Day 10 of the Great Photo Challenge - Emotion

Life is complicated. Job 14:1 says, "Man is few of days and full of trouble." Sometimes the trouble comes whether we like it or not. Sometimes we wail. Emotions overtake us.

Other days the sun shines and we feel wonderful. We laugh and we smile. Emotions overtake us then too.
 You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.  Psalm 16:11

Our faces are where emotions usually show up the most. We cry tears and our mouth turns down at the corners. Eyebrows furrow. Or our eyes light up and we smile wide enough to crack our faces were it possible.

Its common. It is how we show emotion.

When I think of expressing emotion though, there is more to it by far than just my facial expression. My best way of expressing emotion is through my fingers. I love to write and whether I am full of woes or full of joy, I like to write it down. I don't always keep what I write but it seems to bubble up out of me looking for a place to land.

So for the photo challenge, 'emotion', I'm posting a picture of my hand...and a pen.


  1. Clever articulation of your thoughts, here... I like it!!

  2. So true...emotions are not always...and often are not - expressed through the face! I like both of the scriptures you used here!! And neat photo idea!
