Thursdays Thanksgivings..."One Beautiful Moment" {Northern San Francisco Bay Area Photographer~Shelley Hohe}

"One snap of the shutter, and there it was . . . one beautiful moment captured in time for eternity."
This was the first sentence of my morning devotional that I read a few days ago.  Being a photographer, this devotion really spoke to me and I wanted to share this with others.  Every morning not only do I love it, but I need to have my morning devotions with starts my day on the right path!  

I love it when I am able capture the ordinary with my camera and by creating a gallery with the photos I capture it tells a Timeless story full of beauty and life. Just like in this devotion I love how it talks about how  "God makes extravagant beauty out of seemingly mundane things."  Whether it's the skies above or the seas below everything in between the two are masterpieces created by God.  

Not only did God use a gallery to display His masterpiece when creating the skies, seas and everything in between, but He also used a gallery to display His glory...humans!  "We too are made out of something ordinary—dust"  
Genesis 2:7-8"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed."

You might think as humans we are ordinary, mundane and seen by few, but God looks at each one of us as his beautiful masterpiece created just by Him. How beautiful is that! 

Isaiah 40:6-8 
The voice said, “Cry out!”
And he[a] said, “What shall I cry?”
“All flesh is grass,
And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades,

Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.

The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”

Devotion by...Our Daily Bread.
