world through glass



For now we see through a glass, darkly; 
but then face to face: 
now I know in part; 
but then shall I know 
even as also I am known.
— I Corinthians 13:12

S. Etole said...

they remind me of oriental paintings so serene ...

i love this verse -- this to me trumps the others in the chapter on what His love will really do to our rendering of the concept.

also: have you read "Till We Have Faces" by C.S. Lewis? if not, put it on your list, friend.

Wonderful Scripture - for then we will see clearly ! Very appropriate photos.

Francesca said...

I hope one day soon to read and learn the wisdom and beauty of the old scriptures. I think it's all there, in those books.

Clicked over from Michelle's. It's nice to meet you! Love the photos.

Hi, Leslie! I came over from Michelle's and so glad I did! This is one of my favorite verses. I long for the day I'll see clearly, and I love the last part of that promise, "I'll know even as I'm also known."

Glad you linked up!

Oh Leslie, one of my favorite verses ever! And yes, those misty branches work so well. I do long to see Him clearly...and I know I will someday.

Thank you so much for linking up -- you are wonderful!

Oh, Leslie! How I've missed you. Lovely photo, lovely words from the heart of God.

I can't wait to see things clearly - for now that smudge print is my nose trying to get as close to the glass as possible to see!

Jen said...

There are moments when I think I see Him clearly, and I do, but oh how that will pale in comparison when I see Him face to face.

Dawn said...

And to think that even through the glass it's so beautiful. How could it possibly get better?

Oh, but it will, and it will blow our minds.

Beautiful images.

Beautiful.

I love this. I have always loved that verse in Corinthians because it suggests such a profound connection with the divine--that the barrier between the divine and ourselves is of our own making in some sense. I realize that many people interpret it to mean now and the afterlife but I see it differently. I love your imagery and you.
