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.

When Beauty Fades Grace Remains

 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Matthew 6:28-30
