In the Pink

1-24-12

When I am blue,

there is healing in the pink.

When barbed darkness presses down,

 a crushing breath-taker,

I can look up to these ribbons of wonder,

remembering redemption is nearer than I can imagine.

    The dog is probably thinking, “Hey, why are we stopping all the time on this walk?”

    Wonderful pictures, Lilly. You have a gift that I wish I had. Praying for Kelly’s leg.

  11. I know what you mean about it being hard to concentrate on something when you have that beauty above you. I tend to walk staring at the sky. My husband has gotten used to me tripping and falling because I get so engrossed by the sky.

I would love to hear from you!
