Personal Reflections: My Photos and Prayers

Vintage bible with rosary necklace on top


The light

as I attempted to

capture the beauty

around me.

Vintage prayer book with rosary


Though I’m not Catholic,

I collect old rosaries

and prayer books like

this child’s one.


The idea these objects

were kept and grasped

by the faithful

moves me

in ways I can’t explain.


‘They have counted all My bones’

means something to me.


If you have suffered,

it may mean something to you too.


Give us this day

our daily bread prescriptions.


Just keepin it real this morning.


A lovely prayer.


Physically I have been frail

for many years.


Inside is something different.

So I can smile.



by me.

Peace to you right where you are.
