This blog is mostly about images. A photo captures a moment in time and lets us slow down long enough to see the rich texture of the life all around us. It's mostly for my own amusement, but if you stumbled here somehow, please enjoy.

When I Look Down

No, this was not from "lofty mountain's grandeur" but it was from one of my favorite perches.  From where it's a little easier to imagine God's view of this earth.  Filled not with "huddled masses" but with individual people, each known by their Creator.  Each pinpoint of light a dwelling with people, families, places; none trivial.  None expendable.  Shining so bright even the clouds are illuminated from beneath.

"For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him."
(II Chr. 16:9)


  1. I love the perspective from this point of view. If we'd see everything from at least 10,000 feet, it would always be more clear to us, and I need to remember the One who, on my behalf, sees all from a much greater height than that...

  2. Thanks, Jeff. I know you are a fellow "cloud head"! Full disclosure: this was courtesy of American Airlines, not a C182!

  3. Beautiful photo, and such meaningful words. The shape of the lights reminds me of a map. Wow.
