Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.”
Helen Keller

Gazing into the mist.
Watching what emerges, 
Or, waiting, with faith,
to see what or who comes your way.
Imagining the "great cloud of witnesses" who came this way before
what did they see, what did they find,
what treasure did they carry home
to remember the day
they were emerging from the mist.

Susan Tuttle and Chrysti Hydeck have started an exciting challenge on their blogs. Every couple of weeks they "echo" each other's photos which they have jointly posted on their blogs, and they have invited us all to play along. This week's echo is "Emerge" .  Here is my echo.

The person emerging from the mist on the beach at Assateague Island National Seashore is my husband Rick.

The wild horses were amazing. I was using my small pocket digital camera, and it was hard to zoom in and of course, sharpness was lost in editing. It was a beautiful misty day. Chilly, windy, I love those kinds of days. Great photo opportunities. And it sooo makes you appreciate the sunshine.

Wild horses - oh my goodness! I am astonished you were able to get any kind of photo. Thank you SO much for sharing. And thanks for sharing of the wonderful atmosphere. I adore those kind of days even though a sun worshipper.

The Helen Keller quotation also very much appreciated.
