A Little Angel!

She Looks Like A Little Angel!
She Looks Like A Little Angel! 😯

And, as so often babies are described as being cherubic in appearance, here’s the Christians’ Bible’s description of the Cherubim:

(10) And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel. (11) When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went. (12) And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had. (13) As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel. (14) And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

Ezekiel 10-14 (KJV)

Perhaps it would be better and less horrifying to biblical scholars to say that she looked like a little Putto. 🙂

And yes, girl child or not, please do call them Putto-esque, even though the word technically means boy toddler. Given the gender suffixes in Italian, it’s probably best not to use the female form. 😆

Shoulder Cosmology

Shoulder Cosmology Of The Religious Sort
(Click to Enlarge)

Cosmology in the religious as opposed to the secular, anti-theist context, is the explanation of the origin, evolution, and eventual fate of the universe, from a more natural, religious perspective. It is also largely irrelevant to us mortals. Our personal cosmology is what we should be concerned about, not Creation’s.

So, rather than considering Heaven’s plan for creation, consider the state of your own soul and the angel and devil on your shoulders.

Of course, if you’re at all like me, you’re more likely considering how to get either your angel or your devil on both your shoulders. 😉
