The live to see another day Assignment.
I’d like to start with a famous quote from “Ferris Buellers Day Off” The movie that goes a little something like this, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
This is the perfect start to this assignment, and the photo below is just one example of how great and big and beautiful this world can be! Just gotta look to see it.
This is as simple as it gets. On a golf course around 06:45 just in time for sunrise and I just had to stop and sit for a while. The picture obviously doesn’t do it justice, they never do, but yet I knew I had to at least try and capture the light beams shining through the leaves and the bright blue sky above and the misty air rising from the drying out grass. There’s just so much to take in here and this is only one example of how beautiful the small things can be, so you can only imagine the larger aspects of life like the National Parks even!
Personally, I get this rush that flows over me and fresh air fills my lungs when I see something like this and actually stop to appreciate it. It makes me sit back and thank the Lord for all that is good in this life, and just gets the day off on the right foot. It’s sometimes hard to take the time to sit back and step out of the rush that today’s world lives in and see the beauty that exists. It’s there and it always will be. You just have to open your eyes.
