"Keeping Watch" Angel in Sunlight

I posted a front view of this angel here last month, and some people felt that she was a bit foreboding. I wondered if that might have been partially due to the dark, cold weather that we had when we took those photos, so we took a few again on a clear, bright winter day. Does the difference in the atmosphere change how she looks to you?

Annie asked if I had missed posting yesterday due to despondence resulting from the Tigers' loss to the Vols on Saturday night. *grin* Not at all :), although it was a disappointment. I hope that they see it as an opportunity instead....sometimes a loss can be the best thing that happens to a team. And the Vols deserve kudos, as they really did keep it together---the Pyramid was loud with an abundance of Tigers' fans.

We spend quite a bit of time with my father, since my mother passed away in October. He's 82 (and a lot of fun!), and we often visit with him, or take him out on the town with us when we are going someplace fun. So, if I occasionally miss a day at the computer, it is usually due to that type of family time.

My father is having surgery tomorrow, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. I will try to post regularly, and hopefully I will have good time to visit all of you, too!

I like the cloudy day picture best. I just think it looks better without the blue sky. Also you can see her face better and I think she has a very sweet look.
I will remember your Father in prayer.

Hi Southern Heart, I see we have something more in common. My dad is 82 and lots of fun also. I like to hang out with him as well - and with my mother, too.

I'm glad you're not despondent. After all, it's only a game.
