190. Sheep Clouds (Scripture 6)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

“I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, 15just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep. 16I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.” John 10:14-16 NLT

176. Marshmallow Highway (Imagination 6)

marshmallow highway imagination

As I was wowed by this formation of fluffy clouds, I wondered what it would be like to walk down them, as if they were a road, and wondered if, with the right angelic feet, it might be like walking down a highway made of marshmallows; small round pillows of utter softness, springing slowly back up into wholeness as the impressions of weight were released.

135. Haloes (Light 8)

Light around a shape, whether (and weather) it is a cloud or a head, is described as a halo. We might think of it as an aura, or a kind of glow, that we often ascribe to coming from within, a measure of saintliness.  When used in art to show holiness, it is often depicted around the whole person of Jesus as an “aureole” or “glory,” whilst lesser saints only have holy heads.

I would not like to know how much light I give off, I think that I would only start to measure it, as human beings tend to do, wondering if I have more Watts than the rest of the pew… as usual I would be thinking of things back to front, for however much our light shines, it is all the grace of God, given, not earned.
