So the day I wrote the journal below...I received a text message from a couple of gals looking for a roommate...for only $290 a month (which is within my rent budget). I meet them TODAY to make arrangements and get to know them...but it looks like I found a place to live until May...and they told me they would LOVE to have me! Best part yet...they are Christians!!! So I don't have to live with strangers who do not share my faith xD So after a month and a half of waiting on God and trusting in Him to provide the perfect place...it seems that the search and waiting is FINALLY over. During that time, God proved to me that He will provide for my every need...down to the very last detail, and on top of that, bless me financially. I woke up the other morning to find $1000 sitting in my back account to pay off backed up bills and put money aside AND have enough money for food! Thank you JESUS. 




So in my last update I told you all that I have a place to live and a job and blah blah blah.

Well, I need some MASSIVE prayer from you guys. Please. I still have a job, and I'm still making money. But, the people I was staying with decided to kick me out a few days before Christmas time. The reasons they gave me were vague...the major one being "We don't trust you here alone with all our stuff." I was supposed to be out by the 31st of December...I was kicked out waaaaay before that time. They gave me one day's notice...so I had no warning. I came home from work...and one of the gals came into my room an hour later and said, 'You need to be out by Sunday and I'm giving you till Tuesday to find a place for your stuff'. It was Friday evening when she told me. 

So...from then on, I've been roommate hunting, apartment hunting, and staying with my coworkers who have graciously put up with me for far too long. 

So far, nothing has come through. Most things are out of my current price range. I put an ad on Craigslist with very SPECIFIC details mind you, and all I have received is emails from men wanting sex/someone to 'play' with -_-. I am VERY discouraged but I'm pressing onward because I KNOW God has me here for a reason, and He TOLD me to trust Him. But I can't do this alone. I've thought about giving up and leaving and going back home to Washington. My family is begging me to come home...but it doesn't feel right. 

Please, pray for me. Pray that God will provide the open door for a place to live, and it will be exactly what I need. 

Thank you all for your support and encouragement...you all are a blessing!

Love, Dara

Sorry about the absence...God answered my prayers in a MIGHTY way...after five months of praying for Him to provide me a new area, a new job, and a new place to live...He did JUST THAT. I currently live in Fargo, North Dakota with a girl who did her Discipleship Training School before me. Not two weeks after I moved, I had a job. I have a place to live, a job, and a new start in life. 

Photography is going to slow down...ND is not exactly pretty...its flat. Sorry...no more ocean sunset pictures :/ Its almost winter and I'm not going to be venturing outside in -35 degree weather (unless it is to go to work of course).

Like I said, I currently have a job...which is going to take up the majority of my time. I work at Family Christian Stores in the West Acres Mall, and I started two days ago. So far I love it! 

I will be doing more writings and poems and posting them from time to time as I have inspiration. 

Life is good! And I am SO HAPPY that I have a new start in life!

A young Mongol boy riding his horse past me. No he is not riding in a saddle.

Mongolian Countryside
Beautiful Mongolia with a traditional ger in the background. This is how the herdsmen and nomads live, and they move about three times a year to find feeding space for their flocks and herds. This family hosted me and my team for the day and let us ride some of their horses and drink their airag.

Greetings,

My name is Danielle (aka Dara Black). I am an amature photographer and I wanted a place to store my photographs, (and my writings, as I am now uploading these as well I guess). I currently live and work part time in Seaside, Oregon. I am am a Jesus freak, a self-proclaimed Gothic at heart (sometimes it comes out in my outward appearance...okay like all the time, but that's alright), and an outdoors lover (as you will tell from my photos when I upload them!). I love to hunt, fish, hike, fire my rifles at the range, ride horses, run the beach, go clam digging and crabbing, as well as write, draw, paint, and dabble in photography. I have a passion for nature and for the Lord and I do my best to incorporate these passions into my photography and writings.
