When you find yourself flat on your back...Just Look Up!!
In November 2014, God put it on my heart to bring encouragement to others through His creation and His Word.
I have always had a creative side and wanted an online gallery for at least 10 years of paintings and photography. But that particular November, my amazing mother, Ruth, was diagnosed with a terminal illness, Amyloidosis. At this point, God said do it now because you do not know know how long you have on this earth.
I was lucky enough to take some time off and spend it with my Mom during her illness. Connecting with her and God. I was even able to get her input on thing that were growing at Look Up Designs.
I would not be where I am without the help of Lisa Filter. She help me create my logo from a drawing on a napkin and my website. Thank you, Lisa. Also, thank you to Gina Janaszek, my best friend, for her encouragement. Finally, to all my family, especially my husband, Tom Rajchel and sisters, Karen Glatz and Kim Zurcher, and friends, especially, Bill and Lynne Cressman for your continual support.
God has put it on my heart to bring encouragement, joy and hope into the lives of others. I praise God for this opportunity to share His Word and beautiful creations through Biblical inspired photography while living out my purpose for my life and to bring glory and honor to God.
At time that I was on my back, aka going through a divorce, all I could say to myself was Just Look Up. Look up to God because He will carry you through. Thank you, Jesus!
My prayer is that you will see God in these words and photos. Because there are times in ours and families/friends lives that we are put flat on our backs and we are forced to LOOK UP!
