He is the Radiance


My rosebush was just two big.

It had grown tall over the years and I had not pruned it as I should have.

Several days ago, I decided to drastically prune the bush, cutting off almost every branch.

Gathering the cut branches, I put them all in a vase of water, hoping that I could use these cuttings to have other rosebushes in the yard.

Today was the day—-I decided to plant several of the branches in two flower beds.

As I was planting them, I noticed a neighbor at the edge of her yard, photographing the sunset.

From where I was, the scene was blocked by the house next door.

When I went to investigate what she was photographing, I, too, wanted to capture that moment forever!

Taking a quick photo with my phone, I went inside and retrieved my camera to take more photos.

Beams of light soared through the sky, emerging from silver lined clouds of gray.

Soon, another neighbor was out photographing it, as well.

We were all quite captivated by the glorious display.

Hebrews 1:1-4 reads,

“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,  but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.  He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.”


The radiance of the glory of God.

When I look at the setting or rising sun, I can only imagine what Heaven will be like where the glory of God shines forever and ever, without end.
