Front Royal cotton

My wife took this gorgeous picture of spent cotton while we were exploring Skyline Drive a few weeks ago. Our son was fascinated by the cotton plants, some of which still held their silky substance inside partially opened pods. He even found some unopened pods and opened them to see what the insides looked like. He picked a few to take to school to share with his classmates.

We’re often struck with pride in our son’s ability to notice beauty in places that other folks may overlook. God’s intricate creation is every bit as wonderful as his expansive creation.
