Lessons From Above

Today I had the chance to fly with the Army Battalion where I serve. This flight is not my first, but one that taught me something new. Specifically, I learned to see what God sees, which is a big picture perspective.

See, the picture in this article is one I took from my flight.

Photography Fridays: Birds Have Nests & We Need Rest

Over the past few weeks I’ve shared pictures in this blog series and given my own thoughts about their meaning.

So I’m going to do this more than offering a long explanation from my own perspective. This doesn’t mean I won’t ever blog alongside the photos, but I won’t be writing as frequently in this series as before. This is because I want the photo’s to speak for themselves; minus a scripture or quote that concisely associates with the picture. With that said, here is this week’s entry. I hope you enjoy it because it’s one of my favorites.
