For most of my drive home, the rainy sky had been punctuated by a break in the clouds that captured my attention.
The muted gray colors around the break had been completely illuminated by the streams of white light that followed a path to the earth below.
Pulling over by some farmland, I stopped my car and took some photographs as I pondered what was before me.
The light seemed unusually white for the time of day—it was actually after 7:00 in the evening.
No streaks of brilliant orange or hues of blue and yellow.
White is associated with purity.
God is pure.
I can imagine the glory of God appearing as a blinding white light.
In the New Testament, we find these words:
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
—2 Corinthians 4:6
