There are times when I worry, to myself, about what the future might hold for me and I don’t mean the simple kind of worry either; I mean the kind of worry that makes me truly wonder. Family’s always there, for sure, but I wonder if worry’s not something that the enemy does to draw me away from the Creator, weakening me or my faith in the process. I’ve come to realize that it’s more of an attack because it makes me think that I’m not good enough; what makes me recover from it is a good prayer or strong reading for sure. I end off by realizing that I’m not really good enough to begin with because I need a saviour…We all do. In these days of media blitz from the left, right & center, we’re constantly being shot at with threats that are real and we’ve all got to do at least a little proverbial looking up. Sometimes it helps to retreat a bit, but sometimes it helps to really reach out. Solace is a wonderful thing, especially when friends, true friends, are actually involved.
Like with everything else, friends are important and it pays to have a few good ones; I often wonder in this day & age at how easy it is to have a friend on a social network, but not in reality. Family is always important as well, but, to quote the old saying, home is where the heart is. We get so lost in all we do that we sometimes forget that life is more than a connect-the-dots sequence of events and we just let things pass us by that we should be pondering; we worry about ourselves more than what’s really healthy for us in the first place as a result. When it comes down to it, we, myself included, need to be able to stop & celebrate the little victories as well as the big ones with those around us, not give in to the media hype that surrounds & suffocates us.
The above shot was something I would have missed if I wasn’t celebrating the little victories; there was a sensor spot right in the middle of the upper portion of the sky which really ruined the initial shot for me. Other than that, the shot was near pitch perfect and there wasn’t much to really get all worked up about. All I had to do was refine the image and carefully remove the sensor spot, but if I was focused on being worried about it, I most likely would’ve dropped the image altogether. In life, it’s like that because we all see at least one little thing that gets us all worked up (I’m really prone to this) and we forget to slow it down and really examine what it is we’re going bonkers over. We can let worry define us, like I sometimes do, or realize that we’re all in need of a little faith in our lives that we will see the light of the end of the tunnel and not a freight train coming right at us.
