Capturing the essence of moments in time to be able to hold on to meaning for this life. Beyond the skies, there is a God who says “I love you more than you will ever know or conceive.” In the grand scheme of things, that is what is necessary to hold onto because that is eternity. The past couple of weeks have been a frenzy. Moving around because of circumstances, it is necessary to say that even in all the different scenarios, God was and is my provider.
What is my comfort zone? Now, it is trusting that wherever God has me, He has me. Over the last several years, I have desired stability in living my situation. That place called home that I can come to every day or night after work and relax. That place to refuel and strengthen myself for the next day. I still desire that.

I wasn’t sure about posting today because when I got up I didn’t feel too great. However, today was my first day off in six. I decided I wasn’t going anywhere. Had an appointment that I changed. Going with the flow, you know.
At any rate, I pulled out my camera after reading some blog posts and commenting. I thought, “Just let me go out to the backyard and take pictures of whatever I see.” Did that. Ended up taking some of a football, tree, flowers as well as the skyline. Now, what to do with them? I love photography as well as writing. I have been hungry to do some major depth of field shots but don’t have the camera I want. I do have a Adobe CS 6 though. [Graphic design class software, part of the $65K.] Anyway, time to put it to use. Pulled up a site regarding depth of field and Photoshop. First one I pulled up worked splendidly. Who knew?
I still needed to go pay an urgent bill and went out for a while. Back at home, I pulled up the images I took and loaded them to the computer. After playing around with the depth of field, I added all the images above. I only added the depth of field to the first image. I did want to share because I see how natural the creativity came as I went with the flow of things today. As part of this journey, I know that everything is done to the glory of God. In going with the flow and not being too busy, I just wanted to relax today. Be led by what God wanted for me today.
The point here is this, after taking the images and really thinking about the flower, I am blessed because I know that God cares for me just like the flowers and the trees. God truly has stated His glory when we look around and understand the true beauty of nature. Nature just grows, we don’t have to help it along. We are not needed to bring spring forth, summer, winter or fall. We can just enjoy it all. Hope you enjoy the images!
