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)

Prairie Shed

Shekinah Photography by Kathleen Bowman: Landscapes-Pictorial  Prairie Shed

We had taken a "photo excursion" over to the Little Camas Prairie near Fairfield, Idaho, to catch some of the Camas lilies blooming.  Driving around the area, we also spied a number of old buildings.  While Kathleen takes pictures, I will often sit in the truck and read.  I barely remember this building, but I certainly don't remember being all that impressed with the view.
Somehow, my wife is able to look at a run-down old building, frame it with the right amount of foreground, tweak the camera settings and come out with this absolutely charming scene - Award-winning, as a matter of fact!  (1st Place - 2010 Western Idaho Fair)  I believe God looks at us the same way.  What may appear to be an ordinary person on the outside becomes something wonderful when framed with the right background and tweaked by the work of the Holy Spirit.  Whether you want to accept it or not, God considers YOU Award-winning!
