About the word Shekinah

The word Shekinah (shuh-kigh-nuh) means dwelling. It refers to the visible manifestation of the presence (or Shekinah Glory) of God. A luminous cloud. It is the very presence of God on earth. (see Holy Bible-Exodus 24:9-18)

Mountain Bluebird

Shekinah Photography by Kathleen Bowman: Birds  Mountain Bluebird
We were camping at Craters of the Moon National Park earlier this year (the end of April, I believe) when this picture was taken.  We had been hiking around on different trails, getting more and more tired as the day wore on.  Kathleen had been complaining that she wasn't getting any good bird shots and how stupid it all was.  Yea...she was tired!
 So I prayed that Almighty God would show my lovely albeit tired wife His glory.  Within minutes, this beautiful male Mountain Bluebird came by, posing within reach of her long zoom lens.  Kathleen practically bounced back to the truck!  Isn't that just like God?  We can start to get frustrated, tired, grumpy, whatever.  But then He pulls back the veil just a little and reveals His wondrous creativity and glory to us.  And we are changed as a result.
