In Summer’s Waning Glow

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Great Spangled Fritillary 92221a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

In summer’s waning glow and beneath the shadows of the oaks she delicately balances on the tips of the flowers. She patently tries each bloom softly sipping the sweet reward inside them. Soon she’ll visit the cluster of violets nearby to deposit her clutch and leave her brood in trust to the creator of life. She knows that in his mercies they’ll be guided through the coming seasons and sleep until the longer days wake and release them into a new world of plenty. Perhaps she knows the smile of the child and soft giggles that will come when her future takes flight in the next season of blooming. The air seems a little cooler as she spreads her wings and moves on into the changing world and the destiny of renewal she carries. And the foundation for the next cycle is laid unseen but ever present.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Provisions And Faith

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Far Horizons 91321” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The little skipper butterfly sits quietly on his purple flowers and looks out towards the realm of green laid before his eyes. From his perspective the world has no end. All that he sees is a universe with no borders nested in a small eternity. Because he knows the world was made for him he has confidence that when he launches himself into the air he’ll most likely encounter his provisions that were prepared for his life. His peace comes not from his foreknowledge but from his heart. He has no ancient history or maps made by his forefathers. He simply trusts that his maker has already put everything in place. As the breeze builds up he’s not carried by the wind. Instead he opens his wings and catches it. In spite of his tiny size he wrestles a force of nature into submission and seeks his fortune in faith that it’s already waiting to be found. May we learn such a simple truth our blessings are waiting to be discovered.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

The Brief Opportunity For Joy

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Skipper In The Mists 82821” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The late summer is a time of haze and mists for Appalachia. What ever rain falls is quickly recalled by the sun and soon rises up from the mountains giving everything an ethereal feel. The little butterflies and bees waste no time between showers and the Ironweed nectar is irresistibly sweet. They’re drawn in to it like gravity. As I approached the feast with my lens they are too compelled to feed to be concerned about the giant hovering a few inches from them. And a few even decided to test my bright red shirt just in case I too was one of the blooms. Late August and early September is often a wet season and the little ones know that the break from the rain is temporary.

We should consider that own opportunity for living is always limited. There are always seasons of joy and seasons of sorrow. If the little butterfly was afraid to risk being caught in the next downpour he’d stave to death in fear of clouds. But instead he boldly snatches every second of joy he can find. We too have times and seasons when opportunity seems limited by circumstances but I think that we can learn from nature and aggressively grasp every single moment of joy presented to us.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Dreaming In Purple

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Dreaming In Purple 82921” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The light slowly fades behind the ridges and shadows soften the landscape. With the day’s work done it’s time for rest and even the industrious little bumblebee is ready for a recharge. She clings tightly to underside of the sweet buds in the humid air. As she drifts off into the land of Nod she thinks about her day. Thoughts turn to expectations and expectations are born in dreams. As her body rests she experiences a magical world with glorious blooms and an open sky. Perhaps she encounters friends and neighbors in her dream world and listens to the angels sing over her. Dawn brings a new world and as she’s warmed by the sunshine she wakes to find her dream made real as the very buds she clings to have opened in the night and are waiting for her to enjoy. The Good Lord above has seen to all her needs. How much more will He give to you and me?

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Everything Is Special

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “The Monarch’s Arrival 82521” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

A friend once asked me if I lived in an enchanted forest. To which I replied that I absolutely do. Of course it all depends on your definition of enchantment. It’s not the hocus-pocus kind of magic but the recognition that everything which surrounds you is miraculous. The idea of the mundane is the death of recognizing the miraculous for its true value. The thought that a simple worm can cast a vail about its body and emerge from it with beautiful wings shimmering in the sun should never be thought of as less than a miracle. The fact that this transformation happens with regularity should be even more meaningful. If, as the Bible says, it was all spoken into existence by a creator is that not the very definition of enchantment? Do we only think of it as less than miraculous because we see it every day? In our lives of knowledge and technology we’ve been allowed to see the gears of the universe in some part but it shouldn’t make it any less wonderful. And if a simple worm was entrusted with the power of transformation how much more was granted to us? You hold miracles within you. Just because they’re there every day don’t underestimate how special they are. A kind smile has the potential to change a moment. Kind words can change a destiny when spoken at the right moment. Don’t let the fact that this power is so easy to access make you think that you’re mundane. The butterflies change their own image but you have the power to change the self image of others.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

I currently share my posts to different groups on various social media platforms. Some groups have the comments shut off after a certain time period. That’s OK because our admins and moderators are volunteers and have busy lives of their own. They shouldn’t need to constantly babysit comments. But if you want to add your own thoughts to the post there’s a public comment section at the very bottom of the page on each post.
