The First Snow of the Season

Yesterday we had the first snow of the season.  For those of us who do not like wintery weather there is some trepidation.  However, despite my dislike of the cold I enjoy the beauty of snow.  God is so creative to think up a different design for every snowflake.  I enjoyed the beautiful designs that plastered me on my way into work.  I did not enjoy the wet wind, but I saw several individual snowflakes.  They were beautiful.  God is an amazing designer and He gives me frequent opportunities to enjoy His creation.

God is so good.

Sunset Obsession

I thoroughly enjoyed taking sunset and cloud pictures this summer.  God has blessed me with some amazing shots.  My favorite evening was this one – the sun rays were fabulous.  

Clouds and sunsets show the beauty and creativeness of God.  He is a phenomenal artist and He wants to share it with us!  God is so good.

Beauty and the Mundane

Anyone who has seen my Instragram and Facebook accounts knows how much I love sunset pictures.  Tonight brought a beautiful sunset, but I wasn’t able to get pictures at my favorite spot.  I wanted to catch some of the beautiful color so I decided to take pictures near my home.  

I love the life lessons God sends my way through my enjoyment of photography and less than ideal settings.  Life has beautiful moments.  I often wish for more beauty, but the mundane fills more of life.  I am learning that there can be beauty along with the mundane.  The houses in my neighborhood are fairly ordinary.  However, when the sun is setting the ordinary houses shine.  God’s beauty is never far away.

Light For Dark Days

We have seen many difficulties in recent days.  Situations such as the shooting in Las Vegas last week, nuclear threats, religious persecution, health struggles and let’s face it – our own selfishness can take us down a path of darkness.  However, there is a light that shines bright when we choose to see.  The light is Jesus Christ.  When we allow God to permeate our lives, we have a light that can penetrate any darkness.  So before you get too focused on the dark parts of life, focus on the light of Christ.  He will take you through the dark and give light for the way.
