The Morning of May 20, 2010

I was out one misty morning. It was cold, wet and humid. Tired from yesterday's flight but still,I wanted to start the day early. I have my special reason and there's plenty of things I'd liked to frame with my camera.

I was busy as the shutter was. Framing flowers here and there. What a refreshing way to start my day! Focusing on beauty.

As I worked on my macro, I started to notice tiny creatures creeping quietly.

Have they realized how short their lives are?
I'm thankful I'm counting years not days.... I began to feel my inmost celebrating life!

Ahh.. they, too, are in celebration.

Then came Mr. Lizard to pose for me.
 I talked to him a bit and told him it's my birthday.

Thank you, God, for the gift of life.

"....I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." 
John 10:10
