Lenten Journey, Week 5 – 2015

artfully woven


What is this?  Who created this lovely, iridescent, shiny fabric?

On a sunny day in January, I walked to the end of the dock over Lake Washington.  Something sparkly  caught my eye.  When I looked to see what it was, I could hardly believe my eyes!  The railing on our marina dock held this lovely piece of artwork. I had my camera in tow and at that moment felt overwhelmed by the gift I had been given.  A tiny member of God’s creation had used its instinct to do what it does best.

At that moment I felt a kinship, a kind of peace, with the tiny spider as I was using my own creativity to record this treasure to share with my readers.

This is my last post for the Lenten season 2015.  The thought I leave with you this week is again from Psalm 139 , verse 14 this time:  “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”  Peace be with you all.
