My Calm


This was the sight that stopped me in my tracks last night on my way home.

The kids and I were racing home from soccer practice at 7:15.  I kept thinking about all the things I needed to get done… feed kids, bathe kids, clean up supper, talk to Grady about possible weekend plans, get things lined out for my UBER early morning and try to find some time wind down in between.  My mind was racing.  As I turned south on the last 5 mile stretch to our house I looked out my window and saw that.

I HAD to stop.  It wasn’t just the photographer in me that had to catch a moment like this. 

No, it was the God loving Christian in me that NEEDED to stop for this.

Whenever I see the sun’s rays beaming through clouds like this I can’t help but equate it to God’s hands reaching down and tearing away the darkness and stress and soothing us with His light. 

I NEEDED to see that calm.  I NEEDED His light upon me at that moment to show me that life really IS simple and pure.  It’s only as stressful as I make it to be.  It’s only as chaotic as I want it to be.  It’s only as good as I let it be.

Life truly is as simple as the sun breaking through the clouds and casting beatiful beams of light upon this earth.

May you let His light shine upon you and brighten your moments.

Peace, love and big beams.
