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)

"Back to the Future"

On January 19th. we went to see "August Rush." Great movie btw, once you get past the whole premise.
Anyway...we arrived early and while we waited, we wandered into an antique shop next to the theatre. We had a great time looking around and the "kids" (our two girls and a friend) ended up trying on all the old hats. I was so upset that I didn't have my camera with me, as I almost always do.

I then remembered that my phone has a camera. Okay, it's not a very good camera, but it did capture this wonderful moment. They all so naturally turned toward me and I love the looks on all their faces. If I had my good camera with me and tried to set up this shot, it probably wouldn't have worked so well. Sometimes the best shots are the ones you don't plan and this was one of those shots.

Our girls are growing up so fast and I love the fact that this picture reminds me of the past, yet shows me how close they are to their futures. It is truly bitter-sweet. I remember them playing dress up when they were little and they continue to do so with AKB Productions as they film and act. You can see some of their work at http://www.youtube.com/AKBProductions.
I thank the Lord for photography and that through the years, I've been able to capture the special moments that capture me.
