Rose Window

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 29 July 2007 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

For your Sunday viewing pleasure, a close up of a mini rose window that hangs in my office. Some of the lack of sharpness and detail is actually the way this little reproduction looks.

The dark shadow area near the bottom is some clunky imperfection on my real window, behind this stained glass miniature.

Sometimes we try to keep our own dark, imperfect places in the background. But they still show up. The good news is, if we put our trust in him, God's covering of light and grace will overcome even the darkest shadows and imperfections. The way the beauty of this stained glass covers my otherwise not so lovely window.

Soli Deo Gloria.

Interesting. Before reading your description I just assumed the photo was of a very large church window.

@Twelvebit: It is actually no more than 12 inches in diameter...
