You can see the fires clearly in this stunningly over processed photo.
Which brings up an excellent point about shooting during the middle of the day. The contrast, well, …hmmm, how does one say this when one is a Priest with some amount of dignity. … Well, the contrast just sucks in the middle of the day.
And without overprocessing it looks like just another cloudy day. But it’s not another cloudy, it’s this amazing marsh fire.
I’m still pondering yesterday’s Gospel about being children of light. There’s something to be said for that in this forlorn picture taken in nearby Kenner. The tattered American flags, the desolation, …the haze.
The fruits of the Spirit are “love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” [Galatians 5:22-23.]
Given such spiritual splendor, we need to observe the signs of the times. And so often today, the times appear uncertain, hesitant, divisive, confused, mean, unfaithful and even hazy.
But we are at peace, knowing the fullness of truth awaits us.
