Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves,
stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you.. fear not, nor be dismayed; for the Lord will be with you. 2 Chronicles 20:16

The verse above is so comforting to me and it brings deep spiritual meaning to me right now in more ways than one. I was surprised to see the blue jay standing still like this today when I shot this picture through the window...It looked directly at me as though it could reach inside of my soul and read my thoughts. He reminded me of a sweet angel of light. It is though he is saying, "God is with you and the future is in His hands..."

I dedicate this page to Patty Gross, a former member here at JPG
who took her site down a few days ago...We miss her participation very much and I loved her work...truly an inspiration and a very nice lady...Patty stood true to her convictions and she lives by her faith...

    Thank you so much Andrea....and all of you for your great comments. I am back as of today. I suppose I missed all of you too much to stay away, so I've "come home."

    I can avoid the distasteful photos here without any problem. I have found that it is just as rampant on other site too, so I choose to be here with friends. :)
