WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge






“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

Andrea LeKare is my cousin’s 15 year old daughter who is passionate about photography, modelling and many other common, teenage interests. When Andrea agreed to contribute her photos to my blog, I found these photos and have been waiting for an opportunity to highlight her beautiful work. I think that they fit nicely for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction.


I think the photos are stunning. I hope that you enjoy.


don’t just live life…illuminate it

20140306-104140.jpggive life

everything you got

sparkle and shine

light it up.

resplendence abounding,

embellished with grace,

an offering of richness,

not just filling space.

don’t just live life…illuminate it,

Be the light in the darkness

do you remember, as a kid, lying in bed and shaking in your boots because the room was pitch black?

if mom or dad would come in and turn in the light…all was well!

even a small night light would dispel the darkness to settle the fright.

well, sometimes, the world looks dark and frightening.

but there is Light!

if that Light shines brightly from your heart…

darkness, fear and panic can not remain.

let the Light shine!
