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)

"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,
