Against a tasty backdrop of pastries, fruit, and vegetables, photographers Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida have created a series of humorous dioramas that depict miniature people going about their daily lives in an edible world. Titled MINIMIAM, a play on words that marries miniature and “yummy” (miam in French), the project has been ongoing since 2002 and was inspired by the married couple’s profession as commercial food photographers.
If we believe we are citizens of heaven, we should have confidence to serve as ambassadors for Christ, here on Earth.
Note to future self:
When you don’t get it right —
Apologize quickly and let go.
Don’t beat yourself up or defend yourself too long.
Humans are squishy with small brains. We don’t get it right every time.
And that’s okay. Being wrong is not the end of the world.
Learning this now.
I like that: squishy with small brains.
aiaiaiiii I NEVER WANNA HEAR YOU SAyy~
why is this world so cursed……….. and how are you going to redeem this again? Sometimes I really wonder… and then… I can understand the flood. I sure would want to flood the earth again, wipe out population, start again with a faithful family. But… for some reason, you promised to never do that again. And for some reason, you still reach out to us, and initiate contact. For SOME VERY STRANGE REASON, you actually decided to be killed on our behalf. (see Hebrews 12)
I can’t imagine looking out upon this world, in its cursed state, thinking that something could be done, that these people could actually do something, that they could bring about change. And yet, that is God’s vision for us, as His people. He chose us in Him way before, and chose to live in us, that through us something might change, this cursed world might bear a semblance of Goodness. Redemption is a funny thing, so is reconciliation. the funniest thing of all, though, is that we as God’s people are part of this—no, HIS great, marvelous story of redeeming this cursed world.
