I hear them called ‘God’s fingers’ yet I often wonder if they should indeed be ‘god’s fingers’. That must only highlight my own insecurities when it comes to defining my own faith. I have faith, for sure, what I don’t have is any one box to put my faith into that any other person wholly agrees with.
When it comes to these rays of light though, I do agree with so many others. They are easily one of the wonders of the natural world. They whisk up from almost nowhere with no notice given. A total and utter surprise to those of us lucky enough to view.
As they dance around they play with the light, highlighting just how bright it is above that main body of cloud. I can almost hear them calling, ‘catch me if you can’. As mischievous as a wisp their appearance signifies something special to me. I’m not 100% sure exactly what kind of special. Just like my faith, it’s not a quality than can be defined or quantified, just deep inside of me, when I listen to the way my heart sings, I know it sings with joy and passion.
When I see these fingers stretching down to touch the Matukituki Valley I feel like I’m home.
