The Sunday Creative - Abundance


The theme for this week's Sunday Creative Challenge was Abundance.  For me abundance is all about nature and the gifts God gave to us and this earth.  From the warm dirt of the earth to the bright light of the sun, we've been given an abundance of riches.


I'm in awe of the way it all works together.  The earth and sun work to grow plants that fuel our bodies and provide the air we need to live.   The wood of the trees we use to built shelter to keep us from the rain and snow that in turn provide the water we need to quench our bodies and to keep the plants and animals alive.   The elements and ores found in the earth provide the vitamins and minerals we need for healthy bodies and to make the tools we use to prime the earth for more plants.  Not only does God and nature provide the things we need to live, they provide beauty in abundance.  How blessed we are to live in this beautiful world.

Love the pictures, the thought and the song. Yep, I went out and bought it. I don't know if you noticed, but this was your 200th post this year. Right now you have posted as much in one year as you did the previous 2. Keept it up. Love it!

this is a great prompt for abundance, wonderful shots. With regards to a macro, they are fantastic, the 60mm f2.8 is a great lens, I use it for lots of things not just intricate close ups.

Yes we are blessed with the abundance of nature...I love it also. I do have to say I don't look forward to the abundance of maple leaves that will soon be in my yard from the tree in my neighbors yard; yet I love the abundance of shade I get from that tree in the summer. tit for tat! Have a good week.
