Love Through A Snapshot: Shot 1
“I wandered lonely as a cloud.”
If you’re a poet, enjoy poetry, or just took English Literature, you’re probably familiar with these words by Wordsworth.
If you were to stop yourself right now to gaze up above, would you see scattered clouds? An endless horizon of blue? Maybe you’d see stars if you’re lucky. Or maybe just your ceiling.
I used to think that angels lived up there in the clouds. Before science, I thought that if I were to travel to the skies, I would be enveloped in a cloud of a fluffball. Perhaps not quite the most poetic of terms, but probably how I would describe it as a little girl. My head would swim in the clouds as I imagined what it would be like travel to the skies.
Thank God for science, yet I still find my head in the clouds; sometimes my feet try in vain to remain on the ground when they want to float where my mind resides as well.
Here on earth, I look up and still wonder how it would be to wander like a cloud. As a child, my mind always did.
I’d think about how millions of years ago, this earth was walked by giant beasts – things found only in legends and fantasy books before the birth of science… before paleontologists and other scientists found out that thing of legends – dinosaurs – actually were real and walked the earth.
And to think: this was just on earth.
According to research, our world – our specific solar system – was formed 4.5 billion years ago.
4.5 billion years ago, the earth that we live on and the surrounding planets around us were just dust.
Literally. Just dust. The result of a shooting star exploding in the universe: a supernova.
According to NASA, “most of the hundreds of billions of stars in our galaxy are thought to have planets of their own, and the Milky Way is but one of perhaps 100 billion galaxies in the universe”.
How amazing it is… that our brains have the capacity to acquire knowledge to the point that we can even explain the formation of the stars, of legend-like beasts that walked the earth, and that there are multilayers to our universe.
In a galaxy of a billion stars, there are a billion more beyond, and further on, countless more.
In an infinite universe of the cosmos, as humans, there’s one thing that’s hard for us to comprehend.
WE can affirm the infiniteness of the universe…
Yet often, the slightest possibility of a supreme force – of an immaculate God as a designer – is seen as mere fiction. A legend. A fairytale.
Science fiction like time-traveling machines, flying cars, and sound that can be emitted from one place to another.
But, this message isn’t meant to persuade you to come up to the clouds with me. I’m just here to share the immaculate beauty I’ve found in my inner world written in the skies and stars.
Look at the sky again…as it is in the day, as it is in the night.
You’ll find your immaculate answer there.
With love <3,
