I'm Watching You

I took several pictures when my gardenias were in bloom. I didn't pay much mind to anything other than just clicking away doing my own merry thing.

But something was watching me the whole time. I didn't even know it, or notice until later when I uploaded these on my computer and enlarged them. Can you see it? Would you have noticed if I had not told you?

"For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him." 2 Chronicles 16:9

How many times has God watched out for me and only in looking back did I see His presence and help? I will certainly trust in Him who watches over me.

Keep Your eyes on all us children, Lord.

I just glimpsed at the flower at first but when you said there was something I immediately saw it.

Great story and photo to get the point across.

Hey Karen. How are things there? You okay? Is the spill affecting you?

Analisa said...

When you said watching you I spotted the fly(?). Yes many times I looked back and noticed God was watching and keeping me. Now I expect to see His hand in everything.

Diane said...

How do you get these pictures???? You're like a sniper of tiny, hidden things! :O)

I wished I lived in a climate where I could grow gardenias. I tried a plant inside once. It lasted about a year. Boy did it smell wonderfule in bloom though. I did have to go back and study the picture. At first glance, before reading the post I didn't see it. It is so easy to miss the small details.

I would not have seen him if you hadn't told, Karen! Thanks for sharing your gift of finding a God lesson in everything--and I thank God for you.


Karen said...

Parsley, I'm farther down in Florida-the Tampa Bay area. So no oil here, prayerfully never.

Analisa, I can't imagine how many times I have missed seeing God's watchful care over me.

Diane, you make me laugh! Sniper of tiny, hidden things...:O

Amy, awww, sorry they don't grow well up there. I love them, too!

Jeanette, you are so sweet. Thank you.

What a beautiful photo, Karen. But honestly, if you hadn't pointed out that little critter, I don't think I would have noticed. Well, maybe I might have.

Trusting Him to watch over me, too.

Blessings, my friend!

That seems to happen to me all the time. I have to wonder how many things I miss.. plenty, I'm sure. Gorgeous flower and cute wee bug.

Karen said...

Awww thanks for the kinds words-one day, when I grow up, I want a neat camera like yours. :) I'm trying to be more aware, especially since I write.

That little fly watching you enhances your lovely rose photo Karen. Well done. Dave
