Photo Prayer 2021-39 -- Endless Flow

Right now I am slowly catching up on everything I blissfully ignored while on vacation. I knew these tasks would be there when I returned. That is somehow comforting. I won’t call them my faithful friends but the things left undone are always at hand. There is an endless flow of them. I never wonder what will happen when I run out of them. Yet it is good, for a time, to blissfully ignore them, to stand above the Little Bush Kill and watch the rushing water flow over the stubborn stones as it has done since before tasks were ever imagined, the wild current eager to get to the sea, the fallen leaves along for the ride.

This photo reminds me of the Chesapeake River and Bay as me and my daughter and sister traveled over it on our way to Virginia Beach, Va. this past weekend to attend my great niece’s wedding. The Bay was beautiful and it looked as though the river and the sky were one. When we got to the hotel on the beach, from our room, the ocean was just as serene as we watched the waves crashing against the shore. Such a phenomenal experience for us. God is in the midst of all His creation.

The flowing Little Bush Kill carried you away too for that much needed escape from those not-so-blissful tasks. Love the image!

I fly fished the Bushkill when I was a kid. It’s a beautiful stream.

I can’t quite figure out what it is exactly that the photo captures. Do I just have a poor imagination. I know it’s “somehow” flowing water but can’t account for the shift from blue to the orangish color in some “strands”. Love the idea that this all started long before tasks became a “thing”! [DANNY REPLIED: The water is orangish, either from the fall leaves dying the water or from fertilizers from nearby farms or simply from erosion. Those are my three guesses. And the blue is the light from the sky.]

Thanks for another of your photo prayers. I look and enjoy them every week. My wife and I just got back from a 6-week vacation seeing our son and granddaughter in Holland and my wife's sister in Germany. But it's nice to be at Home Sweet Home and continue with the endless flow of routine and chores.
