Caravan Sonnet: today.

10/29/14

today.

"Almighty God, we bless and praise Thee that we have awakened to the light of another early day, 
and now we will think of what a day should be. 
Our days are Thine, let them be spent for Thee. 
Our days are few let them be spent with care. 
There are dark days behind us' there may be dark days before us, strengthen us for their trials.
 We pray Thee to shine on this day- the day which we may call our own. 
Lord we go to our daily work. Show us clearly what our duty is and help us to be faithful in doing it. 
Give us strength to do, patience to bear, let our courage never fail. When we cannot love our work, let us think of it as Thy task; and by our true love to Thee, make unlovely things shine in the light of Thy Great love. Amen."
Happy Wednesday Friends!

    1. Aww... you are so sweet friend. I definitely love taking pictures and finding beauty in the small and big moments around us. I think being sick has taught me to look even harder for the beauty in each day and photography is one small way that I document that beauty! Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words!!
      :) Hugs!

  7. Did you take these photos? If so then you are multi-talented. No fair! Just kidding. They are beautiful. I absolutely love the one looking up at the tree with the pinkish clouds. I'm a photo enthusiast myself. Actually I'm a photographer without a camera. That is a sad thing. :)
