This is the Weekly Photo ChallengeWe spend so much of our lives thinking back, or looking ahead, and even though a photo captures only one moment in time, with a bit of thought it can freeze the process of moving forward, or the promise of things to come. Your challenge this week is to seal one such moment in amber.

This is a picture of my two day old nephew being held by my 14 year old daughter.   When we witness such a miracle as new life, cynicism and fear are dispelled and are replaced by love and hope.   When one holds a newborn, time seems to stand still yet in one’s heart something awakens – a dawn of hope, an expectation, thoughts of bright prospects, blue skies, and blessed laughter.  New life – it holds the promise and hope of an adventure yet to come.

My beloved followers are probably laughing at me since I had mentioned that I was going to take a break.  Haha.  A week was good enough plus the photo challenges are terrific.   Thanks for following my blog!
