For the Love {Feb} Early Morning Ride ~ San Antonio Children Photographer

As the sun was beginning to peek out from the rooftops, we took a ride. With her new, pink Hello Kitty shoes and her favorite sweater we headed out into the chilly morning air. There is something special about being outdoors before the sun has had a chance to climb all the way into the morning sky. Slowly, the sun stretching her arms in the gift of another day…filling the sky with the hues of warmth.  

My something special peddled and drove without a thought about what lied ahead in the day…she was in the moment. She rode her cotton-candy-colored bike and filled the cherry, red basket with treasures she found on her morning adventure.

…rotating the peddles forward and backward…

…humming along as the birds sang their praises…

…giggling as she rang the bell…

…watching intently as the trees delicately danced in the sunlight…

She was taking it all in…seeing…feeling…appreciating…listening…it was so easy for her…all while the sun was creeping into our moment…

Watching the sun come up takes patience and in-the-moment presence. No distractions. No clock watching. Just quiet attentiveness on the gift given from a loving, generous Creator. The sun’s rays shining down and wrapping themselves around a life that I often take for granted feels like a hug from a loving Father. But to see and feel the sun’s rays, I have to be present. Being completely fixated on the moment is the only way to see the miracles. How many times have I bemoaned the sun rising for interrupting my sleep? How many times have I taken for granted the miracle of the sun’s rising or for that matter the miracle of the Son’s rising?

She doesn’t know it, but she gets it. She has perfected the beauty of living in the moment. And her reward…a front-row seat to the daily miracles God provides to those who are open to seeing His presence.
