Picture of the day - February 13, 2009
Sunbeams over Lake Ontario
|Photo courtesy of Kevin Smith.
Ever since I was a little boy I have always been awed by the sight
of sunbeams bursting through a hole in the clouds, and today's
picture by photographer Kevin Smith is as beautiful an example as I
have ever seen. Captured on gorgeous Lake Ontario, this image makes
me feel as though God Himself is smiling down on His creations even
as we humans struggle with problems of great historical magnitude.
We have been graced with an amazingly beautiful world in which to
but all too often we seem to forget about all the blessings we have
been given as we toil from day to day to make it through our
all-too-short lives. I believe it's important to take a breather
every once in a while just to reflect on the bounty of our wonderful
planet and the greatness of the all-powerful and supremely loving
God who blessed us with it. And photographs like this one sure make
the task a lot easier!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful shot! I've spent many hours sailing
the waters of the Great Lakes with my husband and father-in-law, and
I can tell you from personal experience that you will see things
there weather-wise that you simply won't see anywhere else. This is
an outstanding photograph Mr. Smith.
