Small Little Monuments

These photo edits are something a little different for me for sure as I'm expanding my comfort zone in my photo editing.  I've come back to these photos a few times and still like them so will post them I guess. :)

  We by chance (aka a God thing) came across the Brainard Cemetery last summer.  I just had my phone with for pictures, so that's what I used.  I was really intrigued with this cemetery. Part of it was completely neglected (the photo above) and part was cared for and groomed.  There were so many beautiful stones in the groomed area.  In this unkempt area, the few stones that we read were from the 1800s and for children of the same family and it left me without words.  

I added another photo of mine that means a lot to me to make this composition. 

I could have spent so much more time there, but it was getting dark and we needed to be on our way.  I'm pretty sure I'll make a return trip some day. 

The little monuments crumble.  The grass grows long. A name on a stone that is hard to read and will be gone in a few more years continuing on in this state. 

But, their souls are known to the Father, not just that He remembers them, but that He knows them.

Makes you stop and think a bit.
