WFW ~ Psalm 27:1

My sister Lana G. created this for me with one of my photos from Oxford, England. I pulled it out of my archives to use today for Word Filled Wednesday. This building is on the grounds of Magdalene College (pronounced maudlin) We were there during Easter week in 2004 with our daughter Katie…

For more Word Filled Wednesday visit Mrs. Amydeanne! Thank you Amy for hosting…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and demanding a ransom for me to access them. I’m slowly cleaning up many of my posts where PB have added ugly black and grey boxes where my photos used to be. So frustrating!

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Ellen…blessings…this is so precious…the pink blossoms & the beautiful chapel like building at the college!!! Great verse! May His light continue to shine brightly throughout our lives & this season! Enjoy WFW!

  2. Magnolia tree and one of my most favorite verses.
    Just beautiful. I remember walking through Melbourne
    University which is the oldest in Victoria (Australia) and
    just soaking up the anticipation of studying in those
    glorious old buildings. I love the University atmosphere.
    It was also God’s fulfillment of His promise never to leave
    me or forsake me when my parents forced me away from the
    university stream into secretarial/accounting areas. I did
    work 2 years in the city for a lovely firm of Chartered Accountants
    and then left to become a teacher. Then I had the chance to do
    an Arts Degree by distance education when I had given up my flat and life in the city and went to live 300 miles away to a place my parents had moved to and to nurse my Father for His last three months.
    I left there to marry and just after my husband left due to a mental breakdown that lead him to the point of suicide 6 yrs later when he was saved by a Christian man who brought him down for treatmment and diagnosis. But at my most raw, just after he had left, I was awarded a place on a month long course where lectures were conducted by a variety of people among them the head and deputy of the faculty of Education at Melbourne University who had me enrolled in my Master of Education by the end of the course.
    Only God can do things like that. Can turn the tragedies into His triumphs. And always fulfill His promises.
    Sorry…….that got a bit long.

  3. Good morning Ellen B.,
    How are you doing this morning?
    I wanted to thank you for the information about Victoria last night and it was so much fun being able to talk with you. After I hung up I thought, “OH! I should have asked her this or that.” Oh well hopefully another time. We decided to stay with the Jacksonville plan and drive up since gas is much cheaper than it was an few months ago.

    Onto another subject…Lana B. has such an amazing eye for mixing text colors with photographs. As the picture scrolled down and I saw the beautiful soft pinks against the old weathered gray stone my heart melted. There’s something about old architecture that stirs something somewhere within me, but to see it as a backdrop for something that God has created makes it that much more beautiful.

    Have a blessed day!

  4. Good morning, Ellen! Lovely picture!

    Re: children’s books, I can’t believe we like so many of the same things! 🙂

    Also, I finally showed my husband your blog last night. I have told him about you, but never showed him your blog. He was IMPRESSED by the pretty pictures you took and said that I should have you take my quilt pictures… 🙂

    Blessings for a lovely day!

  5. Ellen, I love this! I also love the header of the Castle in Wales (which we discussed on the other thread).

    We were in Oxford about twenty years ago, and I loved it. I remember the beauty of the buildings well, and you’ve done a good job capturing it here. Really beautiful.



  6. I’ll post here, your WW had a very pretty picture also. This building is a wonderful backdrop for that scripture. You sister did good.
    So Happy WW, I finally (late) put up an ‘out to eat’ picture series.

  7. Ah, thanks ellen…that was lovely…it reminded me of my short time in Cambridge last year…love the architecture..and the flowers! Always wanted to get to Oxford..maybe one day!
