A skyward light show

Yesterday I arrived home to this spectacular light show.

Evening Lightshow

I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

I was enjoying it so much, I almost didn’t want to run inside for my camera. There was just enough time for this one shot over my backyard fence before the best light was gone.

It was such a beautiful moment. I hope you enjoy it too.

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.
