Angels

Angel

Angels have been mentioned throughout history and depicted in art, sculptures, stained glass and many other creative expressions across the millenniums. Regardless of your personal beliefs, they can be found in many cultures and religions. They are most seen as messengers or protectors sent to help you even when you cannot see them. They have been a favorite image to capture from the very beginning of my photography days. Since I can’t take a picture of a real angel, I capture them where ever I find them. I haven’t really shared them much with others until now. I hope you enjoy my collection of angels that I post. Here is the first one. I would love to hear from you if you love angels too. Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

 A Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

                                               Lord make me an instrument of Your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon,

Where there is doubt, faith,

Where there is despair, hope,

Where there is darkness, light,

   and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much

seek to be consoled, as to console,

To be understood, as to understand,

To be loved, as to love,

For it is in giving that we receive and

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

If this prayer speaks to you, please feel free to share. Thank you for visiting today.  ~ terre

Terre’s Blog – Journal

 

 

Today is Friday and moving right along with the seasons. This is also my first journal entry in Terre’s Blog – Women of All Seasons. The world still remains primarily in shutdown and non-travel mode which is hard on everyone. Being home more though, has probably put me more in touch with my local nature, more so than other years. We even noticed the day that our tiny hummingbird friends took off for their sunny, warm vacation lands. They were so very entertaining as they guarded their feeders and sometimes flew up looking in the windows.

Even though I love Fall, the changing color of the leaves, pumpkins, apple cider, and warm sweaters; I find it bittersweet to say goodbye for another year to the gifts of this summer. This summer was the first time that our tomatoes did so good that we actually had green tomatoes on the roof of the house! We had never seen that ever here in Indiana. But I guess these gifts  gives us more reasons to look forward to summer again next year. When it comes to Fall though, I don’t think I would make a very good tree. For I’m sure that I would have an argument about having to change colors knowing that I would have to then be bare, even if I would be beautiful first.

On another note, I still keep plugging away with my blog, though I haven’t been able to figure out SEO and some of the analytics that just don’t make sense. I so appreciate all my followers and readers that have been hanging in there with me on this learning journey as I try to get better.

Here are just a few images of the last of summer. Enjoy ~

 Crisp cooler breezes,

a sense that Autumn is near,

colored hues emerge.

Photography

tch c2020 (3)

With all of this staying home stuff, I’ve had some extra time to start looking through some of my older images. This was taken more than a few years ago (2007) when I was contemplating whether I wanted to venture into digital photography. Yes, I can hardly believe that something that I love now was met with having to be dragged… kicking and screaming into the new age. I so loved my Minolta SRT101 at the time, which by the way I still have keeping company on the shelf. You know just in case I may need again someday. So being cautious about my investment, I bought an inexpensive FinePix A340 just to give it a go. By now, I had almost forgotten about this camera until I pulled up the file information on my computer linked to this image.

This jellyfish was shot on a quick road trip stop at the Atlanta Aquarium. I was greatly surprised by this image that was captured. Just proof that some fun things can happen even when you are first learning and really don’t know what you are doing. That is not to say that I have stopped learning as that will never happen. So keep on shooting and happy exploring, but with camera in hand.

Sunday

By patient endurance you will save your lives. (1)

Probably like many of us, I’ve turned to my Bible and prayer even more these days. I came across this verse in my readings and thought that maybe it would speak to you too. Today is sunny at times, blustery winds, and just a good day to reflect. If you can maybe you will get out and take a walk, enjoy some fresh air and nature. Hope your Sunday is one of calm and peace.
