Photo Challenge....

This photo challenge is about communication..

It is hosted by Cindra at Knits & Pics & Favorite Things. She is the first link on my favorites.

My photos are from a memory jar that Robin from Thrifty Miss Priss made me.

It was after John had passed. And she went through my blog and wrote out all of these cards from the comments that people had left me. When I received this jar in the mail. I cried. I was overwhelmed that someone would care enough to make such a labor of love for me.

The first picture has a comment from Deb at Vintage Moon Studio: The most fervent prayers are being lifted for you dear one & your family..

We communicate our deepest needs to God through prayer..

The second shot is of a card that has a quote from Donna at Made in Heaven: Go forward with Courage, When you are in Doubt be still & Wait.

I titled this photo Friendship.

We communicate our lives and who we are through friendships we develop on this earth. When we are in need how many times do we get a comment that lifts us from our darkest days. Or a phone call.. Or a friend drops by just to say hello. God gives us friends as a way to keep us close to Him..

We communicate by loving others. By being kind, and loving we change lives...Our love of others speaks louder than we realize.

Faith... We communicate through our faith. There is nothing I respect more than someone who has a true Faith.
Hope you all have a great weekend...

these are great Nita...I think these are my absolute favorite, because everything you said is true, we do communicate our deepest needs to God through prayer and these little notes touched my heart...I think I even see one from me...and these pictures remind me of school day notes being passed by best friends and love notes tucked away...very, very sweet.

everything that written is so true, and I agree with Joni when a friend need's prayer we do communicate through prayer, I love to "chit chat" with God, sometime's I wonder if he thinks I'm rambling, but then I am just reminded that's the kid in me, after all I am his kid! I'm hoping you have a great week end dear friend and enjoy your time with your dad, take time and lot's of it and communicate with him, through word's, or through touching, or by gazing in his eyes, or just sitting beside him, just enjoy him. BIG HUG'S to you!

Wow! Love them all. You truly fulfilled the communication theme. What a thoughtful gift that was from your friend. Truly a treasure.

Oh Nita, this was a gift from God himself sent through Robin. There is no doubt. What an angel!

Beautiful tribute to such an amazing gift :)

Brenda said...

Beautiful!! Love the photos of the bits of memories from your memory jar. What a wonderful and precious idea.54

Donna said...

That beautiful gift is now one that you have shared. Oh my goodness, that was such a touching and generous thing for you to do for us. If there was a gold medal for communication, you would have just won it decisively, my dear.

Now I must find a tissue...

Jeanne said...
