What a gorgeous, gorgeous photograph. And now I’m longing for my cup of tea and my time in the sun on the sideporch.
(Aside: I tagged you, Dear.)

Oh Ann, I was just blessed by this passage last week as well! I wrote out a whole excerpt from it alongside some photos of the kids I took down by the river (http://prairieprologue.blogspot.com/2008/08/winsome-wednesday-down-by-riverside.html). I just got goosebumps when I read it here alongside your picture, so beautiful and such a blessing!
This is a msterpiece of photography!
Tell me, have you posted before about your scripture journal? ( I assume that is what is lying next to your scriptures??) If so, please give us the links; I want to keep one myself but don’t know where to start . . . .
LL: I’m only just now getting to the comments after hosting the French girl for two weeks…the photograph was real, not staged. I was sitting there and saw the light streaming across like that. I left it unretouched. I hope you had a lovely quiet moment in the sun, and I’ve got to hope over and see what I’ve been tagged for!
Prairie Chick: I’m only just now catching up with comments — I haven’t been to your link yet, so I’m hopping over to check out your insights into that very verse. What timing! I love that…how the Holy Spirit can tie people together even on the Internet.
ladonnamobile: As I mentioned to LL, that photo was real and unstaged. I was sitting at the table “scribing” http://annkroeker.wordpress.com/2008/03/06/quiet-time-round-up/ (I also use that time to practice handwriting; mine is illegible, so I’m following my kids’ Handwriting Without Tears cursive style as I hand-write the passages from Mark), and noticed the sun streaming down and the window dividers making those slanted crosses. Can you believe it? The only thing I did was scoot my Bible over. It was to the left when I noticed. I scooted it above the journal and snapped.
It was only later, in the shower, that the verse came to mind. It was a lovely moment alone before the day began; a gift.
THAT is a beautiful image…lovely…
