Sweet Moments in the City



These are two shots I took at my lunch...well truth be told it they were shots I took after work, I had the full intention of taking them at lunch, but when I was at this particular spot with my camera in hand the nice little screen pops up reading 'no card'. Being the genius I am, I was trying to load pictures this morning on to my computer and left the card in the holder. Regardless, long back story to the actual pictures. If you were to look behind where I was standing or even a bit to the right you would see city, apartment complexes, traffic, 'land altered'. I have come to appreciate places like this. "Mystery Spots" as I have deemed them. Un-touched nature in the middle of consumed nature. When I was at lunch though, I had spread out a blanket and brought a good book, but in the middle of my getting comfortable moments I heard an ever so faint yet distinct noise, just above the traffic and sirens. It was a choir. I looked to my left and saw just as the hills begin to start there is a little church. A choir radiating above the noise of the city. I would not say I have the best hearing, but I am able to detect music over a lot of things. Even though I struggle with being here, God continually provides moments like this that reminds me of how very present He is in my life and my journey. This being one of my sweeter moments in this city life of mine.
