The more I think about the story of Jesus' transfiguration the more I am drawn to it..that God still wasn't finished with Jesus. Just like God is not finished with you or me. Regardless of our age or situation in life the possibility of transfiguration remains...
This week I read Man of Letters, a 3 1/2 page story by Guy Lebeda. It is the story of two friends, Guy and Dave, who communicated, primarily, through writing letters. Before Dave died he went to visit Guy, as they were walking one night this scene of transfiguration occurred,
"Shortly before the end of their visit, Doug and I went for a walk through my suburban neighborhood. As we strolled through the fragrant darkness, he was suddenly swarmed by fireflies. He was completely enveloped in a gentle cloud of flickering lights. We stood looking at each other, while the insects hovered over him. After what seemed like a long time, the swarm floated away, and I shivered strangely in the hot night air."
May you be transfigured this week, in some form or fashion, by the mysterious working of God.
