Musing the Heavens

Musing the Heavens is a reflection on the shapes that clouds make and what it could mean. Enjoy, and thanks for visiting.

Musing the Heavens. Holy Clouds (1 of 1)

I have the privilege of spending time on the water as the boat steerer (coxswain) for my rowing team. My primary plain of vision, because I’m steering the boat, is water and sky. Water, for the need to see what’s around and ahead as we row and sky for changes in weather.

I took this photo a year or so ago during one of our early morning rows in New Bedford Harbor. The hole in the clouds had me musing the heavens and wondering if someone was headed to heaven… or getting kicked out! Then I thought, what if God had made an opening to better keep an eye on things and look in on how we, as a people, were doing?

Within minutes the hole disappeared. I’ve never seen anything like it since. And I wonder if that is a good thing or not?

  1. If you are wondering if seeing an opening into heaven is good or not. Well, I think it was there just for you. To remind you that God is there and waiting.

    If you were referring to the opening disappearing, it’s ok. I’m sure it opened somewhere else to remind another.

    1. Thank you, Liz….your point and shared sense and wisdom is very much appreciated! I had not thought about theopening moving on to someone or someplace else that may in fact needed it more. It makes me smile just to think about that!
      My best to you, and thanks!

      PS: But just in case…as a fellow rower and steerer, keep an eye out for its possible return, okay? 🙂
