Inspired by . . . the mystery


That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love,

and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding,

to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God,

and of the Father, and of Christ;  Col 2:2 (KJV)




The long blades of grass felt like silk against my bare legs as I walked. Tiny pink and purple blooms peaked their heads through the folds of grass as I passed by.




At each step I encountered flowers, rising among the grasses. Each was unique in form and color, and yet when I looked out across the meadow they formed a distinct pattern.

A tapestry of sorts.

As I looked closer, I saw people and places that I recognized.




The meadow,

the tapestry,

my life.




I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God.

Then you will have minds confident and at rest,

focused on Christ, God’s great mystery.

All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are

embedded in that mystery and nowhere else.

And we’ve been shown the mystery! Col 2:3 (MSG)




Painting with my camera again.

  1. The verses from Col. in the Message translation are beautiful. And your images, friend, are stunning. Wish we lived closer to one another so you could teach me a few things. Much love. xoxo

  2. The way you discover, display and delight make me come here again and again. God has gifted you and you are unique. Blessings ~ Chris

  3. Beautiful!

    I want my mind to be more focused on Christ.

  4. Hi June! The word picture of a tapestry is one that God often speaks to me through. You bless me.

  5. Wise eyes...
    "The earth declares Your majesty." Thanks for the reminder.

  6. This is gorgeous, of course, b/c I'm a purple addict. You did a wonderful way of sharing. Thanks.

  7. I look forward to your words and beautiful captures each week!

  8. I liked reading those verses in The Message. I especially liked how it said that Christ is God's great mystery. Yes, He is, isn't He?! Who would have ever guessed that God's plan for rescuing His people was becoming one of them and dying?

    God's mystery is our salvation, and His wisdom is our treasure.
