Photo Prayer 2020-39 -- Fitting In and Standing Out

Odd, isn’t it, that some people try so hard to fit in while others try so hard to stand out. Then there are those who try to stand out so they can fit in, those who adopt wild hair colors, body piercings, distinctive dress, mannerisms, and language so they can fit in with the outsiders. Fitting in or standing out, it is safe to say we want it both ways. Look! I’m someone special! Look! I’m really no different! Look! I’m just like you, unlike anyone else! Look! I’m just like you except that I’m me.

Danny, wonderful picture. Knowing we are made in the image of God, you'd think we could be a bit more secure, resting into God's limitless love and being more comfortable with ourselves. Hope you enjoy a couple of pictures of autumn beauties that showed up in the yard/garden this week.

Danny, Talk about being knocked sideways. What a glorious image and what clarity. The play of opposite hues is just thrilling and your sentiments about individuality shows your love of humanity.
