This week at ABC Wednesday, F is our letter of focus.

F is for FAITH – something we all need in these uncertain times.

So many religions exist around the world and each has their own expressions of faith. What a wonderful world it would be if we could all have faith, let our actions show how we live our faith and that love would triumph over hate and evil.

Here is my journal page on some favourite faith quotes:

There are so many quotes about faith.. Here are a few more:

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. Mother Teresa

Creativity is always a leap of faith. You’re faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage. Julia Cameron

He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery! Anne Frank

 

F is also for fear – and if we have faith, we can overcome our fears.

23-F by Roger

This is a peony. At least I THINK it is.

Here’s a true confession: I am astonishingly LOUSY at identifying the various types of flowers out there.

Oh, there are a few I recognize: some lilies, tulips, roses, carnations, sunflowers, probably a few more. But I’ve seen begonias, hydrangea, peonies, and many more, but the next time, it’ll be “What’s that one again?”

Still, the collective wisdom of the participants of ABC Wednesday has done a stellar job at introducing me to a number of beautiful and unusual flora. Unfortunately, this brain loses the connection between the name and the picture. It used to be frustrating, but now it just IS.

So please keep posting those stunning flower pictures for ABC Wednesday. Your compatriots will appreciate it, as WILL I, even if I forget the flower names in both Latin AND English.
