Happy May Day everyone! I was just surfing around the web a bit and I landed at PDW, which I do about 20+ times a day. I thought I might look in the gallery and make a few comments on some of the gorgeous layouts there and then take a peek at some of the comments that have been made on some of my own layouts. Well, I was totally surprised to see that one of my layouts has been nominated for GSO (gallery stand out)! What a warm and welcome surprise that was! This is the layout…
This is one that I created with “Plum Crazy About You”. So, Thank you, Mary for nominating my layout for April GSO!
Now, I am looking at some of the other layouts and the comments that have been made and a comment on this layout catches my eye. I created this layout for the “One Little Word” challenge for April and posted it yesterday. Yes, I was cutting it close!
So, the comment tells me what a nice photo this is but then I am asked, “Is that a photo of your own Bible?”. I wasn’t sure what to think and I have no way of answering her question except to send her a private message, which I have decided not to do. I will, however, answer the question here… No, it is not a photo of my own Bible. The photo came from Pixels and is royalty free. I chose to use this photo because, well, it just fit.
I do, however, have a Bible. As a mater of fact, I have several and I do turn to them at least once a day for support and encouragement in whatever I am doing or plan to do. There is one that I am most fond of and it is the one that I usually pick up as it is on the desk right here beside me. THIS is a photo of that Bible.
So, why am I posting this? I WANT everyone to know that I am a Christian. I am NOT ashamed of who I am or what I am. I also want you all to know that it doesn’t matter that it was not a photo of MY OWN bible. What matters is that I wasn’t ashamed to create a layout of a Bible and post it.
