The Glory of God....and twenty five years

Jeremy got back from Honduras a few weeks ago. The picture on the header of my blog is a picture he took while he was in the air from the airplane. It's one of the most incredible pictures I've ever seen. When I look at that picture, it's like I'm looking at God in all of his brilliance. The clouds look like mountains, the sun shining through makes everything just illuminate, the sun overhead shines over the whole picture with a glowing brilliance. It reminds me of a song called "I See the Lord"

I see the Lord seated on the throne exalted,
and the train of His robe fills the temple with glory,
and the whole earth is filled with His glory.

When I look at that picture, that's what I see. It's like the train of His robe is filling the sky with His glory. God lives in us. When people look at us, do we look like the train of His robe has filled our temple with His glory? What would this world be like, if when people looked at us as Christians, they saw the glory of God illuminating through us with such brilliance? I dare say the world would be a much better place.

If God can make the sky light up with such brilliance, how much more brilliant is it going to be some day when we are truly standing surrounded by the train of His robe. It's going to be amazing! I can't wait!

(here is a larger picture. I had to shrink the header.)

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord
seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train
of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs,
each with six wings: With two wings they covered their
faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two
they were flying. And they were calling to one another:
"Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty:
the whole earth is full of his glory."

Isaiah 6:1-3


Today is also mine and Chris' 25th wedding anniversary! Twenty five years goes by so fast. For our anniversary, our garage door springs broke. So we get to replace those at probably around $200. There is always something!

I am so blessed to married to my best friend. He is my partner in life and my spiritual partner. There is no one I would rather spend my life with. We have had lots of incredible journey's along the way. I can't wait to see what the next 25 years holds. You are my love and my life. I love you Chris! Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! I LOVE the picture. Great thoughts. It was so clear I almost didn't see that it was clouds.

It has been an incredible 25 years.....and I would do it all over again (minus all the automobile/house repairs of course)....and plan on at least another 25 years. I am looking forward to when our kids get to take care of us -- LOL. I Love You!!!!

What an amazing picture! It is something that as beautiful as we can find on this earth, it cannot compare to the glories of heaven.
Happy Anniversary! Not everyone can claim the victory of 25 years of happiness. May the Lord bless you with continued happiness until He comes again!

Happy Anniversary!
I hope you have a great day and week.
You set the example for many Christian couples today.


A little late here, but Happy Anniversary. Also, loved the thoughts about God in this post.

Pictures were breath-taking.
