Silhouette:  An outline or general shape of something …as defined by Dictionary.com…Silhouette, the Weekly Photo Challenge theme as it leads to a quiet moment on the lake:

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

~John Buchan

Silhouette of a lone angler

The silhouette of a lone angler 
On a chilly autumn afternoon
He knows and understands
That all too soon
His success in life will manifest 
Because he applies both persistence and patience
Two key life principles forged out while fishing
–Now carried over into his prosperous career and loving family life.

Have you discovered key life principles from pursing a fun past time?

Silhouette Of a Mother’s Love


The dark silhouette of a mother’s love for her son, Augustine–

Her long-suffering silent prayers, her weeping and unwavering hope for Augustine’s eternal life continued until her prayers brought conversation and baptism to Augustine.

“This was the mother who had wept over me for many years so that I might live in your sight.” —St. Augustine, on the death of his mother.

The silhouette of a mother who endured eighteen years watching her son abandoned to all the cares of the world…

“In the flesh she brought me to birth in this world; in her heart she brought me to birth in Your eternal life.”–St. Augustine

Let us find our single purpose in life as we travel through the silhouette of this mother and learn to apply the wisdom gained from the book of Proverbs 31:20:

“She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.”

For the month of September, our small church family will be distributing food to those in need within our community. Our public library now hosts an ongoing literacy program to help adults learn how to read.

In the hidden silhouette of a mother’s love, how is your community helping the poor and needy in your area?
