“Paint Me a Picture”
. . . is a new weekly feature of the ChosenRebel Blog. Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words, maybe more. Like the picture above or the one below from another angle. It looks like an artist painstakingly wove the fence with grass for as far as the eye can see. How did it come to be? Here’s the opening paragraphs of the story that broke in of 2021:
“Storm Arwen has created a ‘masterpiece’ among its trail of devastation – by blasting tonnes of grass so hard the blades wove themselves so perfectly onto a fence that passers-by thought it was handmade.
Landscape photographer Colin Richards braved the weather on November 28 to walk up Mynydd Pwll-yr-Iwrch, south Wales, when he came across an ‘unbelievable’ sight stretching across 130 metres of fencing.
Incredible photos taken by the father-of-one on the hill summit show the brown moor grass completely entwined in the barbed wire structure.”
No human weaver put those blades of grass on that barb wire fence. But there is a Weaver who did. Whenever I see such magnificence in a starry night, or an ocean deep, or in a split geode I remember, that before any human eye saw their beauty or contemplated their symmetry, or calculated their age, our creator God was enjoying what He had done. And I suspect He was smiling about the day human eyes would see what He had artfully made and placed where they could be found.
1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
2 Day to day pours fourth speech,
And night to night reveals knowledge. (Cf. also Psalm 19:1-6)
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes,
His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen,
being understood through what has been made,
so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)
