Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12


Her eyes. Piercing blue with the immense depth of decades of wisdom, pain and experience. What these eyes have seen, this heart has felt, these hands have touched. In a remote Ugandan village where many have never seen their reflection, let alone held a photograph capturing their spirit, this widow shed tears upon seeing her image. Her reply “Thank you. Now all those I’ve loved and cared for will remember me when I’m gone.” I’m thankful to provide a tangible reminder of the woman who’s loved so many but know that with or without a photo, she would not be forgotten in the hearts of those with whom those eyes have gazed.
