Lord, I’m doing exactly what I know I shouldn’t. Thinking of the past. Writing about it. There’s so much that is wrong. So much that’s evil. Please help me forget, Lord. Please turn my mind and my heart to beauty. To love.

These are the tulips I’ve been photographing. They’re still in the vase, but so absolutely gone, with nothing left worth photographing. The pictures will live forever though…I hope. Thank you, God, for digital.

With the following photos I offer you all the best that God might want you to see in them – beauty, love, life, joy. I wish you all of these.
