All Jesus did that day was tell stories—a long storytelling afternoon. His storytelling fulfilled the prophecy:
I will open my mouth and tell stories;Matthew 13:34-35 (The Message)
I will bring out into the open
things hidden since the world’s first day.
I skipped “Photo Friday” yesterday because I had what I considered to be an important piece of writing to share. It turns out very few people agreed! (But I’d still recommend taking a look: “An interesting evening and a dark haunting tale.”)
So this week we have “Photo Saturday” instead. This collection is a great example of how photographs tell stories. I will keep the stories very short!
- Me, coming out of Physical Therapy. Not a flattering shot, but I love the blue sky and – most especially. the fact that P.T. is proving to be an effective intervention. Hard work, promising results.
- Barking, London – 1932. Image from my cousin Christine (thanks, Chris). My grandma Lily must have been just over thirty. My mum – in the chair – is still an infant (born Sept 1931). Auntie Mary is the obviously vivacious seven-year-old. Grandad is goofing it up with a tennis racket. Uncle Norman (ten) must have been behind the camera.
- Craig and Naomi. Out with the children. Look how happy.
- Also from Naomi. David and Beks, so strikingly brother and sister. Look how beautiful.
- Getting ready for my MRIs. P.T. is helping, but they need more information. Knee, then knee again (my knee moved), then hip. A total of 45-mins in the tube. Very tense. Not fun.
- SCRABBLE: I try to have a game up and running at mum’s house all the time. Mum is a serious player; she doesn’t cheat on purpose!
- Grocery cart. Friday. This makes me think of Thanksgiving. A) Because our grocery bills never used to be this HUGE unless it was Thanksgiving week! B) Because I am thankful we can buy groceries. #Grateful
- Rebekah asked me to fix this chicken recipe. Lots of work; involved a unique marinade and a made-from scratch sauce that was amazing; resounding success.
- Max. Of course. Every Photo Friday needs more Max.
Have a wonderful weekend. Be thankful. Love well.
Peace and more – DEREK
