Ever seen through carpeting?

Was having a conversation with a rather smart woman and we were speaking of stars, light, night, time, space, matter, and this naturally led to many further fine thoughts and observations. A moment in time. Words spoken. Thoughts considered. Where were you? Where are you? Where am I? Now? and I then asked her: Why is the sky so blue?

After the customary trading of opinion, she asked me: ‘So, what do YOU think?’ Aah, music to my ears, when someone asks what do you think about this or that, and after a long pause I immediately said this:

The blue sky is the floor of heaven.

Which also means that the stars are dotted jewels upon God’s watered carpeting. And that further below float the clouds, like the dust of His feet. Perspective is a wonderful master teacher.

After all, there is this thing called the firmament, of which we all live under its umbrella. But enjoy a golden oldie. If we pay attention, we can hear the singing of creation, and oh my, if our ears appreciate music, how much more does God enjoy the notes on the scale.

    The sky is blue, during the day anyways, because of how the atmosphere filters the light spectrum as it comes to us from the sun. There is no “firmament” nor is the sky the bottom of the carpeted floor of heaven.

    Been decades since I thought of Petula Clark. Thanks.

    Thought you might enjoy this.

    The vast space above us—so near, and yet in many respects so far beyond our reach, so familiar, and yet so strange…. the moving shapes and shifting hues of that vault which is like the floor of heaven trodden by angels… which, in indifference to its glory and beauty, we so frequently forget to look at, except with a careless reference to the state of the weather? ~Sarah Tytler, Footprints: Nature Seen on its Human Side, 1881 [Tytler was the pen name for Henrietta Keddie (1827–1914). —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]

      I did enjoy that- never heard of it. I would like to have said that!

      As to Ms Clark- some of the modern gals could take a cue as to what is good singing- and this tune about love actually, inspired the idea bout the floor.😊

    Great post and song selection.

    Stars have brought smiles to humans over time and many reasons or conjectures for existence.

    If interested, I wrote a post of what I surmised about ancient beliefs of stars and time 3000 years ago based on a proverb.

      Excellent addition to this theme. Can’t go wrong contemplating the jewels of heaven. Queen SheBah’ also knew she was in the company of a brilliant man, above all in wisdom as you know.

      Tkx for bringing it here. 😉
