Let Us Pray

{this row of sunflowers caught my eye – they appeared to be bowed, as if in prayer}

There are days when I whine,

and days when I say words that would be better swallowed whole –
even if they did make me choke.

There are days when the world tastes bitter
and the thousand choices I am faced with seem every one a mistake.

But the thing I love best about this capricious, untamed life is that
even in the midst of my fear,

I can bow my hand, join with all creation and say –
It is good.

I love the photo. You really have an eye for composition.

I know I have it somewhere, but for the life of me I can't find it. Would you mind refreshing my memory as to what type of camera you have? Christmas is coming and so is talk of a new camera. I adore the pictures you take! I only hope to have half as good of an eye as you do!

I have a Nikon D50. Of all my possessions, it comes the closest to being an idol. . .
