All of life is made up of light and shadow

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:5

My mum and I went to visit the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum on Saturday.

The beautiful courtyard was decked out for the holidays

splashes of red amaryllis and poinsettia against the greenery

the sound of a harpist playing Christmas songs

echoed throughout the rooms as we walked along admiring the scenery.

The artwork itself is spectacular but there's something about the building

that is art in itself.

It's so peaceful and beautiful.

I could spend the day just watching the light.

  1. This sounds like an awesome place.This is also one of my very favorite bible verses, I have posted it several times. The light IS overcoming the dark in your picture.

  2. What precious moments you shared with your mother. I really miss my mom this time of year.


  3. Beautiful pictures and I'm sure it was a treasure to spend time with your mom there. Soak them up. time has a way of stealing away what is really important when we are busy doing other things. blessings!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
