Light and Loveliness

Reflections of Emily Sue Allen



One sibling photo a week throughout the year. 24/52

A morning of berry-picking delight. Some people are pretty serious about their strawberry-eating.


“‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”‘” Zechariah 4:6-7 NIV

“‘It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. ‘Nothing, not even a mighty mountain, will stand in Zerubbabel’s way; it will become a level plain before him! And when Zerubbabel sets the final stone of the Temple in place, the people will shout: May God bless it! May God bless it!'” Zechariah 4:6-7 NLT
