Week 2: Through the Lens of Worship

I went for a walk with my precious four your old son today. We were both so excited to get outside and feel the warmth of the sunshine on our faces. My son's main goal was to hunt for ladybugs...These shiny red and black polcka-dotted critters are his absolute favorite thing in all creation right now.
I was looking forward to bug hunting too, but also thought it would be a perfect opportunity to bring my camera and see what God might reveal to my little man and me.
I decided to make this my second entry for Through the Lens of Worship .
As we walked together, we noticed all the new buds on trees and shrubs. We began looking for all sorts of shapes and colors too. It was so much fun to watch Luke, seek with such enthusiasm for all the little treasures that nature has to offer. The tiniest blue flower popping up amongst the grass was his first a delightful find.

Then it was on to a pretty purple flower that had a little critter buzzing around inside! Luke had so many questions about this little bee. We sat for quite some time and watched this little fella as he flew from flower to flower so heavy with pollen that he practically crash landed as he darted from pedal to pedal.

The scripture that came to mind as we enjoyed God's Creation: "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
Romans 1:20
The Lord Blessed Luke with the swift capture of over 20 ladybugs!
Each one was placed gently into his yellow lidded bug cage and are now safely placed on his bedside table for the night.
As our adventure came to a close Luke was joyfully singing a song he had learned at preschool earlier in the day. With no prompting from me, I heard his little voice singing, "Our God is an Awesome God, He reigns over Heaven and Earth...Our God is an Awesome God!"
I agree Son...I Agree!

I really enjoyed your entry Kimberley! Gorgeous photos and story as well as a reminder from Romans as to why I love photography and the Creation as my favorite subject. He is an Awesome God... I'll be singing that all day =)

I LOVE this!
I think this is why the Bible says we need to be like little children - such pure, untainted faith that is full of wonder and awe. Our God truly is an awesome God.

Beautiful, colorful, fun pictures! Not to mention, the song you have playing by Jennifer Knapp, Refine Me - it is one of my dear favorites and I haven't heard it in 2 years. I immediately cried. Thank you for your blessing visually and audibly.

I enjoyed your spring looking photos! It excited me to think of how we will soon see signs of spring in our area... Can't wait to talk to my son more this spring about God's beautiful handiwork!

I enjoyed taking a walk with you and your son (and tried not to be jealous that you have warm weather and flowers where you live!!). I loved all your photos and sharing your time with God with you. :)
