Yesterday evening I was feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. I picked up my camera and decided to take as many pretty pictures as I could before the evening got too dark. I did just that, and it was like therapy. When I was finished, I felt at ease. It was a good time.
^ Came across Momma Skunk with her two little ones. I was
stupid brave enough to get close to them. They even took the time to look my way :). (Click on the picture to make it bigger. It looks so much better!)
Ever so sincerely,
Today was a rather slow day, but not bad. I started the day by saying goodbye to my boyfriend who will be gone until the 17th at a Christian youth conference called Momentum. I do hope he has a grand time, and I’m praying that God will teach Him lots. After saying goodbye, I took my 366 picture. Let me tell you – it was a great decision to take the picture in the morning. You see, it reached a high of 98° today – it was quite icky, sticky, and sweaty. I so much enjoyed the cool of the morning – and the lighting was so lovely and peaceful :)! Double bonus for sure. (btw – the photo looks much better large. Click on it!)
After looking at the pictures I took for today’s 366, I began to think of how God made man from dust.
“then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.” Genesis 2:7 (ESV)
It blows my mind to think that God used dust to form the first human. How did he do it? Did He kick up a bunch of dust and voilá! Adam was standing there? Or did He carefully pick up each little bit of dust, and place it where it belonged?
After dwelling upon these questions, I am struck by the statement that God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.” Does it say anywhere else in Genesis that God did this to all the animals? I wonder – is Adam the only one who God ever breathed the breath of life into?
Well anyway. I shall stop babbling. But now, dearest Readers, I would like to know: What is something that blows your mind? What is it that makes you stop mid-step, and think until your brain cells burst? I would so much like to know. Please comment if you have something to share!

Inspiration is a grand thing. When it falls upon you, that moment is a lovely one. I don’t know about you, but when inspiration strikes me, there are about five minutes of all sorts of feelings of originality, innocence, humbleness, excitement, magic, color, thrill, uncertainty (which later turns to certainty), and countless other adjectives.
This is a rather short post. But I really couldn’t help myself… I was inspired :).
