It’s early, overcast and gray. The sun is staying hidden behind a thick blanket of clouds. I glance out my bedroom window and see beaded raindrops on the Bleeding Heart below my window and I can’t resist.
My children still sleep and I just might be able to slip outside with my camera. It’s a time of worship and thanking.
How can anyone see these beautiful intricacies and deny there is one awesome, mighty, Creator.
The light is dim and I have to push up my ISO to 1000. But, I’m willing to risk a bit of graininess for the sake of putting my heart into my photographs.
I get down close. I kneel on the ground and put on my extension tube. These rain drops beg for macro shots. I lean in close, hold my breath and attempt to get a clear picture with a shutter speed of 1/40.
And my heart is filled with awe and thankfulness for this moment. This moment of just God and me enjoying his magnificent creations.
The details in each and every flower hold me. They capture a bit of God’s beauty and they prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that I serve a glorious God.
I could spend all morning looking for the spectacular. But, I know my children will be waking soon. Besides I know that there is spectacular in every moment of every day as long as my focus is spot on. A focus that is honed in on the faithful, good, beautiful One.
My God and Savior who is worthy of all my praise!
