Sacrifice of Thankfulness
  Picture Praise Photography by: Carol Magnusson        

Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High.

Psalm 50:14

I always admire butterflies and pretty moths, but I also find them next to impossible to photograph and they just don’t ever seem to sit still with the wings in the “right position” to be able to take a beautiful picture. I have adrenal fatigue syndrome and was taking a break at Miango Rest Home almost in Jos, Nigeria.  Every few weeks I try to spend at least three nights there in order to rest from my work as Human Resources Director.  I like to sit in one particular place and color using pencils in a coloring book that is for more “mature” colorists. As I was sitting there looking at some of the beautiful flowers to my right, I noticed one plant in particular attracts butterflies and moths.  The plant is not just attractive to these beautiful creations, but they sit and stay on the plant.  So, I used my little Canon camera and started taking photos of these beautiful insects.  I’m always thankful when God allows me to see such beautiful things.
