A Shadow of My Former Self

I want to Thank JF Owen for nominating me for The Liebster Award. Since he was correct on me giving a pass to the award I did want to Thank him for his kind and humbling comments and the nomination. In return I am re-blogging a post of his and encourage you to check out his place and buy his book Chara’s Promise. Excellent read.
Since last week was quite the ride, and I am behind on everything period, I hope to post some new captures later today I hope. Now to get some processing done on the photos I took as a second gun at a wedding last week. Till the next time, Peace.

I hope you’ll forgive me if I’m not my normal jovial self today.  I’m struggling to deal with some unanticipated guilt.  I’m a bit ashamed to talk about it, but I suppose that admitting my sin is the first step in starting the healing process.  Here goes.

I am a 57 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 26 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
