Day Twelve: Perspective #NPCAdvent2015


Today’s Prompt: Write about perspective 


I’m embarrassed to say that when the above photo was taken, I would have rather stayed inside. I was snuggled in our cabin, reading a book, drinking some tea. We were about to eat dinner.

Mama can we play outside? Mama? Maaaaaaammaaaaaaaaa! Can we play outside?

I got outside and couldn’t believe that I wasn’t already out there. The sunset took my breath away. I closed my eyes and gave thanks to God for the beauty of nature, and two little boys who weren’t content to stay inside.

Oh, and since this day is all about perspective, I’ll tell you: I turned that picture upside down. (the sky is on the bottom) 🙂


This post is a part of the 25 days of advent writing and photos that I’m doing with my church Northwood Presbyterian Church, San Antonio. For the writing portion, I’ve just set a timer for 20-30 minutes and whatever I have at the end of the time, I post. No editing past the time limit… no worries if there are errors or if I stare at the screen for the first 15 minutes. Giving it a try.
