Through the Lens...

On our trip to Colorado, we had to drive for hours through northwest Texas. BORING! I have driven through this part of the country several times, and have struggled to stay awake. I think they call it the "plains" for a reason. Flat lands, with nothing but miles and miles of land and sky. As we started driving, I decided to get my camera and play around. The weather was beautiful, low 80's, sunny with some clouds, so we were driving with the windows down. And I started just snapping random shots.

What I discovered is beauty in the plains.






I wondered how many times in my life I've missed beauty because I wasn't taking the time to look for it. And how many times have I considered something "plain" that was full of beauty?
Oh to have His eyes...

J and I love that drive. Seriously, I come alive in big open stretches of land where the blue sky meets the green grass! That is what I imagine heaven looking like. Something from here to Amarillo ignites me. And I have to say, as a lover of that creation, you captured it BEAUTIFULLY. I saw snapshots of some of my favorite favorite favorite things! And that made me very happy. What a good way to start a day.
