Commemoration Week <3 Wednesday

Aren’t we a funny bunch?

We want to be awed by God…and yet we want to be able to somehow capture His awesomeness and make it containable and explainable and ownable…

trying to imitate it in art…

to copy it in some way so that we can hold onto it  …

It is why I love pictures and why I wanted so desperately to photograph just one of these lovely creatures…the blue blur off to the side…the Blue Morpho Butterfly…

but they would not cooperate and continued to elude my attempts …

until I found one resting…

so I patiently rolled video over it waiting for a flap of the wing

that would reveal…

and then in the midst of my attempts to catch on film the incredible handiwork of God..

this one…

slips her phone in front of mine…

and between fits of laughter and the joy of love that exists between a daughter and her mom…

I am reminded that the glory and wonder of God can not be contained…

not in paintings…

or photographs…

or sculptures…

not even in the human heart.

Not the earth..

nor all the heavens can contain

His wondrous

marvelous

infinite

love <3
