Happy Easter!

Today celebrates the day when Jesus rose from the grave. It's a very happy day. So today I'm going to post a few of my favorite photos from the past couple months. These are not just pictures for me. They are beautiful moments, captured forever. These are scenes that are guaranteed to spark a happy feeling inside me.
When I take a photograph and it turns out good, it reaffirms my belief in God. Why do dandelions, little yellow weeds that gardeners hate, look so beautiful up close? Because God pays attention to every little detail and He wants us to do the same. When I look at the world through my camera, I have to use different angles and perspectives and pay more attention to the little things that would not matter otherwise - how the light strikes a bead of dew on a blade of grass, how shadows add definition to a little girl's face, how the depth and color of a person's eyes can be accented with just the right combination of light and shadow.
When I look through my camera, I see that those little things really do matter. Everything that God made matters and is beautiful if you look at it in just the right way. Now, through me, God can show you those little things and their beauty. I hope that they warm your heart as they do mine.


  1. Thank you Annabel, that is a beautiful post. I especially like the curly little stamens on the last dandelion. Who would have noticed them otherwise.
