“Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” Psalm 85:10
The image of the scroll was taken during a recent shoot for a Bat Mitzvah. I paired a verse that I love from the Old Testament book of Psalms with the image of the scroll. As the words photographed are in Hebrew I have no idea what they actually say, but felt an Old Testament verse would be appropriate to accompany the image. I love the verse because it is beautiful and contains four words critical to overall happiness; words that I truly wish the world could live by.
“The bottom line is that (a) people are never perfect, but love can be, (b) that is the one and only way that the mediocre and vile can be transformed, and (c) doing that makes it that. We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” – Tom Robbins

The More Love, the Bigger the Heart.
The Bottom Line: Perfect or Not, Two Hearts are Better than One.
“Still, if you set your heart on God and reach out to him, If you scrub your hands of sin and refuse to entertain evil in your home, You’ll be able to face the world unashamed and keep a firm grip on life, guiltless and fearless. You’ll forget your troubles; they’ll be like old, faded photographs.” – Job 11:13-16 (MSG)
When I saw this Bible verse a week or so ago, I immediately thought about posting it. The question was how to do so. I decided to post an old photograph, that I did not take, in addition to an image I did take. It is probably obvious that the term – old, faded photographs in the verse caught my attention. However, the remainder of the verse has even more meaning. Words to take to heart. If only I could muster the strength of Job. He is a Biblical icon and a true inspiration of strength and faith.
An old faded photograph of my mother on her horse, Topaz. Needless to say I did not take this photograph. But, I found it quite appropriate to post with the verse above.
A photograph I recently took that, in black and white, looks old.
