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

  • Another morning with a clear night sky filled with the beautiful lights of the stars and planets.
  • My morning routine was accomplished with a song in my heart as the words filled my mind — “Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing!”
  • The song makes me think of Jesus telling the religious leaders that if the crowds would be silent, then the rocks themselves would cry out.
  • My photography hobby allows me to capture and share images of creation shouting praise to the Lord.
  • My day consisted of a lot of tedious research as I continue to track down some networking issues and make corrections one step at a time.
  • Sometimes we come face to face with things we know aren’t right but our lack of patience causes us to swing the pendulum of change so hard that we over correct and end up with no improvement.
  • Life is a series of steps.  Some steps may be larger than others, but the important thing is to keep the progress of the steps heading in the proper direction.
  • The workday ended up being long, and it’s still unclear how much progress I made, but my steps were all headed in the direction of improvement.
  • After I made it home, we headed down to Potato Creek to see what we could find to photograph.  I eventually found a beaver swimming away from me at the headwaters of the lake.
  • It started to get quite foggy as we left the park but we headed out to eat dinner with my parents instead of going home right away.
  • Today’s photo is a collection of birds that I photographed mid-afternoon as the sun came out for a time.  These were a part of nature that I believe heeded the call of the song to “Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing!”

  1. I’m using the phrase “Life is a series of steps. Some steps may be larger than others, but the important thing is to keep the progress of the steps heading in the proper direction.” as my meditation tomorrow.
