Figures of the True

Amy Carmichael has a slim book called Figures of the True.  It is a collection of meditations on some photos that someone sent her in her illness.  Each picture, she says, is a “Figures of the True”: “For surely they are not only lovely pictures of fragments of a lovely creation, they are patterns of things we all know if we have ever really lived: they are Figures of the True.”  Everything in God’s creation points to Him if only we have the eyes to see.
