For Take Me Home Tuesday, I’ve made a compilation of “sky” pictures that I’ve taken over the past year. (also one that my daughter has taken) All these pictures are from my home…or just down the road.
I realize that God is so much more than His creations, but every time I look at the heavens I am reminded of what a creative God I serve. He didn’t have to make nature beautiful, He chose to do that.
The sheer brilliance of a new day… sunlight splashing across a sleepy sky. When I took this early morning picture the Hallelujah chorus was playing in my mind. Can’t you hear it?
Muted shades of gray before a summer storm.
Angry, darkness in the middle of the afternoon. Black clouds rolling as if waves in a vast ocean.
The heavens declare the glory of God.
Even a glimpse of His work, shouts aloud that there is, indeed, a Creator.
The luminescent pinks. The indigo blues.
With His hand the sky begins to fade.
As night descends…
As the sun sets on another day, the sky will not sleep…because God does not sleep.
Now begins the breath taking views of the night.
I could stare at the sky forever.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world. Psalm 19: 1-4 NIV
The sky is unique, in that all people can see it. All countries, all continents, all races, all nationalities and tribes…
Lift up your eyes and see.
