I have learned to watch people – a lot. And I’ve asked the Lord to let me glean the good that I see in others – and I’ve started watching those that will challenge me to think differently and that would make me better – not that they are my idols or I’m putting them over my Lord – but that He would give me the visuals I need that would draw me closer to Him. Anyone that knows me knows I love taking pictures – but rarely am I still. Even with the kids hammering and building – the dogs barking – and even though there is no study guide or copy of Scripture in my hand – my soul is at peace. There are dozens of birds flying and chirping back and forth – my camera is ready – and my soul is singing – even in the stillness.
