Present in the Present








If you must look back, do so forgivingly. 
If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. 
However, the wisest thing you can do 
is be present in the present....Gratefully.

Images captured while being quietly present in the present in the garden. Kookaburra (Kingfisher family), tall-stemmed fungi amongst morning dew, lemons drenched by steamy summer storms, Crocosmia (native to Africa) and a neighbourly hibiscus flower).

A great quote and fabulous shots. Your lemons look more healthy than mine this year. They seem to have caught a bug.

Your shots are, as always just beautiful. No place to be in the present better than out seeing all of God's creations. hope you are having a beautiful summer! Blessings to you from Texas

My husband and I have just had this conversation and the fact that neither of us seem to live in the past, we prefer to live in the present and a little into the future. Our future is getting shorter and shorter I'm 70 this year and hubby will be 71. The here and now is very nice thank you 👍🏻😀
