Persist in This

 

Unnoticed, in silent existence.

We pass it without a glance.

It’s beautiful.

An amazing organism team; fungus and algae.

Too lowly to consider.

Some fix nitrogen fertilizing soil.

All live in harsh habitat; surviving drought, cold, heat.

Miniature chemical factories…producing 500 bio-chemicals;

controlling light, repelling herbivores, driving off attacking microbes, for survival.

Lichen persists on the earth.

Jesus, Creator of extraordinary lichen.

We pass him by without a glance.

He’s Savior.

He’s inexplicable-three in One.

Suffered a lowly death on a cross.

Only solution to our sins.

Persist in Him; survive a harsh sin filled world.

Receive eternal life…free.

What does a grandfather, husband, former public school teacher and Education Specialist for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service with many life experiences in nature do with them? A naturalist with a camera-makes outside a daily destination. My confidence is that God will guide my words, and photos. We live in a magnificent world, come and look at it with me through eyes, lens and words. To God be the glory. Current Profile Photo- Prickly Ash, the name summarizes this brushy undergrowth well. It fascinates me with its thorny branches. Seeing a vine wrapped around the trunk called for a photo.
