Day #3 of Countdown Week!!

The first thing those who have gift copies of "Seeking" do, is look through each of the pages with the color photos. I have been with friends and smile to see this happening. 

I was adamant about having color photos in hopes they would be a first spark of hope that the world is still full of color, and our personal world - though dimmed with challenges - will have a return to vibrancy. There is hope to climb out of a black and white focused time. As real as working through challenges is, turning toward the light of God's care is the best direction to choose.

All my photos are ones I have taken, but not all were taken during the writing of the book. I reached back into my archives of photos and found ones that were a perfect match with a devotional text message. Other writings required I take a new a photo. There are a few devotionals that were written because I saw an image, and it became the impetus for the text message.

The photo that images the cover design, as mentioned before, was taken when I was in Israel in 1979. As I look through my book, it has the added advantage of being a photo chronicle of many treasured times that have come into my life from that 1979 year onward. 

There is a section in the back of the book where each photo is given credit, location, and year it was taken so you can travel through my treasured times with a bit of a bonus look. 

Here are a few photos that are a part of the book. I will put their devotional's title with them and a quote from the text.  Enjoy! 

How Am I Dressing These Days?

 "Help me remember you are leading me toward being dressed in your splendor. Amen"


"Faith. Shadows. Both are gifts from God. Both are places where He dwells and invites me to enter in and share the security of a safe space with him"

Emmaus Eyes

"Christ endured brokenness so I can now walk with him. This reality truly gets my eyes opened. All else can fall into place, in his appointed time, as we walk together on the road that leads Home."

Serving the Lord with Gladness

Prayer: Lord, help me continue to make a joyful noise, praising you. Your faithfulness is known, received, cherished, and everlasting. Amen.


  1. I appreciate faith. shadows."safe space" beautiful photo

    1. Thank you, Cathy. It was a new insight as I wrote the devotional text to take a look at how the two (faith and shadows) could be in alignment

      I appreciate your comment!

  2. I especially love the path to Emmaus. Jesus said he goes before us---I'll meet you there. Running that path!

    1. Okay, Colleen - I think we have met along that road a time or two!
      Thanks for sharing here during this exciting time!
      Love, Lynn

  3. Sooooo gorgeous!! Loving this journey. You know how much I love your photos Lynn!

  4. Having just worked through completing a book of photos from many places I've visited and loved over quite a number of years - I can see how much your book of photos will tell that story for you (and for us!). How often a picture can tell a story - and I know yours do just that Lynn.

    1. It did become quite a retrospective, Fiona, and fills me with much appreciation for the opportunities that God has given to me. One photo can elicit lots of memories.
