Spiritual Sunday #9 - THE EYE OF GOD


(Click to enlarge)
As you can see from the small print below the picture this is Helix Nebula taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.


I like to think of it as The Eye of God. From my post here, on His Eye is On The Sparrow, I like to picture His watching over me with this beautiful image of His creation. However, He does it I'm just so very thankful to know that He does watch over each and every one of us that are His.

Spectacular! This just reminded me -- When I was hospitalized last year I'd to focus on a certain painting -- a pastel desert scene ... almost abstract. Anyway, if I scrunched up my eyes "just so", the background appeared (to me) like a giant, benovolent eye... the eye of God, of course. He is everywhere!

His love is so great for us; to think we are the apple of his eye warms my heart.

Oh, me too :) I feel His presence within me, around me, above me, in the air I breath and -oh my- everywhere. He is AMAZING, isn't He?

I like your Header words ;)

It is comforting to consider that He is watching over us so closely.

Wow, that's amazing, it really does look like an eye. I remember a song we used to sing in church back in the 40s called There's An Eye Watching You.. This reminded me of it.
Thanks for sharing.
Blessings,

That was so beautiful and I am so glad that GOD does watch over us.
I think that when I see the sun beams through the clouds. I think that GOD is shining his light down all around us and all is well.
Thanks
