Gods Wonderful Masterpiece

Its been a while since I had a date with God and the camera. But on Monday I decided to stop on the way home and photograph my sunny "Good Morning" that God sends me each day on my way to work. He always seems to do that each morning. If its not the widlflowers in the spring and early summer its the sunflowers in August. Sometimes its that cute little donkey that stands on top of the stone pile, flexing his muscles to all the big horses that surround him.

When I stand back and look for Him around me, I become amazed at how he shows Himself to me in just the little things that surround me. How often have I passed Him by without realizing it?
I am reminded of a quote by Frank Bianco that says:

"If you begin to live life looking for the God that is all around you, every moment becomes a prayer."

What a wonderful way to look at the simplicity of life. The thought of living each moment like this brings a calm and peaceful feeling to my soul. Each day provides a new opportunity, a new lesson learned, and a closer relationship to my Creator.

Thank you , Lord, for giving me these little reminders that you are with me always. You are never far from me and I have nothing to fear. Thank you for being my all in all.
