Sunrise With The Son

Dear Lord; Happy Wednesday Father!

“Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.” – Ansel Adams

As You know Father, over the past several months I’ve been spending a good bit of my leisure time working on improving my photography skills.  As part of that effort, the last couple Saturdays I’ve awoken in the pre-dawn hours and headed out to a local shoreline on the Delaware Bay in an attempt to capture the inherent beauty that those moments of sunrise bring.

And while the initial intent of those outings was simply to further my artistic pursuits Father, it quickly became apparent that I wasn’t there alone in that serene stillness…

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” – Psalms 46:10 (NLT)

Surrounded by the beauty and peace of Your creation Lord, I shared those precious moments with You and was blessed to capture some of that wonder through my lens…

Thank You Father.

Thank You for allowing me to share in those wonderful moments with You, and for the breathtaking beauty of the world You’ve given us.

For it’s in Your precious name I pray,

Amen.

    Oh, Phather Phil, these are breathtaking! Coincidentally, since my husband gave me his “old” camera lately, I’ve been trying to become somewhat of a photographer myself. Have a way to go in that arena!
    And, that quote from Ansel Adams? I can fit with writers, too – “Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone . . . put pen to paper!”
    Blessings and thanks for this inspirational reflection!
