On a Highway of Usefulness

Recently, I have come to fully accept my lifelong role as temporary custodian of our family treasures from the past.  Whether they be tattered and torn photographs or yellowed documents with an ancestor’s handwriting, this inward pull to document and preserve exits.  Just as I have been given the privilege to personally handle such cherished possessions, I now am compelled to preserve them for those to follow.

“Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.  “Be still” they say.  Watch and listen.  You are the result of the love of thousands.” (author unknown)

Consequently, Corinthrose is taking an indefinite break.  I am yielding to this lofty aspiration of preserving life on whatever path it takes me, both past and present.

I have been blessed beyond measure by your virtual presence, and I pray in some small way you have also.  Thank you to those who have encouraged and supported me these past three years of blogging.  You know who you are!

Now this doesn’t mean my photography will go by the wayside…oh no!  So take a look at www.corinthrose.com every now and then.

Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever.  Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21
