Right now I am so in need of some bright colours,so I decided to do something about that.
I went back into Jake's slide scans and picked five of my favourite flower pictures.
Most of these have been posted on this blog before,but I feel they are worth sharing again.
In my opinion,Jake had a good eye for composing flower shots.
OK,maybe I am just a little biased,but I think I have that right.
Looking at these images brings back wonderful memories,of time spent together and a precious love that we shared.
I would not be able to choose just one favourite,but this first one would come close to that.
I love the back lighting.
Actually Jake loved taking that kind of picture and often encouraged me to try it.
The gently and delicate beauty of a Wild Columbine is seen here.
Look at this,another back lit picture.
These Tulips were growing in our own garden.
Daisies! I love Daisies in all colours.
Again,this was on our yard.
Two things I wish for right now.
One would be to have Jake at my side again,but I know that is not possible.
Perhaps,he is even closer than that.He is in my heart with all the memories I have.
I remember telling him,during the last weeks,that I had a heart full of memories,which would help me through the tough times.
Besides the memories is the assurance that God is leading me,yes,even carrying me through these days.
The other thing I wish for right now is no less possible.SPRING.
This year the winter feels much longer than usual.
I know it is not,and that it is my circumstances that make it feel that way,but I am so ready for spring.
Thought for today:
Whatever our problems,
Our troubles and sorrows,
If we trust in the Lord,
There'll be brighter tomorrows.
