Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections from the day:

  • I had a Saturday when I should have been able to sleep in but I woke up at my normal workday time with aching knees and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I got up and went through some photos from the past few days and did some writing.
  • I’ve found restlessness can either be annoying or put to good use . . . it’s usually my choice.
  • Looking at some of the wildlife and nature scenes that God has allowed me to photograph makes me eager to capture more of it.
  • Paying attention to the work of God in our life ought to make us want to see Him do more in and through us.
  • I played some Wii Fitness this morning but the aching in my knees seemed to keep me from being as focused as usual . . . my normal “fitness age” is 20 or 21 but today it was 27.
  • Discomfort in one part of our life will usually affect the rest of our life also.  God says that when one part of the body suffers, the rest of the body suffers too . . . this is true as an individual and as the body of Christ.
  • After lunch we headed out in search of scenes that wanted to be photographed. 🙂
  • We started by searching the area where we found a snowy owl last week but found nothing to photograph there.
  • Just because an opportunity existed in the past, doesn’t mean it still exists . . . it may or may not.
  • Our next stop was along the shoreline of Lake Michigan where I snapped a few photos but there was nothing that really caught my eye enough to spend much time there.
  • Observation is key to staying in step with God.  Sometimes a situation may seem likely to be where God wants us involved but a closer look may reveal that it isn’t the right place for us.
  • Finally we headed to a rural area where a snowy owl had reportedly been seen the past few days.  As we drove and kept watch, we saw a white lump a great distance away in a field and it turned out to be a snowy owl.
  • You may not always find what you’re looking for, but you’re more likely to find it if you are looking.
  • Today’s photo is actually several of them that I took of the snowy owl we found.   It was a long way out in the field and I had to max out my zoom and do significant cropping to make the owl more visible than just a speck, but it was still fun to see and photograph.

    • Thanks! It helps that my wife and I both enjoy the beauty of God’s creation and trying to capture glimpses of it in photos, so in our free time we head out looking for what we can find. And yes, having the camera with me and ready is a big key. 🙂
