The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1
With another glorious and warm winter day before me, I decided that I would go for a drive with my camera in hand and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of picture taking. However, when I stepped outside and saw the passing clouds of a cold front, I knew that I did not have to go anywhere to capture the beauty unfolding on this day. Dramatic clouds, hints of blue sky and peeks of the sun enthralled me as I wandered about the yard snapping pictures.
At times, like a kid, I just laid on my back in the grass looking above me and admiring the changing canvas of the sky. And while lying there, a simple turn of my eyes allowed me to discover a weed that in its simplicity was really quite lovely and with a little imagination looks a bit like a donkey’s head!
The lesson learned today is that beauty is everywhere – you just have to be looking for it – up, down, all around, God’s creation is good… Even the reflection in the RV’s windshield seems to pronounce this simple truth as it awaits its next adventure on the road!
