There lies before me a portrait most captivating and divine. I am arrested by it, and the very site of it is spiritually penetrating.
Were I asked, "What say ye?", perhaps I would be awestruck and silent.
I tell you, when I gaze upon that portrait of a beautiful open sky, 'to me it looks like God!' I SEE a head protruding up and outward, signaling to all humanity an infinite pathway to eternity.
I SEE no darkness of night nor light of day. And I SEE no clouds nor shadows of grey.
I SEE the right shoulder with the hand reaching out. I SEE the left hand extended toward the stars of lights,
so divinely picturesque in colors of blue, green, red, and purple. I SEE an open sky filled with an immense array of stars alive and bright
with a few larger ones that sparkle to cast an even greater display of color and light.
That imposing image mentioned above appears to be introducing an even larger and awesome figure that speaks to me like a "John The Baptist" heralding the way for a greater one than he-The Christ of God. I SEE this Presence filling everything with its immeasurable reaches. I SEE, and it's rather interesting to me, two figures standing in a vast domain of light unencumbered by colors of any kind.
Presently, I SEE no wrath of falling stars of destruction. I SEE no folded arms speaking 'No Admittance" but all arms opened wide for all to see and draw near. I SEE a smiley face from one longing to embrace long lost sons and daughters. I SEE no angry face but standing stars of grace, love, and mercy, waiting and pleading for us mortals to pause, be still, be healed, be changed, and experience lasting renewal. I SEE.........!
