      To take captive every thought, to the obdience of Christ is the most important thing we can do for our King. I like that you included this one.

      CO,

      You did a great job with the photography as well as the written message. The flower and caption say it all.

      Beautifully expressed, creativeone59. I am afraid we are all held in bondage to some extent and that freedom carries a very high price of determination and discipline. Many blessings to you.
