Dirty Dishes

Life is like a camera lens: it's all about perspective.

Isn't it true? I was pondering this while tackling a sink full of dirty dishes just this afternoon. With the right angle, aperture, lighting and lens, my sink full of those blasted things could be a thought-provoking, eye-catching piece of art. (Of course, in order for MY sink full of dirty dishes to be considered art, a good photographer would also be a necessity!!! )

Want to know something else? With the right attitude, angle, Light, and perspective, my sink full of dirty dishes can also be proof of God's blessing. My sink was full because I had an angel food cake cooling on the counter for an Easter dessert at my parent's house; I had a 1/2 gallon mason jar full of strawberries, sliced to perfection by two handsome boys; I had Cowboy Cookies (Craig's very favorite cookies of all) baking in the belly of Thelma for our Spring Break trip in a few days, and I had four tummies full of peanut butter and honey sandwiches, complete with sticky smiles.

My friend, Sharon, reminded me of the value of perspective in this blog post.

Just something to think about...

OK, you can't keep the Cowboy Cookies recipe all to yourself...Inquiring minds want to know (and taste:-)!

LOL! I was doing dishes today and I dirty dishes don't look nearly as lovely as Ericka's. You take wonderful pictures!
