Here’s a prayer to warm our hearts on this Lenten Monday…
“Father in Heaven! You have loved us first, help us never to forget that You are love so that this sure conviction might triumph in our hearts over the seduction of the world, over the inquietude of the soul, over the anxiety for the future, over the fright of the past, over the distress of the moment. But grant also that this conviction might discipline our souls so that our hearts might remain faithful and sincere in the love which we bear to all those whom You have commanded us to love as we love ourselves.”
Søren Kierkegaard, The Prayers of Søren Kierkegaard
Photo: “A Rose Made of Galaxies” (NASA’s Hubble, 17 December 2010)
Looking at this Hubble photograph, it’s like God is saying “I LOVE YOU” across the vastness of the universe. How can we forget?
grace, peace & spectacular roses, spectacular love
Virginia : )
Great quote, Ginny… also, that is an amazing photograph!
Dwight emailed me that photo on Valentines — it’s so SO so SO cool! Methinks it will get put into a frame…
I have looked at a number of Hubble masterpieces through the years, but this one is new to me. A classic! I think I’ll co-opt it and tell folks I took the photo. ;-> What is amazing about Hubble work is it looks ‘Photoshopped’. Thanks, Virginia.
Isn’t it amazing? I first saw Hubble photos @ the Air & Space Museum in D.C. & thought they were science fiction art. Incredible how magnificent beauty fills the universe! ✨🌟✨
