rain falls down
    You tell a story
    And I will hear you
    Always near you
    By the boab tree

“Healing”, Tenth Avenue North

-

So you thought you had to keep this up
All the work that you do
So we think that you’re good
And you can’t believe it’s not enough
All the walls you built up
Are just glass on the outside

-

So let ‘em fall down
There’s freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We’re here now

-

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

-

Afraid to let your secrets out
Everything that you hide
Can come crashing through the door now
But too scared to face all your fear
So you hide but you find
That the shame won’t disappear

-

So let it fall down
There’s freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We’re here now
We’re here now, oh

-

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

-

Sparks will fly as grace collides
With the dark inside of us
So please don’t fight
This coming light
Let this blood come cover us
His blood can cover us

-

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

“You dance over me while I am unaware
You sing all around but I never hear the sound

Lord I’m amazed by You
Lord I’m amazed by You
Lord I’m amazed by You
And how You love me

You paint the morning sky with miracles in mind
My hope will always stand
For You hold me in Your hand

How deep how wide
How great is Your love for me”
