I have a thing for clouds...cirrus, stratus, cumulus, but its not a scientific thing. Its just that they fascinate me - I could look at them for hours.
Anyway, tonight on the way home, I saw the most AMAZING sky. I wish I had a picture, but I was already in danger of wrecking my car and probably didn't need the added distraction of trying to photograph it while I was driving. I can't even really describe it in words, but I'll try.
I was driving down 64 West...first, I saw a cloud that looked like a mountain... then, it changed and looked like the parting of the Red Sea, walls of clouds on both sides with a path of blue sky in between, the sun shining through. Whenever I see skies like this I think of the return of Christ and get all excited. Anyway -- I got off at hwy 55, and as I started to turn ...............I saw it, or at least the beginning of it.....a rainbow, and as I continued to turn onto 55, I saw more of it....a full arch! I can't remember the last time I saw a full arch rainbow (okay, maybe, I think it was in Mexico a few years ago). It was beautiful and so big. Rainbows are reminders of God's promise....what a wonderful reminder.
So, yes I do get kind of excited about clouds, and skies. They are God's artwork... these awesome, glorious displays show me who God is, what he is like...they show me a glimpse of his beauty, his glory, his majesty, his grandeur. I am reminded how big he is... how wonderful he is. After a long day, when I am usually tempted to complain, suddenly things come into perspective. I can't help but magnify Him in those moments.
