I’ve been meaning to place this scripture on a photo that would best depict it’s meaning and beauty for several months. The Lord has done something in my life that is nothing short of miraculous. I was in a deep, dark place for a long time. While I won’t share details, just know that when you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, whether you’re in that valley for days, weeks, months, or years, God promises to be there right with you, and bring you up out of the depths, and restore your life again!
The lilly in this photo was the only lilly and the only flower in full bloom along the walkway in my housing development. There were no other flowers around it—just green shrubs and weeds. So naturally I stopped to photograph it. It took me a long time to get the perfect shot because I was using my 40 mm macro lens, which will produce a blurred image with the slightest bit of camera shake. But lo and behold, I was able to get a gorgeous shot in full focus. Enjoy!
