Fort Yargo State Park and a Different Church
Since yesterday was Easter Sunday, and I’m a Christian belonging to The First Church of No Sect in Particular, I decided to attend a different kind of church today. God is everywhere around us and inside of us, and since I can go anywhere on earth to commune with the Lord, I headed to Fort Yargo State Park, in Winder, Georgia.
My agenda was two-fold. For Christmas, my husband bought me a Nikon Coolpix S6000 digital camera, and I’ve been amazed at the incredible pictures that it takes. Notice I didn’t say anything about the pictures that I take, because I’m a really BAD photographer. I know little about lighting, angles, shutter speed, etc. I always have problems with cropped out faces, and any good pictures I’ve taken in the past have been flukes.
Before yesterday, I’d never been to Fort Yargo State Park, and I wanted to take some nature pics, so off my husband and I went to check it out. I wasn’t imagining that my photography would win any awards, but I thought I could get some nice shots. I also had my time with the Lord while I was there, because I feel closest to him when I am out amongst his most beautiful creations. I can’t think of a better place for that than the forest.
I don’t have to sit in a pew in a church to worship God, and my church congregation is everyone I know. Fellowship is amongst friends intimately discussing interpretations of scripture, and everyone is my brother or sister. My tithes are made to places like St. Jude’s hospital –not a “building fund” or other such rubbish.
