Who Paints the Sky?

sunset skyI wanted chocolate tonight. I didn’t need it.

Definitely wanted it. Definitely didn’t need it.

So instead of driving to the supermarket after dinner I went for a walk. I soon succumbed to the beauty of the evening and my surroundings, and the chocolate craving disappeared. Mission accomplished.

But my walk was more than a diversion; it became a gift.

I’m often fascinated by the sky, with all its glorious colours, and patterns in the clouds. It may be completely different from one day to the next. And when I see a sunrise or a sunset it seems to me that the Lord is painting me a glorious canvas, telling me how much he loves me. And it’s a gift that expands my heart and fills me with peace, joy and thankfulness to the lover of my soul.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1

Here are some more of my photos of this evening’s painted sky. I hope you enjoy them.
