The Heavens Proclaim

    Since we've moved to our house in the country, I've marveled that every day the sky looks different from the day before; each day lovely in its' own way. Being a city girl my whole life, I had never realized there was an infinite variety of cloud formations nor had I noticed the glorious shades of pink and purple that can't be discovered in a tube of paint. I'm awestruck over a Creator who can brush such artistry into being.
    I can remember the first time I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I stood there in the "Monet" room with tears rolling down my face. I had only seen his paintings in books before. In person, I was bowled over by such light and such beauty. But that is nothing compared to the handiwork of The Artist who spoke all color and form into being.
    During my days of depression I just saw everything in shades of grey. It's a testimony to God's healing that now I can see the beautiful colors of everyday things.
"The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak, night after night they make Him known", Psalm 19:1-2.

  1. I love gazing at cloud formations and it's amazing to find something that is shaped like an angel, a heart, etc...And these past few days where the blue skies were so clear and didn't have any clouds at all, it's still beautiful knowing how vast His canvass is...That's awesome that you are seeing the beauty of His works and at the same time, praying that each beautiful thing you see will always bring you joy. Blessings to you sister.
