There is a beautiful waterfall very close to Glen Maye Chapel. It is in a deep valley and its probably the most lush, verdant place I know.
It inspired my painting for January.
In the first week we have the story of Jesus’ baptism. The ancients regarded birds as being holy, as they could cross from the heavens to the earth. So maybe a waterfall, which brings flowing water cascading from above, somehow speaks of baptism too.
The Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove.
