I have a friend who currently is in so need of these words. It's unbelievable how timely your prayer is. My friend is a God-fearing woman who loves the Lord. She is experiencing some emotional pain at this time… I'm certain your words will provide some much needed comfort.

Glad you are far more optimistic than I. All there seems to be is darkness coming out of the region south of where you and the lovely Barbara live. I am not very optimistic.

My brother shared this with me this morning, and I instantly thought how the tulips and your lighting resemble a painting by one of the old Dutch masters. The words brought me to tears, exhausted as this present world is. Thank you for your beautiful tulips.

I always look forward to your photo prayers. This one is particularly elegant and lovely. Thank you for your ministry!

Your poem and the photograph were just what I needed this morning. And tulips are the flowers that I love the best because as they age and die, they do not merely fade, but show forth a new and different beauty with every change in the shape of their stems and the colour of their petals. They are beautiful to the end. God bless you,

Very nice. Have you ever thought about starting a greeting card line with some of your photo poems This would be a wonderful "Thinking of You!" card. [THE AUTHOR REPLIED] Yes, I printed a thousand cards a few years back. Half were purchased by Westminster Presbyterian Church here in Delaware. I still have some left. I should print more, with new images, and give people a chance to buy them.]

So lovely Danny. Your note at the end of the prayer sent me back to view the image and read the prayer again several times.
