This is my "test shot" turns out I liked it better than the one I was trying so hard to capture. I got a little behind over the weekend and things came up that were unexpected and that leads to this teeny tiny feather. I let Christina know this morning that my post would be later today. What I didn't know was all I would accomplish before I would have time to take a photograph and blog about it. Yes, I accomplished much more than I thought was possible of myself today. Knowing what was ahead of me I said a few prayers. I prayed I would make not just the right decision but the best decision and that can be a true challenge. How do I make the best decision and know that it's the best? I can ask friends for their support in prayer. I did that. I can pray myself. I did that. Then I can go on with what I "think" is right.
I got in my car when my work day was done to find this teeny tiny feather float into my car and land at my feet. Maybe someone else might not even see it, maybe someone else would even be annoyed by it. Maybe someone else would toss it right back out. Not me. For me this feather was a confirmation and sign. Not confirming the choice I was making but rather just to remind me that He cares about us, He cares about the big things and He cares about the little things. That's what it was for me, just the reminder I needed at the exact right time. I snapped a shot of it sitting on my leg, inside my car and shared it on social media but then I realized I had not taken a single image all week with my Canon and that's the point of our Mindful blog. I decided I would photograph the gift I had received. I felt it very worthy of this mindful spot.
I still don't know the BEST choice but I've moved towards what I think it the right choice and I'm patiently waiting now for the doors to open. Or close. That's what I'm waiting on, but I've done my part and that's all I can do for now. Patience is also a lesson I think I need. I will wait.
I visited my friend's blog post about her mindful moment last week and I giggled when she explained how she didn't take a mindful photograph, and she didn't take any group family shots and she didn't even take photograph's of her two darling grand girls however this clearly spoke to me. It spoke that she was mindful. She was enjoying her time so much even if part of it was cooking the meal, she enjoyed it so much she didn't have time to take mindful photographs for she was living them. That made me smile. I hope you go visit HER because her words always have me smiling.
