Heart-Shaped Moon

“It is not a matter of thinking a great deal but of loving a great deal, so do whatever arouses you most to love.”

St. Teresa of Ávila

“As soon as I took this photo I knew it wasn’t in focus and mentally made a note to delete it. When I reviewed the shots later I found this image of a heart in place of the moon. I had been waiting to use this quote from Teresa until I found an image I felt would fit with it. When I viewed what I considered a ‘non-usable’ photo and saw the image of the heart, I knew immediately this was the image to use. Because for me, what arouses me to love, my passion, is to be led to fit images with text.”

    • I am always impressed when a picture by someone else we don’t even know can transport us in memory to a place and time with special meaning personally.

  1. You are truly blessed, Heidi. There is another who had a somewhat similar experience. He saw a group of Italian pilgrims pointing at the moon, seeing some moon-phenomena. He saw just a full moon but decided to take pictures. The photos showed a heart shaped moon, a replication of the moon forming a cross, then a figure of a child and another of a foetus. The testimony and pictures can be seen on a website `Medjugorje today`.
    Thankyou for such a beautiful and inspiring picture.

  2. Instead of meandering interminably on the website mentioned above, just google`Pilgrims were amazed by moon in Medjugorje/Medjugorje today`.
