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.
If I can appreciate the works of Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Renoir and Monet, then how much more should I be in awe of the Master Artist?
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.

Just stopping by to say that I love your pictures. I take pictures of the sky too, almost every day, and although I do not share them online, I am definitely fascinated by them. Lovely photos – the sky is such a beautiful, dynamic wonder.
Loved the pictures and the post. Makes me think of the Chris Tomlin song “Indescribable”…I wrote a similar post a while back called “All You Can Say is Wow!” I take one of my favorite scenes from the Shack and write about it’s impact on me.
Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your postings. Blessings
Beautiful words, beautiful photos. Let’s be sure to dance on the clouds when we rejoice in heaven, ok?
I have been thoroughly enjoying the fall colors that light up the sky this year. They make the sky even bluer. God is such an artist.
Love the pictures. Just to know that God is everywhere, and you get reminded of this everyday!
