Awe and Wonder
You already know that I live where the sky is very big. You also might know how I am so amazed at the changes in the sky, the varying colors and cloud formations, and how no day seems to be the same as any before when it comes to what I see above me. Tonight, I stepped outside about 10 PM, and my mouth opened with an "Ohhhhhhhhh!" and a "Wow!" The lights across the bay and throughout the surrounding hills were beautiful, but nothing compared to the constellations in the sky, the Milky Way as clear as I have ever seen it. I'm thankful to have this beauty, and this good weather when others do not. I'm even more thankful, however, and "thankful" isn't even a big enough word, to the Creator of our universe who thought to make something so beautiful for me to see. I wonder how He knew what things would impress me the most! I am in awe of One so great, of One so loving, of One so close, enveloping me in His creation. "Our God is an Awesome God", and I wish I could share the beauty of my world with you. Words are not enough, and a picture would not do it justice. I hope you find the beauty in your world too.
