Last week, my husband and I went on an outing so that I could capture pictures of the fall colors. While we were out, we happened upon a swampy area along the Natchez Trace Parkway, and discovered unexpected, stark beauty tucked away in between towering cypress trees.
The green sludge on the water gave everything a wintry look, but the sun peaking through the trees and the faint hint of autumn provided warmth.
The photos of the leaves on the water were some of my favorites, especially of how the colors contrasted against the sky’s reflection on the water.
I’ll be the first to admit something, though. Deriving enjoyment from hanging out in a swamp does mean that I need a life! However, God made us each unique and loves us as we are.
He also blessed me with a husband who adores me in spite of my quirks. Even though I doubt that he got the same thrill from seeing the swamp, he was very patient as I spent time photographing it.
I cannot figure out why God gave me such a loving, faithful husband, but I am so glad that He did. Discovering his love was one of those unexpected blessings in my life. He didn’t know that swamps were part of the equation when he married me, though!
