Two years ago, I was going through the most difficult time of my life. One of the ways I coped with it was photographing nature, mostly birds and macro. It helped calm me down, to remind me that my God made all of this, and that He had a plan for me if I would just trust and have faith. As we approach the 2 year anniversary of meeting our daughter and understanding that plan, I am reminded that I need to experience that love and devotion not just during the difficult times, but all of the time. I headed out to photograph nature almost every day last week, whispering silent prayers of thanks along the way, shaking my head in awe at the gorgeous tapestry that is laid out before us. The colors, the movement, the calm and energy of nature – it feeds my spirit and faith in a way nothing else can. I have missed it and didn’t even realize how much.
When you are done viewing my week, head over to see my good friend, Julie Moses‘ week! Her stunning photos are always so full of life, love and color!
