Heaven on Earth
Photo and reflection by Jennie Weeks, Director of Adult Discipleship, Christ Church (Louisville)
I took this picture from the deck of my sister's cabin in North Georgia Mountains.
When our dad visits there, he calls it a "little piece of heaven," and in the evening when the sun sets, it does feel as if heaven and earth are converging. I remember an old hymn we used to sing: “Heaven came down and glory filled my soul.” During Advent, we celebrate the birth of the Christ Child, a moment when heaven did come down to earth and filled our world with glory like the world had never seen before.
