The Light

John 8:12

"...Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Stephen, gorgeous picture, beautiful verse. Could not find better ones to go together! The inspiration I needed this AM.

Great combination of the chosen verse and picture. That shaft of light that you've caught is fab :-)

I was standing outside of the Main library the other night and looked up and down the street at a full moon. I was thinking that very verse as I experienced that phenomena.
I wish I had had a camera. Photography is such a beautiful art. Well done, my friend. Well done.

Lovely passage both words and photo. When I first saw this, my heart skipped a beat. It's gorgeous. Where was it taken, if I may ask?

Thanks. I'm happy that you like it. Click on picture and you can see more.

Thank you. It stopped me in my tracks when I saw it. The scene automatically made me think of heavenly thoughts. :)

Thank you.

Thank you. It's a good thing to keep your mind in the verses. It makes the day go by so much smoother.

Thank you. This photo was taken in Riverdale, MD at a park. The trail is called the Indian Creek Trail. It's in the same park as Lake Artemesia.

Hi Stephen,
It's the verse that gives God's gorgeous creation even more beauty. What a testimony.

I'd love to go walking in a place like that! I'd linger, smell leaves, stare at things.

See ya

Guess who's back???

What about those skin? Surviving too by the "skin" of their teeth with a last minute field goal..

In the Uzbac after what happened to Vick we can't even beat a college team and spend most of our time now watching Boston Sports teams dominate..

We are just another city only known for Gangsta Hip Hop Rappers and the busiest most craziest airport.

Take care player...

T Stephens-
Thank you. Yes, I felt that a scripture would work well with that.

Amen sis. I hope all is well. My wife asked about you.

*smile* That's what I did.

Hello. Yes, I took that pic in a part of Maryland that is not too far.

What's up brother! Long time. I don't even want to talk about those 'Skins. :) Good to see you back.

Congratulation for the picture. The ligting is gorgeous
I like the sentence too. Particukarly because "Lucie" my real Christian name means light.

Remember Stephen, one year ago...
Is your poem already published, I wonder ?

Lyrically speaking said...

Ahhhhhhhhhh, the peaceful, so inviting and that's what I appreciate about NY's autumn you get to watch the sun rise and say "Amen"
