March 2017 Photo Challenge – Day 8 The Sky

The sky it at its peak and your eyes are glued to the vast array of colors. You stare as the beauty passes before you in a matter of minutes.  Perfection.

The Sky Changing to a Sunset

Anytime I look at a sunset I can’t help but think “Wow, that’s God’s painting right there.”  Seems like I am always in awe at the colors and beauty that I witness at a certain time each day. You simply cannot look up and ignore that the sky is on fire!  With it’s vast depth of purple and red to its pastel pink and yellow.

Sometimes, if it’s raining, you may not get to witness the glory of the sun.  On these days it seems a bit murky.  However, most days here in AZ you will find a beautiful sunset and clouds that dance across the sky.

What if there are no clouds?

It’s the same.  Ha ha, you thought I was going to tell you something smart didn’t you?  Nope, that’s just it.  It will still change colors without the clouds. Got you on that one!

The Night Sky

The stars come out,  and depending on the time of year or even the time of the month, you are going to see a different version of the moon every night.   I couldn’t get a decent photo of the night sky with my phone, but the moon definitely has its own kind of glory.  I love that it seems to change every night, even if in all reality the moon is still sitting there the same.   Maybe one day I’ll get a camera so I can take a picture of the night sky.  For now, you’ll just have to put up with a sunset!

March 2017 Photo Challenge – Day 7 Luck

Today's photo challenge just said "luck". I wasn't sure how I wanted to take a picture of "luck" until this morning. Now I have the opportunity to write!

Luck or Blessed

The letters in the photo are are actually from the fridge.  My kids often play with the letters and make words.  They also play with the numbers.  Because they have both, my boy can add or subtract and my girl is starting to sound out letters.  It is fun to watch them play!

What do you think about when you think of the word luck?  Seems like my life has been fairly lucky.  I mostly think it is blessed, instead of the word luck, but either way you see it I have had a good life.  There have definitely been ups and downs don’t get me wrong.  Although sometimes I didn’t recognize the blessings or the luck I was having.  Now I am able to see clearer what parts of my life were truly spots of luck.

Recently I have had the blessed opportunity to allow myself to feel and go with what God has in store for my life.  Sometimes it is stopping to do something I wouldn’t have thought to do and other times it is simply wanting something, praying for it, then being open to receive it.  I would say I have ran into luck on a daily basis as of late and I hope it doesn’t run out!

7 Thing That Make Me Feel Lucky

  1. My children
  2. A functioning car
  3. A place to call home
  4. This computer
  5. I love my job
  6. Great friends
  7. Loving family

When I think of these things I can’t help but feel lucky.  I really am so fortunate as to have my kids and without my friends and family I don’t know what I would do.  I love them dearly and I am so lucky to have each person in my life.  Luck really is how you make it.  If you see your life as blessed or lucky you will find it.
