30 Day Challenge: Day 9, A Photo you took


This is probably a photo I've taken that I'm the most proud of. I definitely don't consider myself to be a photographer, but once and I while I'll snap a decent picture. I took this one a little over a year ago. I went for a walk here in town, and I saw this group of sparrows in the grass in the park, and I managed to get some good pictures of them. Oh, and this was not too long after the Cherry Blossom festival here in Japan. You notice the white petals on the ground? This pic also makes me think of the passage of scripture:

But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Luke 12:5-7

Since I mentioned the Cherry Blossom festival, I can't help but share some pics from that as well...because I'm pretty sure I haven't posted pictures of it in the past...

Awesome pictures! I love the correlation. It's so amazing to me that God cares for each and every one of His creation.
