Amazing!

“I can’t believe what I just saw!” Jack Buck, radio broadcast of Kirk Gibson Home Run in the 1988 World Series.

Flying home from Utah, I was looking out the plane window and saw only a layer of white clouds. Just a little bit later, I looked out and saw something I had never seen before. I’m really not even sure how to describe it. Somehow, while the sun was still shining above the clouds, it was also shining through from below the clouds. Fortunately, I took a picture so you don’t really need my description. God continues to amaze me!

Artsy

When we travel, I take a lot of what I would “touristy” photos. The kinds of shots many people would take when traveling to that location. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to to travel to so many amazing places in the past few years. It’s not hard to take great photos when you’re somewhere like the Grand Canyon or Glacier National Park.

I also try to take photos that I would call “artsy.” Maybe something most people would see but not take a picture of. Sometimes, a view from a spot that gives a unique perspective on a common sight. In the picture below, I was struck by the contrast between the tree in the foreground and city of Albuquerque in the distance.

In a similar way, there are some Bible passages that have a clear meaning. Other times, I appreciate being able to read the reflections of others for a perspective that I would not have on my own. Among the many resources available, I suggest looking at the daily reflections from itemissaest.org or jesuitprayer.org.
