Fireworks were bursting in air last July 4th courtesy of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. I tried to capture the feel of the moment with my little Nokia cell phone camera. We got the real firework show afterwards. It started to rain, thunder and lightning soon after the man-made show was over. I thought the first show was nice, but the second one was best!
Our humanity begins at conception, living in the comfort of our mother’s womb until the day we are born into this world. What a miracle of life! As I gaze at this photo of my grandson when he was ‘newly born’ I marvel at the absolute beauty, definition and function that sums up the many parts of the human body. All humanity is given the greatest privilege of all God’s creation, that is, being made in His image.
Oh the depths of God’s wisdom and knowledge in His creation of us! We are all born with the need to love and be loved, just like our Creator.
Every time I look at this photo I just want to pick up my little grandchild and hold him near. Even though he is now 6 years old, and lives out-of-state, I hold him as close to my heart as the day he was born!
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:26,27 KJV
There are many ways to engage in dialogue: speaking, singing, miming, dancing, hugging…It would be an absolute shame to hold the definition of this word to a narrow interpretation!
I love this photo because it reveals precious members of my family sharing a joyful, loving moment of unspoken dialogue. Both their body language and facial expressions show their closeness in a most delightful way!
