God Glimpses #47 ~ I was THIS Close!


God Glimpses #47 ~ I was This Close!

I was. I was this close to this alligator. Oh, I realize he wasn’t a really big alligator, but I was still this close. I took this picture with my iPhone, no telephoto lens involved.

He could’ve reached out and chomped off my arm in a heartbeat. But he didn’t.
In fact, he didn’t even flinch. He blinked a few times, but he kept staring at me with those reptilian eyes. Maybe it had something to do with the thick glass between us at the aquarium.

Yeah, I’m sure that was it. Because he did look like he would like to chomp off my arm.

Don’t we sometimes tempt temptation like we had aquarium glass between us and it? Na-na-na-na-na! You can’t get me!

He’s waiting to get you.

Don’t give in. Put out your hand and feel the glass. God’s got you.

God Glimpses #6

man with a muckrakeIt’s all Muck. If we can’t see glimpses of God in our daily lives, it’s because we are guilty of exactly what this painting portrays. We’re so enthralled with the meaningless and useless trappings of the blessings of God that we lose the desire for God himself. What an amazing and sarcastic portrayal of our childish outlook!
