Journey to Calvary ...



“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’”
                   ~ Billy Graham
                          ~ 1918-2018
 A wooden Cross draped in purple for Lent stands outside Friedens United Church of Christ, Slatington, Pennsylvania on a March morning, reminding all who see it of the sacrifice Christ made for us.

Southern Grace ...




“The South …
Our tea is sweet
Words are long
Days are warm
And faith is strong.”
       ~ Unknown

The warm sun of late October shines on Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church on Squire Pope Road, Hilton Head Island on a gorgeous autumn day in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.

Irish Blessings ...


"An Irish Prayer"

May God give you ...

For every storm, a rainbow

For every tear, a smile

For every care, a promise

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share

For every sigh a sweet song

And an answer for each prayer.

 

The autumn sunshine of a gorgeous Indian Summer day
smiles on St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Belvidere, New Jersey.
The shamrock windows give a touch of an Irish blessing, with a
beautiful statue of Jesus Christ with his arms outstretched above them.

The cornerstone of this quaint, picturesque church at
327 Greenwich Street was laid in 1891.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on 
the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

An Evening Reflection ...


"As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God."
                                                                      ~  Psalm 42, Verse 1 

Beautiful white-tailed deer doe takes a drink in the creek on a waning
summer evening in the park.

I've been blessed to photograph this doe and and her fawns for more than three
years, and it's a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.

Winter Inspiration

"Even if I knew that tommorrow the world would go to pieces, 
I would still plant my apple tree."
                                         ~ Martin Luther 

Jerusalem Western Salisbury Church, Allentown, Pennsylvania, is an
inspiring sight in the late day sun on a recent winter afternoon. This
quintessential country church was founded in 1741.

A Winter Peace

"Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth
plants something in his soul."
                                                          ~ Thomas Merton

I always the sight of a picturesque country church, especially in the snow.
This is Jordan Evangelical Lutheran Church, Orefield, Pennsylvania
on a recent winter afternoon. The church was established in 1734.
