Heavenly…

Sometimes it takes going above the clouds to reflect on the vast beauty of the heavens and the Creator who made them. 

 sky1

Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”

sky2

Psalm 96: 11-13 “Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it;  let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.”

sky3

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

sky4

Deuteronomy 10:14 “To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.”

What has recently caused you to stop and reflect on the awesomeness of our Creator?

    I have been married for 31 years… had 5 children in 5 years…
    You get the picture…
    When they grow up, worries are different and children don’t always do what you expect from them… You can feel quite grumpy!
    The other day I looked at a picture of our 5 young adults and I had such a flow of thankfulness towards our Lord. He really spoiled us!
    I sent the picture to my kids saying I loved them so dearly, each one of them.
    I kept singing to the Lord: Thank You!

        Thanks!
        And their reactions were great too…
        One burst out laughing…
        Two wrote back saying thank you and that they loved me too…
        One asked me why I reacted like this… so it was another occasion to talk of my personal relation to God…
        And one said nothing, but ran out to have the same hair cut he had on that picture!
        (I knew he would think he looked great and want to look just the same!!!!!!!)
        :-)))))))

    Those are gorgeous pictures that make you stop and think of the wonder of Creation! I see God’s grace each day in my children. When they beg to read “just one more Bible story”. When they pray together each night. When I see all of the blessings He has bestowed upon us.

    Gorgeous images.

    Sometimes it really is the most simply things that give you the most profound perspective.

    Breathtaking! The other day, as I drove home from church, I passed through our town green and saw some of the leaves just beginning to turn. Just a touch of orange and crimson sprinkled throughout… and I was just captivated by the amazing, colorful world our Lord has given to us as a home!

    There is something about the sky that makes us think more about God. He is just so creative with those clouds!
