A New Day Unfolds

I love taking pictures! I always have a camera handy to capture moments that will never again repeat itself. 

Last week, while most of my workmates were at a team building activity, I found the beauty of daybreak at 5 am. I took a snapshot of the lovely sky with my cellphone. The moon was just so pretty!



I ran back in the building to get my camera. Then I took another picture. Notice how quickly it got to light? The smudge (or streak) in the middle of the picture is a sparrow in flight. My shutter finger was not quick enough to get a better picture of it. 




I stand in awe at the beautiful colors of the horizon. Its a new day. A new chance at life. 

Praise and Glory to the Holy Triune God. Thank you Lord for making me witness Your Greatness.

    1. Hi Nova. I work nights so that is most of what I see - the sunrise. I wish I could capture pictures of the sunset too, but I am usually asleep at that time. :)

    1. I wanted to take a picture of the huge moon last night but it was kinda cloudy and the pretty moon was partly hidden behind the clouds. I will try again tonight. :)

    1. Other people think I am too shallow, taking pictures of what they call "mundane" stuff. I love what I do and I see the beauty and story behind simple stuff. I'd rather take snapshots of life rather than take a picture of myself in a bikini. haha. (As if I would ever don a bikini)

    1. I agree, sis. As long as God gives us the sunrise, it means He still has hope in mankind. We must take to heart His blessings and make the most of what we have.

  6. We really should be doing more of this kind of thankful appreciation for such beauty that surrounds us than lamenting about our troubles.

    1. Totally agree. There are so many things that are taken for granted when in fact, all they ask for is to be appreciated. Flowers, little bugs, the blue sky, the moments spent with family... all these are precious!

    1. Isn't God great? He always gives us little reminders that He is always with us, giving us hope in life. Give thanks for the hope that every sunrise brings, and give thanks for the blessings we received with every sunset. God is good.

  9. Beautiful shots Sis :-) I also love the morning and usually take pictures of the sunrise while waiting for my kids bus to ick them up. I am a morning person and would love to take a picture more when it starts to get warm here real soon :-)

  12. We obtain energy from the Sun. And I believe it's right that we revere God for giving us the Sun.
