This weeks theme is “OPEN”:

I thought about this one long and hard. I didn’t want to do something obvious like a door or something. I was trying to think outside the box. We drove past a church that is in our neighborhood and I seen this statue. I have seen it many times, almost daily actually. It hit me though …Jesus is always open for us to come to him.I was like how perfect a picture to capture the word “open”… So Gup and I decided to take our nightly walk around this church and get some pictures of the statue… I am not sure if I am breaking the rules by posting two ( If so I will take one down) The larger/further away one was so dark that I wanted to post the one that was a little closer with it. It was hard to tell what we were getting because it was getting dark Anyway, have a very blessed Saturday!!

    Excellent photo and story. You’re so right. Jesus is always there with open arms – we just need to learn to fall into his arms, more often. I’m glad you played along! Ya’ll have a blessed Saturday, as well.

    Great photo! :=)
    I thought of a door too, but then, like you, I thought that was pretty obvious so went for something else. Looking forward to seeing what others have posted.
