Being carefree...

CIMG1725_2, originally uploaded by Velvet Lime Designs.

Fall arrived a few weeks ago in Georgia and the azalea blooms of spring and summer have long since slipped away and prepared for their upcoming winter’s nap. Perhaps that’s why this photo of Sophia and azaleas taken in the spring was so refreshing. I captured Sophia, one of our three granddaughters, twirling in our back yard ….carefree, arms outstretched, filled with overflowing joy … and giggling contagiously.

I love to look at this photo of her in total abandonment to any worries or cares … completely immersed in this moment of enjoyment, playing with “LaLa” (that’s me).

It’s how God wants us to live…. carefree, lighthearted and with joy. No worries, no cares, immersed in His love.

Go twirl in the yard today.
