The Grace of Others

We were leaving their house.  A trip to see around a hundred decorated trees and meet Wally, the Red Sox mascot was planned.  My children and mother-in-law, buckled in the car, waited.  I walked out and immediately opened my camera bag.  The light was just lovely, and I needed to capture it.

Thankfully, I did not delay our departure that time as we were waiting for others to emerge from the house.  If only this were always the case.  Unfortunately, I, at times, have become the obnoxious photographer...delaying others, making people I try to capture a moment or two in photographs...

And, today, I am grateful for the grace of others that offers me kindness, patience, and encouragement as I take a few moments to do something I enjoy.

  1. Thank you for reminding me to be thankful to those that have to deal with me and my camera...

  2. That light was worth capturing! As to #828, sigh, Green Bay did what Dallas (my home team) did not. Congratulations to the Pack on remaining unbeaten. You linked up just ahead of me at Holy Experience; I'm glad I stopped by. It's lovely to meet you. Grace and peace to you in Jesus.
