Psalm 57:1



"Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast."

I am David in this scripture, begging for the Lord's mercy, pleading for refuge and asking for strength in my trials. The Lord is answering my prayers in so many ways. I am surrounded by amazing women who are available at all times for support and comfort. We had ward conference today and the Stake President's words spoke plainly to my heart. I'm guided to various conference talks and scripture passages that inevitably teach me something I need to know. I have been strengthened beyond what I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful for that.

Anyway, I took the kids to Temple Square right after church today. Anya loves the painting of the crucifixion and I wanted to take some photos of the Christus for this challenge. I started off on a different note and then, right before I left, took this photo of his hand. I wish I had taken more as this one is slightly out of focus. I had another photo of his face that I liked, but this one just spoke a little more strongly to me. CC

I like the shadow coming accross his hand. Very sweet. I didn't even know you could take pictures of the Christus...I'll have to keep that in mind.
