Light in the Clouds

What an encouraging weekend this was! The conference was wonderful, and I'll have a post (or posts!) coming soon about it, but in the interim, I'll be sharing a few other ones (like our much enjoyed day at the state fair.) And these photos that were taken the other evening as a storm approached . . . .


A small flash of lightning in the clouds 


It was so neat to watch the colors and the clouds changing and then see lightning in them, too!

The heavens truly do declare the glory of God . . . a God so infinitely powerful and wise that He could create such a beautiful world (though now tainted by the effects of sin.) His creation does indeed bring praise to Him . . . it is a reflection of His "eternal power and divine nature" (Romans 1:20.)

It is a reminder of His goodness and faithfulness, that all things continue to be held together by Him.

And today, I am thanking Him for that, for His goodness and faithfulness . . . for who He is.

  5. My whole family loves to watch clouds. They could pretty fluffy ones, streaky tails of cloud or even huge thunderheads. It does not matter. So much better than television. Thank you for sharing your pictures they do share His majesty.
