A Tale of Spring Hues this Easter Weekend

“Here is the amazing thing about Easter; the Resurrection Sunday for Christians is this, that Christ in the dying moments on the cross gives us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible.”    – T.D. Jakes

“The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.”    – Henry Knox Sherrill

Autumn & a Walk Around Biltmore Estate

I’m experimenting with a new plugin to add my watermark automatically when I upload photos to my blog library- I like that it saves me a ton of time and that I can size and position it anywhere I want. I don’t like that there are only a few fonts to choose from. You’d think that the designers of these of these things would realize that people posting a lot of photos are visual folks who are going to want a humungous selection of fonts! And even the option to easily hand-write our own autograph… anyway, this is what it is for now. I’m also about to experiment here with a new gallery plugin- so here goes- Happy Autumn!:

Believing is Seeing
