a face in the flame

This photo was taken by Korey Myles during a firefighter class.  I was very interested in these shots because they were taken during the class, but also because I immediately saw what I perceived as a face in the flames.

then cupid or a baby angel

then a genie in a bottle

then a 1920's newsboy with a big bulbous nose

then a sad lady with long hair

Then Moses?  Or a winking Santa . . .

When the candy bits were small and they would hear ghost stories they would ask me if I thought they were true.  While I don't claim to know everything, I would assure my children that your brain is super powerful and can make a pattern out of just about anything. 

Please excuse my lack of drawing ability . . . I am not Reese's and do not have her talent for art.

The point is our brains with all their deductive reasoning powers are able to see pretty much whatever we want to see based on our own perception.  

This is why it is so important for us to keep our minds filled with good thoughts in order to perceive our world in a positive way.

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.  Philippians 4:8-9 (MSG)

So what do you see?



  1. I see an old man with a beard.... You quoted me MOST FAVOURITE bible verse. It has put me back on track many times when I've been obsessing over bad thoughts! and it works every time :)

  2. Not me Rosemary . . . God! He's the one who compels you to get back on track through His Holy Spirit. Glad to be able to help though. :)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment . . .I just love them!!
