Inside the Sanctuary

As I was walking the grounds of this Christian university, I found beautiful crosses to photograph. It was a Saturday and I decided to see if the chapel was open. Why not. The front door was unlocked, so I entered. There was another set of doors to enter into the…

Everyday Crosses

I spotted this cross while watching a video recently. The cross appeared for just a few seconds and the image registered instantly. I had to collect it. The scene was in a horse stall….the beauty of the sunlight streaming in- a cross formed bringing light into the darkness. It made…

To Feel Alive

I pause to take in this photo with my sister (right, age 3) and I (left, age 2). What captured my attention is the look on our faces. The emotion - the joy, the smiles, the bouncing hair from dancing. This is Alive. What does it take for us as we…

My Father’s Words

"Rest brings restoration."- words given to me by my Father. Have you ever received a few words that bring an immediate change in perspective? These did for me. In the summer of 2007, after a cycling accident brought many weeks of forced downtime from my active lifestyle, my patience was…

Sweet Faith, Sweet Jean

What starts small can grow, filling you up completely and renewing life, giving a new direction. I know this. It happened to me. Of course, at the time I started, I didn’t know this, but just listened to an inner calling. Taking a step brought a complete change of focus. …

Faith of Abundance

When I first started posting cross photos on Instagram this past fall, I thought I would do so once or twice per week. That seemed doable. Yes. And then, somehow, it naturally turned into five times/week. Along the way I wondered if I had enough photos of crosses - the…

The Road of Faith

The road ahead. It’s not always the easy path. But in life, for your ONLY life, why not take the chance? It takes persistence and a steadfast focus to listen to the beat in your heart. And to then follow that beat! And it most definitely takes faith. It’s your…

Raised Up Faith

This little raised cross. Torn marks cut deep all around leaving scars like I’ve felt in life.  But it doesn’t define me. The cross within me remains the stronger beat. "Raised up, reclaimed, repurposed, redefined, rejuvenated...stronger for the marks. That is how good the Cross is. Redeemed." I’ve learned that…
