I found this prayer online. I could not find an author associated with the words. This heartfelt prayer, I believe, is for all of us going through the pain of separation and divorce. The prayer is divided into three segments and fits my theme of The Beginning, The Journey, and The Joy. I think this prayer is the perfect motivation for strength, endurance, and peace as we begin our week.
I don't know where you are in this process. I hope you are healing.
Just remember you are not alone and
God promises that he will never leave us or forsake us.
I bought the Nikon Coolpix P510 because it is described as a "bridge camera". To me that means I can do a bit more manually then with my old point and shoot. I decided it was high time to get started in my attempt to understand more about digital photography. I went to a beginners class on Saturday to begin my adventure with my focus being on Aperture and Shutter Speed. I will start with Aperture. I find the f# confusing because in my mind they are backwards but I will have to get over it:-)
First off what is the definition of aperture? Here is what Destination Scuba has to say about it...
It is indicated by f stop numbers f1.4, f2, f2.8, f5.6 and so on.
Just to confuse us – the larger the aperture the smaller the f stop number f22 is a very small aperture, f5.6 is big.
This is the control of how much light reaches the image sensor in the camera and has a direct relation to shutter speed.Generally the larger the aperture the fa…
My Mom used to make the most amazing Banana Nut Bread. Moist and yummy. Sadly I do not have her recipe. Over the years I have tried to find one that was equal but have not been 100% successful.

I am finding on my travels that there are amazing murals to be found in nearly every town and city. I am going to start a new series called "Fun and Fabulous Murals."
The first mural I am going to highlight is the "Monsters" wall in downtown Raleigh NC. I had zero knowledge of this design until my daughter hired a photographer to take photos of her and the kiddos. It was suggested we go to the monster wall for some great shots. So off we went. The mural covers the entire side wall of a building. The contrast of the black and white made it a stunning work of art.
Here is what the news and observer had to say about the mural... "Graphic artist Kevin Lyons, in partnership with the Truth campaign and Vans shoes, put the finishing touches on a mural on the side of the Morgan West building, home to Trophy Brewing, on Thursday, December 3, 2015. Tobacco-free messages are worked into the painting. With about 100 of his signature monster faces, the 15’x40’ mural on …
