I was searching for inspiration a couple days ago and I thought instead of looking elsewhere, I would look in our own backyard. We’ve had lots of hummingbirds visiting these days and they are so sweet. I put my long lens on my camera and went out to sit in the sunshine and wait for them. Soon one came by and I snapped away. Then another came along.

As I sat in the sunshine I felt thankful–and aware that I almost missed this moment. In the busyness of the day I don’t want to forget to notice the beauty. I believe there are bits of it everywhere. Even in the brokenness, there is beauty to be found. Will you look for bits of beauty with me?
