I've finally narrowed down my search for a word beginning with the letter "G" that represents the word COURAGE for me....by dissecting that word letter by letter.
The Master Sailor.
Please see photo credits below:
The bold red color of the sails also reminded me of the tragedy in my life, but also of the blood of Jesus Christ that washes away all of my sins....it reminds me of a Savior that is willing to offer me not only the gift of salvation, but also the gift of saving me from my self.
I've added a few filters to the original beautiful ship photo that was taken by a close friend from my photo club, Peter Marks, a native of Great Britain now living across the pond in the good old U.S.A. All credits for the photo go to him. Thank you so much for allowing me to use your photo U.P. As I stated, I just added the darkness of a night storm type feeling with that GLIMMER of Bright Hope in the distance.
That GLIMMER of GOODNESS and Hope is my GOAL
towards learning to live a life filled with COURAGE.
Here is Peter Marks original photo of the ship with the beautiful red sails before I added the other effects...
