Shekinah: 'God Himself dwelling in the cloud of glory'

I was walking one afternoon just before last week's Good Friday when I saw this awesome Shekinah!

I was glad because I had my camera with me.

I took these pictures.

Glory to God for the grace to be able to see one of His Shekinah glories!

[*Shekinah (pronounced she-kai-nah) is a Hebrew word meaning "the 'dwelling' or 'settling,' and is used to denote the dwelling or settling presence of God, especially in the Temple in Jerusalem." --Wikipedia.

[*Shekinah was used by the Jewish writers even before the time of Jesus to express what they understood to be the Very Presence of God, God Himself dwelling in the cloud of glory.

*Shekinah, then, was a term for God and His abiding presence.]

[*Shekinah is the feminine attribute of the Presence of God. --Wikipedia.]
