Title: It’s a Slow Fade

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana

Description: Well the name for this one is actually inspired by a great song by Casting Crowns. Back in the day Casting Crowns was the biggest contemporary Christian band in the US, but it seems like they have gone behind the scenes now that they aren’t coming out with as much music, but anyway, this song is about the “Slow Fade” of the human condition. It says that people never crumble in a day, and it’s the second glances toward sin and the bad thoughts that invade our mind that slowly turn us down a path that we don’t want to go. Such an amazing song… Here is the link to the song if you would like to listen to it: Slow Fade by Casting Crowns. And below are the lyrics if you would like to read through them, or glance at them while you listen. 🙂

Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray 
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray 
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you’re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see

Alright if you have made it this far then I will tell you why this picture is named “Slow Fade.” See, this plant is growing outside of my dorm, and this is what it looks like now that it is winter. It is slowly dying, and the original color is slowly fading, but it’s taking a long time. Eventually though, this plant will die… But it will be renewed during the Spring! Oh happy day! 😛 Hope you enjoyed this picture and this post! Thanks for reading!
