Out of Body

When I saw the sun glowing on these beauties, it was like that weird magnetic pull you see in old school cartoons. And I am unable to walk away. It’s not determination, more like obsession. Could be worse. There’s plenty of negatives to be obsessed about. I have a few. Another time. Probably tomorrow if we’re to be honest.

So when I see something drawing me in, I’ve realized it’s my “check out of reality” moment. I seriously walk away from everything and everyone. I am on a mission people. I want desperately to capture the emotion I see. I want to share the glorious colors God blesses us with. Now I don’t have a fancy shmancy camera. I have my phone. But I’d like to think that I do a pretty good job with it. It’s what I have and I’m thankful.

I see things and I feel such a deep appreciation for them. So many times it’s the simple things taken for granted. It’s my chance to forget the hurts, responsibilities, fears, anxieties, and heartache. I can see that thing and it becomes my only focus. Short lived yes. But it’s such a relief to have small moments of peace.

A small moment to really see what we’ve been given. And those moments are just free. Freedom. Freedom to breathe and have my spirit be open to simplicity.

Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free.

~Psalm 118:5
