I recently joined an online community for photographers at iheartfaces.blogspot.com.
It’s a place where photographers, both amateur and professional,
can come together for ideas, inspiration, and lots of sharing.
Every week and month they have different photo challenges,
sometimes for the prize of being featured on their website
and sometimes for other grand prizes (like new lenses!).
Last week one of their challenges was about flowers.
I usually don’t win at many competitions or drawings.
So normally I don’t even try.
But I had just taken some pictures
of our beautiful flowering bradford pear tree in our front yard.
And I was inspired by a friend to do something with it. So I did.
And what a beautiful surprise to open their email this morning
to see MY picture chosen as one of the pictures displayed!
It even got published on their website!
Want to see which picture was chosen?

Thank you, Lord, for this unexpected surprise that has put a smile on my whole day!
