Light and Shadows at Quivira ... (and elsewhere)

He has made everything beautiful in its time.
 Ecclesiastes 3:11

We were chasing butterflies at Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. It was just a bonus that I got to chase the light and shadows, too, as they danced across prairie grasses and goldenrod near the Kids' Fishing Pond.

Dried up grasses and weeds aren't the obvious choices for beauty shots. I can relate: I have to make myself be on the other side of the camera lens.

There is beauty everywhere - even in dried up grasses and grandmas ... especially when LIGHT is applied.
12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8: 12 

A Time to Think

The simple act of stopping and looking at the beauty around us
 can be prayer.

A Time to Pray

Thank you Lord, that however small or seemingly insignificant our gifts,
You can weave them into Your glorious symphony.

    1. Thank you, Robyn! Some days, I do better "living" it than others.
