Picture Perfect – Under Your Nose

Strictly speaking, this is more over and in my nose than under it, but if we never look up, all our attention taken by the cares of this life (represented by the mess in the garage), we may miss some very important things, amazing beauty among others.  This is the clematis we had to prune severely as shown in a previous PP entry (Disordered).  It has a subtle perfume of vanilla.

One thing that is right under our noses that we easily miss is the presence of the Creator, but do we know how to look?

“for I am so close to them that they may not see Me, but they are molded to Me as the tree that has grown against the wall of the Temple molds to the outline of its stones and curves along the arch of its porch way.  But the Temple is indestructible while the tree cannot survive off the shelter of its walls.”

The Revelation of Arès 1/11-12a

“We verily created man and surely know what misdoubts arise in their hearts; for We are closer to him than his jugular vein.”

The Qur’an 50.16
