Dry Places

“Rough diamonds may sometimes be mistaken for worthless pebbles.” – Thomas Browne

I think we have all encountered a season when we feel dry. To me the feeling of being dry is when you feel like you cannot go on anymore. It’s a feeling of low energy and low desire to do anything. How do I personally handle this? First, I acknowledge that giving 100% that day might look like 50% on a another. I do what I can with what I have. Second, I look for ways to get refreshed. I select music that encourages me, or listen to motivation podcasts or sermons from church to lift me up. Third, I make rest a priority. The number one lesson I learned during the pandemic was that rest had to be priority for me.

Last November, I visited Fisher Farm Park to take photos with the family. While I was there, I decided to take photos of the landscape. I found this lone tree in the field we were walking in. I took quite a few photos of it at multiple angles. Other than the photos I took of my family that day, this was my favorite subject.
