Last fall I took on a 30 Day Photo Challenge which inspired me to look for the extraordinary in my ordinary life. With the Lenten season officially upon us, I am beginning again. One photo a day during Lent. The task at hand? To be more mindful of those unexpected gifts we receive every day but perhaps do not notice.
I walk by this statue in my yard every day. Today, I saw her differently. With her head bowed, she captured the essence of humility and I am reminded of these words:
“May we draw from the cross
the power to be humble,
the strength to be meek &
the guidance to be true always.”
On this Ash Wednesday, I am reminded that all gifts come from Him.
And I am humbled.
