I will ...give thee for a light.....Isaiah 49: 6

I decided to do a self portrait next to my late mother's touch lamp that I inherited from her and used it for my main light source plus I had another smaller dressing table lamp on the other side in back of me.

I have a wall plaque with my mother's name, Helen and under the name on this plaque is the quote: Light.."I will... give thee for a light.." She brought a lot of light into my life and she touched many lives.

    Thank you all for your comments and votes..Since my other entry I didn't think
    fit the theme of reflection as strongly as it could have I decided to replace it....
    Susan, my clothes such as what I was wearing on this portrait I have been fortunate to find in thrift shops such as the beaded blazer..It was part of a set that went with a long gown...but I could not see myself buying the entire set so I just bought the top which was fine with the clerk as the clothes are donated to this store...The hat was from another thrift store that happened to have a donation of hats at that time..
