Finally, The Cheney 2007 Holiday Card: The Great Lights

Vp-Inside-500

Okay, well I finally dug up the 2007 Cheney holiday card.  On most counts, it’s about the most generic thing you’ve ever seen in your life.  But then, I got to thinking about how the words went with the picture.

The inside (above) reads:

GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD OF LORDS;

WHO MADE THE GREAT LIGHTS –

HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER.

PSALM 136: 3,7 (NIV)

The front is below (with my letters and arrows).  Sure, I’d like to know what you extract from this scene.  But, my question is:

In referring to “great lights,” are they referring to A … or (occupants of) B?
