Naturally Amazed

I’m awed by nature in many ways.  I’ll never get used to the awesome down pours we experience here, they just amaze me.  While at Joshua’s soccer game it started out as a very hot, humid, sunny afternoon.  So much so that we were wearing sunglasses, holding umbrellas overhead to help with the sun and wearing sunscreen.  The super sunny afternoon soon turned into a cloudy afternoon.  A huge dark cloud moved in, blocked the sun and we could feel the temperature drop plus we could smell the approaching rain.  I know I was supposed to be focused on the game, but I couldn’t help taking pictures of the sky.

Years ago, I would say Jonah was a toddler and Joshua was a preschooler when I took a Beth Moore study and she shared a suggestion to talk about God’s handiwork with your children in ways like when you see a sunset say something along the lines of look at the sky God painted for us.  I still do this to this day and the other night I told the boys to stop what they were doing, come outside and gaze at the beautiful sky God painted for us.  Below are the pictures of that beautiful sky.

    Your pictures are beautiful. Like you, I am always looking upward and praising God for the varying, amazing art work He creates for us. If He provides such breathtaking sky’s for us now, I can only imagine what He has created for heaven.

    Yep, no one could paint a sky like God does! Thanks for sharing a view from your side of the world, and, for sharing from your heart your appreciation for God’s handiwork. Love you!
