Double Meaning

The Abbey Facade
2007

My iTunes: How Great Is Our God by Bethany Dillion

This shot has double meaning for me. Please click on it to see the beautiful detail. I took this at Westminster Abbey while we were living in London. This is one of my favorite places to visit across the pond. I think while we were there I went on tours about 8 times. The architecture is stunning and all the history had me going back again and again because I could never learn it all.

The first meaning in this photo for me is about the search our family is going through right now. We are in the process of searching for a church. Not an easy thing to do as you transition back into a new life but a vitally important decision for us to make this process much easier for our whole family. The good thing is I know God has planned where we will end up and so I can relax a bit. What a relief!

On a TOTALLY different note....

The second meaning has to do with my new favorite show these days. I just realized Comcast has the Showtime series THE TUDORS on On Demand for free (and it is edited...thank goodness). Have any of you seen it? I am SO hooked on it. I love history! Dont get me wrong, it is historical but takes A LOT of creative freedoms. The show is about King Henry VIII and his reign, his wives, and his relationship with the Catholic Church through many years. I watch it while searching on google all the characters in history to learn more about them. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Bend It Like Beckham & Mission Impossible III) plays the King and is amazing.

Anyway, hope you all have a great week!

This shot is exquisite! I am using my husband's computer instead of my laptop tonight. He has this mongo screen, so much better to see all those little curls and things!

I've been watching The Tudors, too! Love history, especially English history.

Love, Linda

Sensational! The detail is magnificent. You could shoot that a hundred times and always see something different.

I love that photo. We looked through our Europe photos again today and also saw someone else's pics from Europe. I miss it so much! Hope you can find a church soon, Anna.

isn't it great to have that reassurance that it's all in His hands? all we need to have to go with it is patience.

Oh, I've been away from reading blogs for a few days, and I need to tell you that your photos are all so wonderful.

Yet another place I would love to see in person. I'm not sure my wife would make it more than one or two days with me in London, or any old city in Europe. She would be patient, but I realize a person can watch another person take pictures and read historical notes for only so long.

Fantastic shot Anna. I think its awesome you could go on the tours so many times. You have a very inquisitive mind.
Have seen the previews for the Tudors but haven't watched the series.
In God's time and plan He will show you the perfect church for all of you. Not that the church will be perfect but that it will meet your needs.

One of the hardest parts of relocating is finding a new church home. When you find it, you will know.

Beautiful photo.
