In the dirt

Butterfly in the dirt – Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4, September 21, 2020

Broken, wounded, lifeless, down in the dirt— where few people seem to care to sit with those who are broken-hearted and hurting. I lie here trying to survive, wondering if I will ever be revived. I know in Him I have hope yet it seems impossible. I try to keep breathing and trusting in God to carry me through.

This photo was taken on a warm evening when I was struggling intensely. All I could think to do was go outside and walk up and down our driveway for a couple hours. I was terrified what might happen or what I might do if I didn’t make an effort to just keep walking. I grabbed my camera and tried to notice whatever caught my eye and take a few pictures. This tiny butterfly laying in the gravel on our driveway was one thing that I noticed and decided to capture that evening.
