52 Weeks Have Faith

52 week badge
What an appropriate assignment for this week since we are in the midst of Holy Week.
I love the season of Lent and had several ideas in mind for this week's photo. 

Unfortunately I've been so busy this week and today snuck up on me so quickly that I didn't get a photo.  And of course today is another gloomy day, making it difficult to take photos. So I'm sharing one that I took several months ago.
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.  ~Walter Raleigh
My husband and I were driving home one evening and I thought the sunset was so beautiful that I snapped a few photos as we drove along.  When we got home my husband noticed this telephone pole that looked a lot like a cross.   I didn't even notice this  while I was taking the photo because the sun was so bright. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Blessings to you this Easter.

Great photo! It's amazing what appears when we are not looking!

Oh Alice, that is such a beautiful shot and the cross "appearing" to you later, so inspirational! I think I would have to frame that.

I have noticed since buying my (first ever!) camera last July, Alice, it really does capture things unseen by our eyes. Thank you so much for sharing this inspiring pic in anticipation of the Easter morn!

That's a splendid (albeit unintentional :) ) picture - love it! Back in Romania (where I grew up) we have a huge cross built on top of one of the mountains - on a crisp day you can see the cross from over 100 km away (the city I lived in is that far and we could see the cross). It is one of the most beautiful images I keep with me!

Great photo. It's funny how God quietly shows himself to us when we aren't looking. Diane

Awesome photo. Lovely how things appear to us when we're not really looking, isn't it?!

So sorry you haven't been feeling well! I bet if you ask the AJE team about the next group they'd be fine with that - I think they just want to see us all playing with their beads :)
