Wow! I haven’t been here for soooo long!!!
I’m stopping by to say that I’ve been living in Brazil and studying art at the federal university. Everything is good, thanks to God!! Sometimes I struggle a bit with life… but who doesn’t, right???
Well, I started a new project last year and for 2016 I decided that I would do it for real!!!
Follow me on Instagram: @caballosdepaseo
And I’m also blogging about it: caballosdepaseo.wordpress.com
My personal instagram is: @artbycamila sometimes I post some pics!!!
Thank you all!!
I thought it would be cool to keep this blog and post random pictures of my new life!
This is Praia D’Ulé (no clue why or what it means), about 30 min from where I live. I went there to a shooting of my cousins and his friends for a project they are working on and of course, I had to take some pics! This beach is great for surfing and one of my cousins surfs! It was quite cool the shooting! What a beautiful place! Great time with my cousins and friends!
By the way, I started my new blog! My art meets my life.
And I’m also on Instagram (artbycamila) posting some pics on the go!
“… now my eyes have seen you.” Job 42:5b
(Wow! Last day! I did it!!! Couple days ago I was thinking about what picture I would take for my last day… Then this caught my attention 2 days ago when I was taking another picture. The tree growing horizontally made me think about a timeline… Then, yesterday I went downstairs and took some pictures of it but hopping that I could take it again today… And it happened! I think this picture represent this project for me. The trees on each side like the beginning and the end and in the middle, all that happened this year… It was a cycle that ended, but also it brings me the feeling that I have way more to see and to live! And surely I have seen God through it all!)
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” John 14:1
“Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights above.” Psalm 148:1
“I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you.” Psalms 139:7-12
(It is way to hot here in Brazil… I did not want to go out to take a picture today… So, I laid in my bed and saw my beautiful box that I brought with me with my stuff inside or I should say my life inside. I’m a secret person… It is difficult for me to verbalize and when I do I think people don’t understand… Anyways… I’ll open this box soon… and I’ll share about some stuff in 2013 on my new blog… The only one that knows it all is God… Nothing is hidden from Him.)
“You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” Psalms 139:15-16
(I’ve been wanting to take a picture of a baby for a quite long time… and today my little baby cousin Julia was born! I had the privilege to be there with my uncle and aunt! What a beautiful and blessed baby!!! What a great way to be reminded that God see us still…)
“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!” Isaiah 9:6-7
(One of my favorite passages… And another Christmas decor at home.)
“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.” 1 John 4:9
(Christmas decor. After 11 years, it does feel good to spend Christmas with family but really weird to feel so hot and sweaty instead of cold and snow… 🙂 Merry Christmas!)
