Sher'd Designs PICTURE PERFECT

Perfection in the Imperfections

Sher'd Designs

Sharing God's perfect design with an imperfect world.

As a Christian, I felt early on, a calling to capture the world in photos and not how the world sees it.

..."for the Lord sees not as man sees..." 1 Samuel 16:7 ESV

As I couldn't quite picture what that looked like, I began to seek Him and His will for my life. Soon some things came into focus, a shared design, and a business plan that began to develop on my heart.

As a single mom, with little money and no former photography training or tools, it was He who provided the time and dime to acquire the equipment and classes to develop my craft. As I began to study concepts of composition, lighting, and contrast - I noticed God was also doing a work in me.

The business was to be called Sher'd Designs (pronounced Shared), short for Sherry (Sher), but BIG on designs.
Selfie Practice With My New Camera

If I am honest, I was skeptical at first as I had no idea what I was doing or what this was about, but He did!

So I began to just take pictures on purpose and with no purpose. (Old cars fuel my soul.).

Soon, I discovered, like me, that no PICTURE is PERFECT. It's only a matter of perspective.

It's what we focus on that counts!

So I thought, how can there ever be a perfect picture when we live in an imperfect world? I am certainly far from it!!!

Jesus is the perfect one. "He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth." 1 Peter 2:22.

However, much like my Christian walk, it was my imperfections that became perfected in Christ. Where I am weak, He is strong in me. The same is true of my photography.

Picture that!

So for me, the pressure was off like a lens cap. It's wasn't about the "photo finishes" and being a critically acclaimed photographer.

"My only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me —the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace." Acts 20:24

Capturing His word and Work in photos and messages!

Thanks to friends, family and Shepherd's Village - this shutter bug has been busy.

So for me and this camera...

we only go where the heart flows.

Whether creating images that Focus on Him,

through His people

He is perfecting.

a picture perfect for a...

Daughter of the King!

This is how it started!

First photo taken on my flip-phone when I was in a very dark place in my life. I wasn't a believer. I wasn't seeking religion, but I was seeking the truth!

It was then, the relationship that I didn't know I was looking for, found me!

This image appeared when I was reading about God's promises which, honestly, I NEVER knew existed. (My son was a witness to this image, as well.)

"...but the Lord looks on the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7 ESV

As I surrendered my life to Him, He filled my heart, as I began to focus on Him!

See if you can find the second heart shaped cloud, on the website.

Keep smiling & Focus on Him,

Sherry,

What is His perfect design?
