Blog Your Blessings Sunday


If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther


I saw this compass symbol down on a business building near the Columbia River and even tho it has no direction letters on it, I recognized it as a compass. Today, I was hunting through old but recent photos that I have taken in order to find one to illustrate my blessing this week and it seemed a perfect fit. (My new camera which I took this photo with stopped working -- can't get the lens to open.)

Not only does it have 4 directions to choose for making personal choices but the center looks like a cross representation to me also. But, it's an empty cross -- a cross that reminds me to look to the ressurected Jesus for direction as I live my Christian life. My blessing is the reminder that I have "new life living in my heart" because I believe.

This is not a great photo of the cross, filled with flowers from last Sunday's "Festival of Flowers" service but the best I could take because it was raining and they hadn't moved the cross to the lawn yet.

Compasses, like crosses, offer direction. A pleasant merging of images and concepts. Thanks.

A very good little use of imagery and metaphor! Great thoughts and images!

It is difficult to judge your pics are better or your thoughts related to them.

Thanks for the Blessings.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
