Leithia Warren in the Palace of Versailles by VidalDon’t Quit. Don’t Surrender. Each of us has a LIFETIME and MILES and MILES of DREAMS, GOALS, WISHES, AMBITIONS and DESIRES that whisper to us and vibrate within our SOUL. We somehow feel that we are too busy, too limited, too restricted to PURSUE the GOODNESS that is ECHOING in our SPIRIT. Step out of the box, the comfort zone of yourself and IMAGINE stepping TOWARDS the DREAM(s), walking TOWARDS your JOY, embracing your BLISS and even if you sit in silence for 5-10 minutes feeling what that would feel like, you will notice an EXCITEMENT well up in your SOUL. You will feel an ENERGY that is being gathered. It’s your ENERGY. It’s your POTENTIAL. It’s your LIGHT. Do NOT ever DIMINISH your LIGHT because of circumstances, limitations that others place on you, or shallow expectations of those who have sacrificed their own LIGHT and now can’t find their way. You are RESPONSIBLE FIRST and FOREMOST for YOUR own path and journey. You are WORTHY of KNOWING LOVE. You are HONORED by FEELING LOVE. We are all connected through the DIVINE LIGHT and LOVE of our CREATOR. Your potential is ENDLESS. Your LIGHT is ENDLESS. This JOURNEY during our Earth School Days is NOT ENDLESS. We didn’t plan our BEGINNING and we do not plan our END. However, EVERYTHING in between is UP TO US. Step into your LIGHT and step into YOURSELF. Welcome Home…now get to DOING & LIVING & DREAMING. Step into YOUR LIGHT and SHINE!!!
Dream. Reach. Live. Do.Leithia Warren in the Palace of Versailles by Vidal

Key West Photographer at the Basilica of St Marys Star of the Sea Midnight Mass, Key West, Florida

The Mass was the Most amazing and touching yet, from the entrance of the baby Jesus to the choir OMG to feel so blessed by the love of the Key West Community, we are never alone unless we choose to be!  May the magic of the birth of Jesus ouch your heart, your soul & your lives!   May we continue to do God’s work in all of our affairs!  I must be the richest man alive…thank you Key West and God for giving us your only Son….Happy Birthday Jesus, your Spirit lives forever St Marys Xmas 2012!!

As we await the wounder of his birth … Key West Photographer & Event Planner pauses to give grace!

This is the most magical day of the year!  Whether you believe or not today is the miraculous birth of one of the MOST spiritual leaders that has ever walked the face of the earth!  They tried to kill him and yet His spirit lives on, the King of Kings, the most gracious, kind and loving, the forgiver of sins…the maker of transforming new lives … He has a sense of humor and is God’s Son …. He only walked the earth of 33 years, was a carpenter, never has a car, an ipod or wore expensive clothes, yet His gifts are eternal, tools that STILL are laid at our feet today for our inspection!  Died for our sins was crucified, tortured and rediculed and yet the words he muttered to his heavenly Father God were, “Forgive them for they don not know what they do!”  What am I doing today for another human being, is my house in order, do I carry the message?   Most important of all CAN I FORGIVE?  I feel the magic in the air, people are kinder and more tolerant … it’s not about the material gifts, or who has the best Christmas tree or the best party, but it is about what is in my heart!   I can carry this feeling all during the year if I choose to … In all times of trouble and turmoil,…”Be still and know that I am God!”  God loves you and so do I …. Merry Christmas one and all, because of you I am the richest man alive!Merry Chistmas

Wedding Photographer, Event Planner, Weddings, Themed Parties all Events for Key West!

The holidays are upon us and it can be a very joyful time of year. Some of us have problems during the holidays and sometimes are overcome with great sadness when we remember the loved ones who are not with us. And, many people have no one to spend these times with and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring thoughts and loving prayer right now. If I don’t see your name, I’ll understand. May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy, paste, and share this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I hope to see this on the walls of all my friends just for moral support. I know some will!! I did it for a friend and you can too. “If you don’t look good..I don’t look good!”

I am grateful for a magic-carpet ride kin of life …. God first in my life everything else is First Class! Vidal Weddings & Events 32 years strong and going!
