The fleur de lis is a symbol of Bourbon France. It is also a stylized cross. In our yard, it is a shape that graces the tops of each of our iron fence posts. Among other things, the fleur de lis symbolizes what might be called the flower of life.
In this image there are several fleur de lis, in shadow form, cast upon the stone of our patio. By these, I am reminded of the One who would give even hearts of stone new life, and that life abundant; the One for Whom this day is set apart.
It's the Lord's Day. Happy Sunday!
Soli Deo Gloria!
BAD NEWS happens...
Kind of a tough day for me. Saturday morning, we got up to find our big glass sliding door open and a couple of muddy footprints on the floor. We'd had an overnight intruder. What initially seemed missing was just a container of orange juice from the fridge and we felt violated, but didn't get all weird about it. Last night, it hit me that something major was missing. I went to the spot where I kept my camera backpack in that part of the house. And to my horror it was gone. My Nikon D50, three lenses, five filters, miscellaneous other stuff, plus my Pentax point and shoot. All gone. Todaywe will file a police report. Felt stupid to do it Saturday over the orange juice. But not over the camera(s).
Trying to pull something good out of all of this, it's just stuff and nobody got hurt. But I have to admit feeling pretty sick inside about somebody stealing my Nikon. Plus to replace it will be a pretty hard financial hit. I'll have to think about that a bit.
And minus any cameras, VF will definitely be posting from the old archives for a while.
