a light in the valley.

As we light a path for others, 
we naturally light our own way.

photo taken across the field, from my son Ian's house, 
in fernvale, tennessee..
the little church was completely obliterated by a tornado...
 that swept through this valley, a few years ago....
and here it is today...
 rebuilt...
and standing strong...
a little light in the valley.

happy sunday

Erin, the church is so sweet and you captured the light perfectly. We are getting a storm now from this heat. Needing the rain badly. xoxo, olive

Erin,
When you have a moment, come by my blog... On the sidebar there is an Angel painting titled
Eternal Light.

Her wings are covered in rose petals from my garden.. ... Take a peek... The medium seals as well as adhears the petals.
