About the word Shekinah

The word Shekinah (shuh-kigh-nuh) means dwelling. It refers to the visible manifestation of the presence (or Shekinah Glory) of God. A luminous cloud. It is the very presence of God on earth. (see Holy Bible-Exodus 24:9-18)

"Idaho Graffiti"

We recently went up to our little mountain town of Idaho City, to go sledding and I thought this was humorous. We saw several writings in the snow. Being a San Diego, California transplant, I'm not too fond of graffiti. I've seen the bad side of it. I can appreciate this kind of graffiti, though. No lasting damage, nothing inappropriate, just the team spirit of a small town. So, now you've seen Idaho Graffiti. Just another reason I love our wonderful state.

"Icicle Arches"

This past weekend, my husband took me shooting. I really wanted to find some icicles. Well, we were successful, as you can see. I took several shots from different angles and with different backgrounds. I got many different looks. I like this one because of the arches.

"Faded Glory"

I created this photo, of my father's Navy memorabilia (that I secretly "borrowed"), to make a special gift for my mother. The faded flag that I used for the backdrop once belonged to her late father.

I am intentionally posting this on January 8th. because today would have been his birthday, had he not died in 2001. I take solice in the fact that I will see him again in Heaven someday.

I enjoyed doing this still life. I had a good time setting it all up, shooting, re-arranging the items, and shooting again until I was pleased with it.

I am thankful to my father for serving our family and our country and I hope this little tribute does him justice.

I love and miss you, Dad!
Your "littlest daughter,
