The Photo-Shoot was orchestrated by the hand of God.
We prayed for the right time and location for our logo shoot. We asked for a dramatic sky. On the day that we had planned to photograph the cross the day was beautiful, clear, bright blue, sunny. As we were headed to congregate for the shoot the skies darkened and threat of a severe thunderstorm was forecasted. It indeed came through with torrents of rain - as the rain came down the sun began to shine through the horizon and a rainbow appeared in the sky. Then a second rainbow, symbolic that "God keeps his promises!" We discovered a mole had fallen into the hole that we were to use for uprighting the cross, so had to "save" him and "set him free" before proceeding. The carrying of the cross was indeed an act of worship for the "Soldiers f the Cross." who picked up the cross to follow Jesus. A butterfly flittered about and around the cross through the entire shoot, symbolic of the new life we have in Christ Jesus. "If anyone is in Christ; he is a new creation; the old has passed away and the new has come." 2 Corinthians 3:17 As we were taking pictures from below looking upward, as on the hill of Calvary, the sun broke through the clouds in a splended array and illuminated the cross. The entire day was handpicked and ordained by the mighty hand of God. To HIm be the Glory!
