So great a Cloud of Witnesses

Good Evening, God!

My wonderful husband Kit was driving us home from church this morning when I saw these lovely clouds and snapped a photo.  The photo had several lights show up in it.  No doubt reflections of some kind.  But, they made me think about how there is far more “around” us than we realize.

Hebrews 12:1 says: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us”.  Of course, four or five lights do not a cloud of witnesses reveal . . . but they make me think.

And it is good, God, for us to stretch our minds and hearts . . . and our imagination too.  That reminds me of how the English prosecutors told Joan of Arc that the voice of God she heard was only her imagination.  She looked at them (I like to think she was puzzled) and said, “How else would God speak to me?”

How indeed!

So, as I trundle off to bed . . . I am imagining loving beings . . . a cloud of witnesses . . . encouraging me.  And my dear friend JoNetta is surely among them.
