My Spot

A to Z blog hop at Patterings
Welcome to A to Z!
We'd love to have you join the fun, either blogging your way through the alphabet with us, or simply visiting. =) We dearly love visitors.

This week is the letter X.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, maybe this one will count...

Yup, today is the dreaded letter X. I procrastinated and had no post, figuring I'd stretch the limits of this to the Xtreme. (That's an Xample of what I was going to do.) Then my sister Cheryl texted and asked if I had a shadow picture. A quick mental inventory told me I didn't. BUT, the light was just right outside and I knew I had a good chance at getting one.

So, I grabbed my iPhone and took off--didn't even put on a coat. Big mistake. I turned into a popsicle. But sometimes you just need to go without worrying or even wondering. Turns out, this was one of those times.

I went and found some shadows and my X.
But I found more.
I found joy and praise and awe for my Creator.

As I competed with the cat for a spot on the deck railing, I captured a picture of something that still makes me pause. And I'm so thankful. (That picture is on my Instagram and my Facebook wall.)

If X marks the spot, have you found your X today? 
Have you slowed down enough to find your X? 
It might just lead you to your own moment of awe and praise.

This picture will be in my Instagram feed. Not only that, but Cheryl and I have teamed up and created Juxtaposed Sisters. Two sisters, so much alike, but living life worlds apart. We swap pictures and get the best of both worlds. Come join us!
