Unexpected

My focus was to photograph the Canada Goose
quietly resting in the mid-afternoon sun. It was after
downloading the photo, I noticed the tiny Killdeer Plover, standing almost in front of the Goose. Its presence added much more meaning to picture than I had expected.
Often in our day, a tiny bit of support, encouragement or Christ like love extended to those around us could
add much more meaning to their life picture than we,
or they are expecting.
Heavenly Father, to be a source of unexpected meaning to lives around us, we are grateful, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Beauty in the Shadow



It glided quietly through the shadows of approaching sunset,and perched in the overhead branches, almost unseen in the approaching twilight. But, nothing could conceal its beauty.
Today’s busyness: appointments, schedule changes,
quick decisions, traffic backups, overseeing projects, technology malfunctions, may have the possibility to conceal the beauty placed by the Great Creator in us, and around us. May our prayer be … Heavenly Father, in the midst of the busyness of
today, let nothing close our eyes to Your beauty,

in Jesus’ name, Amen.
