the last goodbye is coming soon at least sooner than i every knew trusting that the Light behind me will be above me beneath me before me all around me still walking on this road with you still leaving shadows behind don’t want to be swallowed up by all the wrong the things i said the things i’ve done in Your love those shadows flee they are gone in the Light of Your love this life is long and yet we know the yesterdays are longer still a line called life stretches behind me so i'm making a new yesterday today looking before me along the way faith and hope and love will stay so let me walk along this road to the Light in the Light this burden is light with You behind me above me beneath me before me inside me all around me
by a st lucia road
I enjoyed taking a 2.5 mile walk on my recent trip to St. Lucia, mostly because it was much easier than taking the 2.5 mile run! The volcanic island of Saint Lucia is more mountainous than many other Caribbean islands, so you are almost constantly going up or down, making running a bit more challenging that running here in the plains of the Mid West.

gotta love the Midwest
5 Mile Bridge
Before I post a couple of portraits I wanted to share another shot of what has become a favorite spot of mine to photograph. I have posted other images of 5 Mile Bridge here, and here. I have been riding my bicycle quite a bit this year, and this bridge is about 14 miles from my house. This bridge – and the barns nearby – is special to me. I love the sense of history and forgotten tales that I find here. The old barns particularly point back to days when the prairies were a little younger, and life a bit simpler. I use this bridge to remind me that I have committed to pray for a family, so, it has become a kind of sanctuary on my journey. Finally, it’s the whole process of riding that I just love: seeing the country go by, the wonder of how a familiar place can take on such varying characteristics and feel so different as the weather and seasons change, and yet remain familiar, and therefore somewhat comforting, each time I visit. And that’s enough of my musings for today…
