Instagram {A Bigger Picture Moment}

I really love instagram.
Because it's fun. Because it keeps me connected to people I care about.

But mostly because it allows me to capture moments - instants - that might otherwise
slip away.
Either I wouldn't stop long enough to take them in.
Or I might quickly forget them.
Ironically, "insta"gram has slowed me down...helped me to stop and take notice.

This picture says:
It's 5:00.
Work is done for the day.
You're outside and the air is fresh and the wind is blowing.
It says:
Your time is your own now.
And it's light - there's so much light!
I'm reminded:
The sky is big - huge!
And so is God.
And He's given me another day.
Another day to work, breath, think, create, live.

And I breathe in,
and exhale...
And I'm grateful.

Today I'm Linking up with:
