I don’t like bike riding.
Well, that’s not totally true.
I do like the feeling of the wind in my face and a sense of accomplishment.
I don’t like going ten miles when I haven’t ridden for weeks–umm–months.
And since we usually ride single file, I miss the communication, the closeness.
Those are the things I like about walking.
I also have decided I don’t like riding warp speed through life. My friend, Cassandra, is a climber. I like climbing. I like the view from the top.
But what I really like is taking my time.
Lately, I’ve been prone to wander. Off the path.
To see. To see deep. To deep see dive.
Seeking. Wondering at the mysterious and the marvelous. Finding joy in the sacred.
And now, thanks to Claire Burge, I’ve discovered the macro function on my little girl camera.
And so, I may suddenly charge into poison ivy. Or my husband may turn to find me far behind him on the path hung over some obscure weed or flower or berry.
This week over at High Calling Blogs, Claire has challenged us to find, fill, and zoom.
And here are just a handful of glory gifts I unwrapped that made me catch my own breath this week. (And I must say I’m kind of proud of my toddler photographer skills.)
And these next photos showed me what I could really see if I dove deep.
Deep see diving
“What a wildly wonderful world, God!
You made it all, with Wisdom at your side,
made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.”
Psalm 104:24 (Message)
