Morning's Glory

I don't usually put up more than one photo on this blog. But this morning's splendor caught me by surprise . . . as did the news that our dear old friend Henry flew away to heaven last night.

He wasn't feeling too well--so to be free of the pain and weakness he had, must have been a revelation of glorious freedom.

His flight from this world into the next...

Must have been breathtaking.

Good bye, dear Henry. I will see you on the day I fly away to join you and so many others I love.
.
In the meantime, oh, I will miss you. And I will smile when I remember you.

The photos are breath taking and a wonderful tribute to Henry. I am sorry for the loss of your friend.
Take care little one.

Such perfect skies to see on this special day. I do believe there's a heart in the first photo. And all the others have wonderful little peep-holes to add to the mystery of Life. Have a blessed weekend.

This is a very nice tribute to Henry. I am sure he just gave you a thumbs up or a high five.

I have lots of friends waiting on me up in Heaven. Most of them are dogs. And I will be able to run and play with all of them at once.

My dear Beth, I am finally getting back to you. You are a delight to have visit. Notice I chose this blog to click on. I love your photos. You enjoyed my Day to Day blog. I try to add to it but at nearly 80 ( I may make it yet, 10 more days to go) my life has settled down but once in a while my memories might kick in.It was painful at times, my life, but also cathartic. I must explore your other blogs. Thank you so much for commenting.

I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your dear friend. What a beautiful tribute to Henry.
Your pictures are so lovely - one of my "favorite" skies - turquoise blue, peach clouds with lavender shadows. Breathtaking.

Clouds give me a sense of a heavenly state too......to become light enough to leave the density of the earth behind and to float gently as if there were not a worry in the world to contemplate.

What else can I say except - breathtaking. Your pictures here convey such emotion, such sorrow and delight. What it must be like to fly away to heaven indeed.
