This time of year we are especially blessed to be in the midst of God's glory. It is all around us, filling our senses and renewing our spirits. I tried to captured a little of it with my camera a couple of days ago, but, of course, you can't really capture the true essence of His glory in pictures. I wish you could have been with me to see it "in person."
I was at the Old Court House Museum in Vicksburg, which is at its most beautiful this time of year when the dogwoods are blooming. The Old Court House is one of my favorite places in Vicksburg, and I loved just walking around the grounds, taking it all in.
The dogwoods were resplendent (the only word that comes to mind to describe them) ...
their profuse white blossoms almost blinding in the noontime sun.
As beautiful as the dogwoods were, my favorite picture of the day was found under the branches of this old Camellia bush ...
The camellia petals were shedding and lay amongst a bed of violets ...
I wish you many happy days filled with an abundance of God's glory.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
