At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!



i was coming out of the grocery store the other day when i happened to look across the street at the old anglican church ... i loved the image i saw ... i ran for my camera before the shadows and light changed ... cool, eh!

Song of Solomon 4:6..."Until the day break and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense."

I so enjoyed reading a few of your more recent posts. It's been a while since I've paid you a visit. So retirement is upon you? Your little town is sure springing back to life after the long winter. May you enjoy the sunshine on your face and the breeze at your back as you ride your bike enjoying God's nature :)
