Revealing God

I Didn't See You There!

Picasa is a photo album application by Google. It has a special feature, name tags, that uses face matching technology to organize photos by the people in them!

It starts by finding a face in a picture and asking who it is. So far, it is just the same as tediously labeling pictures one at a time. But then, as soon as you identify one photo, it finds other photos that look like the person you tagged. When you then tag the ones it guessed correctly, and it reveals even more!

I was swept away as pictures of my family and friends were harvested from acres of photos. The more I picked, the more the computer found! Different years, weights!?, glasses, hairstyles,(even the bald months!) were named and claimed as my loved ones.

Now I can find my loved ones in the sea of photos spanning years. It all started by picking a loved one out of one photo scene.

I believe this works in discerning the face of God in real life. Once you start identifying God in your life, God sightings increase. You learn the various ways that God is active, bringing his face out of the background into awareness.

Hope you have a picture perfect day, and find the face of God ever increasingly in it.

Stop. Look. God!

Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you. - Psalm 139:7-12
