Hope Never Fades

My mother passed away in September. My daughter lifted this rose in memory from the graveside casket. The rose itself fades, memories remain, and hope lives on for the believer in Jesus Christ.

The rose also demonstrates something new for me. I experimented with a new lens; a Nikkor 85mm macro and processed each photo with Adobe Lightroom.

Ice covers everything outside today, so it was a good day to experiment a little.Natural window light. Foam board background. I was pleased, and mom loved flowers. She would love it too.

Praise to God for a Living Hope

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

    I am sorry for your loss. I lost my mom 4 years ago to cancer. I don’t think I could have handled it if I didn’t have the hope that physical death in this world is not the end. I cling to God’s promises to His children and know that my mom is in a far better place. I have so many family members waiting for me when I pass from this world to the next, it’s going to be a great time of reunion! May our Father comfort you and your family in this time with the joy and hope of a future reunion with your loved one.
