Photo Friday

Linking up with Diane W. Bailey this morning and her Photo Friday feature. 
 
I love, Love, LOVE taking pictures. Mostly I take them, I look at them, I post some to Facebook or Instagram and then I forget them.  Because, really? 
 I love taking the pictures.
Not so much the editing, labeling and saving part. 
I used to worry about that {perceived} flaw in my character but I've decided to give that up. 
 
I love taking pictures, so I take pictures. 
 
This morning I walked through the Prayer Garden at the Church House before I came into my office.  I snapped a few pictures with my phone with no intention of publishing them.  But when I saw Diane's link up, I thought I'd see how my morning walk pictures turned out on a screen larger than my phone.
 
It really is a lovely garden and I feel greatly blessed to be able to walk through it regularly, even occasionally to sit and spend a quiet moment in prayer among the flowers.
 



This shy hydrangea  was peeking out cautiously from the cover of her leaves


 

I caught this bathing beauty still dripping from her morning drink


 

Rosemary adds a delicious fragrance to my walk

 
 


This bit of sunshine  was lifting her face toward the heavens in praise




I love the light and shadow playing on the deck


Those few moments stolen from a busy morning
 have added a depth and richness to my day.

Those kinds of moments remind me
to inhale of God's rich blessings and goodness
and to exhale in prayer.

Happy Friday!

I love the dew-dropped impatiens (?) or whatever pink beauty that is. It's amazing what the new camera phones can do.

Hopping over from Diane's today. :)
