I wish .... I wish I had a remote that would allow me to replay moments in my life.
"A CANDLE GLOW ACROSS TIME"
With a little practice and a co-operative laptop
I instantly inserted the picture of this simple little glowing candle onto these pages.
I once mentioned to my children that I can see the image of a cross to the right and above the candle.
Nobody else could see it.
I'm sure they squinted, held the photo at arms distance, tilted heads and squinted trying to see
what I see.
The Candle was a tiny glimmer of Light ..... and Hope
in two family celebrations. ....
one the celebration of a tiny baby girl's new life,
the other was to celebrate the new life of her father.
1959, a Baptism, dedication of a child to God,
2009 an acceptance spoken softly to that "little girl".
Softly and hoarse....
And he nodded.
And we celebrated.
