scripture and a snapshot

My photo represents Jesus standing at the door of our hearts and knocking; desiring to have a personal relationship with us. The locked door represents many wasted years of my life, refusing to change, refusing to let Him in. I'm so grateful for his mercy and patience with me.

For more scripture and snapshot, head on over to Katie's. :-)
Have a wonderful Sunday!

I love this! I feel that way too sometimes, having converted as an adult.

I seriously love this - it really speaks to me. The photograph for me is really interesting because the door doesn't appear to be inviting...it's almost like the darkness of our lives spills out so that everything looks dark, and yet, there is Jesus saying come to me. What I think I failed to realize for so long is that the other side is so awesome, ya just gotta accept the invitation. :)

Great blog. Really like your photos. I have a blog (Family Fountain) with articles on family issues: marriage, parenting, healthy attitudes, spirituality, etc. I try to look for pictures to post to illustrate lessons I'm writing about. Do you allow pictures to be used if they link back to your blog with the credit? If you'd like, please visit the blog to see what you think.

Either way, great photos; great blog. Enjoyed the visit.
