When I Look

When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which You have set in place,
 what is man that You are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that You care for him?

–Psalm 8:3-4

 

When I left the grocery store, it was beginning to get dark.

The traffic was busy on the two lane highway toward home.

As I looked at the sky in front of me, I realized how beautiful it was.

Passing my street and driving on a little farther down the road to a clearing, I stopped the car and took a picture.

Venus was white and blazing above a creamy glow of pale orange and yellow.

When I look at the sky like this, I see the mighty work of God.
