MY Brain.

Today I went for an MRI. I've been having some neurological symptoms lately and my doc wanted to check out all possibilities. I have no idea what it could be, but I have "peace that passes all understanding". Possibilites include Lupus, RA, some other autoimmune disease, or MS. I guess the MRI was looking for MS (or a brain thing, har har).

At any rate, the MRI machine is a great place for the Jesus prayer. I was clicking through the pictures on the DVD they sent home with me and found this image:



What do you see? I see a person kneeling at the foot of the cross, body is to the right of the cross, head/face to the left of the cross. Hair is hanging down.

I needed that today. God doesn't look at my fatigue and see a fat useless "lemon" of a person. That may be how I feel, but it's not the reality. This picture is like an icon of "me".

when I said "Icon of me" I wasn't thinking in terms of "Oh look I'm so holy, or i'm a saint" AT ALL...more like a computer icon...and image of where I try to stay mentally.

the more I look at this, I also see a second person standing on the left side of the cross, with a stole draped over the head of the kneeling person.

OK, I'll shut up now.

as soon as I saw the pic (before reading what you had written), I saw a cross and two folks under it...looks like one is burdened by it and the other has come along and is speaking to him/her

I also saw a second person on the left, but to me it looked like a woman reaching down to comfort you ... it made me think of the Theotokos.
