I often hear clouds talked about as gloomy and sad. I think they’re beautiful. The photograph below was taken using my iPhone 6 on the roof floor of the parking garage at my job a few days ago. It was a stormy, rainy morning on my commute to work that day. These fluffy clouds were the sight I encountered as I waited for the elevator. They made me smile.
I’m not sure why the photo does not enlarge when you click on it. If anyone knows leave a comment below.
This past Friday, my son had his first high school marching band performance at his school’s first varsity football game of the school year. And as a proud parent, I took dozens of photos with my camera. While there, the full moon lit up the skies along with the stadium lights.
This past week as I left work and walked to my car, I looked at this tree. I’ve seen it before, and I like the branch pattern. But something new caught my attention. Look closely. You see the little white flowers starting to grow? Reminds me of our own lives. We’re sometimes so bombarded by stresses that sometimes we lose sight of the small positives that signal some grand positives and we feel like giving up. Don’t forget to look a little closer. Yay! Spring is near!
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.”
-Robert H. Schuller
I spotted this little critter on the morning of New Year’s Day near my front porch. Despite my passing by it and unloading groceries from my car, it calmly remained there for a long while. I was able to finish unloading and go inside and grab my camera. With everything going on around it, it’s amazing how this wasp is able to balance on a single blade of grass. I guess it had a sense of when to hang on and when to let go.
“Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.”
Last week, on my way to work, I saw a rainbow. So, I decided to take out my iPhone camera and snap a picture. When I viewed the picture at work, I was surprised. What I had seen as one rainbow were two. When I was at that intersection, I didn’t see the second. But, somehow, the camera captured two. Do you see the two rainbows?
