Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
y bottle of salvation.
My gown of glory, hopes true gauge,
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

~Sir Walter Raleigh

A hiker, walking for pleasure, likes to choose between several alluring trails.
The pilgrim desires only the road that leads home.

This Is Not About Politics

It matters not that the daddy is a leader of a major country in the free world.

No. It's simply about a daddy getting nose to nose, becoming acquainted with his new daughter.

It a sweet photo of a precious moment in two lives.

Baby Florence Rose will not remember the moment, but the dad will.

I wish them joy along with the rest of the Cameron family.

As a family, they have known great grief over the loss of a beloved child.

Truly, no child replaces the one lost, yet there are fresh delights to be had by all.

Babies are a comfort and a joy, they provide the human touch, the common denominator in the lives of all, leader or not.

As the leader of a great nation, we are to pray for this Prime Minister.

Not forgetting that he is also a husband, a dad, a man.


  1. What a sweet pix! Something about daddy's and their girls.

  2. Touching photograph...From great sorrow
    to joy.
