giving thanks...


for little brown birds on white sandy beaches


for shy, scuttling fiddler crabs


for friendly beach feet


and friendly fowl footprints


for seeds of new life


and always, always - rising, setting, and in-between,
for light.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
— James 1:17

Such lovely photos and so much truth in that verse.
I know the lavender toes belong to Emily, so are the bright pink ones yours? For toes, I lean towards pink, but I like lavender on my fingernails. :)

Leslie said...

No, the pink toes belong to a friend... mine are bare at the moment ;)
