TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART

Flutterbies

P1060438_edited-1

Tread lightly

for ย the wings of angels

flutter by our souls

as we plod on

in our own worlds

often unawares

of the Heaven inside us

because of the Hell of our thoughts.

      • Thank you SO very much for your kind words!! They mean a lot to me, especially since I so admire your work on your blog. Your photography is so amazing in its own right but especiallly given you are blind!! God must really be guiding you. And I didn’t know your wife was also blind. What an awesome love! My husband and I are both Asperger’s so we share that disability, plus I have Bipolar thrown in. But you both are an inspiration to me, and with your dog, the “first family” of the blogosphere!

      • Awww thanks so much for liking my photos and always giving me encouragement!
        I’m so blessed to have such an amazing wife , who’s compassionate, understanding and love builds me up daily, i think this can blossom much more when you both share a disability too. Thanks for sharing a little about you and your husband and i continually pray for you both!
        Sadly Bruce (our furry angel) died over a year ago, but i love how he can still bring smiles and inspiration to others through my photos! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Thanks again for being such a loving sister to me.

      • Oh, I am sorry about Bruce. We lost our angel 13 years ago. I agree about love deepening when husband and wife share a disability. I am adding you and your wife to my daily prayers and I thank you for praying for us. I was so touched when you called me a loving sister and think, too, of you as a loving brother. I lost my blood brother two years ago so there is a hole in my heart.
