Good day Don and Norm,
Thanks for starting the daily, Don. The photo that was selected for the Z6 book is really a winner. I am not sure if you shared that with us yet, it is a real eye catcher with beautiful curves and color.
You got me in the mood to add my artistic touch to one of my photos. I enjoy taking photographs of statues because they "come with" mood, passion, a story, expert posing, composition and they hold perfectly still.
Here is one of St. Francis. The prayer of St Francis is one of my favorite prayers and hope that you don't mind me sharing it with you along with this photo I took.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love with all my soul.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
