Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

[caption id="attachment_415" align="alignleft" width="464"]Delicate yet beautiful Delicate yet beautiful[/caption] This week I saw these flower pedals resting on the floor after a gentle California rain shower and I had to stop and take a picture. After I took the picture and posted it on Instagram (@dreaminofcolorado) I realized that the fallen pedals are much like us when we fall. When I saw the large drops of rain resting on the pedals it made me think of when we fall due to other people hurting us and the raindrops reminded me of the tears we cry. Then just as quickly as that thought came, I thought "But they are still beautiful" and we are! Even when life or people seem to have defeated us, damaged us, or cause us to fall, we are still beautiful. To take it a step further, even when we are removed from the source that caused us to grow we are still beautiful and inspiring to others. I've felt this way sometimes. Especially with this new move to Colorado (being removed from my family, my growing source) and with all the attacks on my integrity, personality and motives from family and friends, sometimes it's hard to remember that through it all... I'm still beautiful. A post for submission to Daily Presses Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

    And rightly so, you are beautiful, for you are a child of God. Beautiful capture of those raindrops.
