Capturing Beauty

Today I'm joining Traci at Ordinary Inspirations for her very first Capturing Beauty blog hop.  Traci has encouraged us to stop and capture those moments that speak beauty to us, then link back with her on Monday, sharing a picture we have taken.

I'm a photographer wannabe, and I just recently started taking pictures.  I'm not sure what I am doing, but I know what speaks beauty to me - anything having to do with nature.  This is a shot I captured while at the zoo last week.

Standing Out
Pink flower

I just love how the little pink flower seems to stand out amidst the green.  I want to stand out  like that in the world.  

Thanks, Traci, for encouraging us to stop and capture a little beauty everyday. 

Continuing to count my blessings, from 1 - 1000.  This week I am thankful for:
290.  Our Daily Bread devotional 
291.  God's mirror that reflects the condition of my heart. 
292.  Growing closer to God and His amazing Love
293.  People with passion
294.  Pinterest
295.  An unexpected, but welcomed new kitty

296.  Beautiful weather for a fun day trip to the zoo
297.   God's amazing creation - I LOVE fall!!!
298.  Two of my favorite boys

299.  The fact that Jesus never gets freaked out
300.  Candy corn

Many blessings,
