Photo and caption by Kristin Barnes
The bird flying through the lens at the time of this sunrise photo was an incredible surprise when I reviewed the image. My life for the previous few years was marked by a significant amount of struggle. When I viewed the image, it didn't feel like coincidence - it felt like Divine Timing. I was overcome by an incredible wave of gratitude as if the photo was a pictorial representation of a Blessing and validation that I so badly needed.
