I am retired from PPG Industries, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am the mother of one child, a daughter and a grandmother of three. I have a ministry called Stand In The Gap where I make silk flower arrangments that are given for free to those sick in the hospital. I love to take photographs of people, places and things, to capture the joys, excitement and sometimes sorrows of life. I like to document my photos with information or historical facts, if possible. Sometimes I take photos in series to tell a story or show different sides of a subject. In my retirement years I would love to travel more, meet new people and photograph all aspects of life. I love to read, sew, make silk flower arrangements,listen to jazz and praise and worship music. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and strive to use the teachings of the Bible in my everyday walk through life. I hope this blog will cover my journey and be a source of inspiration to those who read or view the photos posted. I also made a Wordpress commitment to postaweek in December of 2011, that I wish to continue in the following year. To God the glory! Be Encouraged! Be Blessed!
