The Skies Proclaim

While driving to the hospital to make a visit, I noticed the sunset was incredibly amazing.

Not sure that I had ever seen anything quite like it before, I wanted to get some photographs of it.

Shadows were reaching up from the horizon, crossing different layers of clouds, making finger-like projections.

The entire collage of sun, shadow and clouds was inhabiting so much of the western sky, its vastness made the earth seem small in comparison.

Many of my friends later communicated to me that they had seen this glorious sight, also.

One of them referred to it all as, “God art.”

I agree.

God was allowing us to see great beauty above as He pulled the blanket of sky and clouds away for the night, sending this half of the world to rest until dawn.

~

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.

—Psalm 19:1-4

Whatever You Do

Rabbits hop.

Eagles soar.

I play the piano….

If I am anywhere near a piano, I usually have the urge to play it.

In my opinion, any piano in my vicinity is simply silent, waiting for me to tell it what to say.

As I sit in front of the keys, many times my fingers relay a message of praise to God.

The strings and hammers respond with complete obedience and a melodious hymn vibrates from their midst.

Those who hear may or may not recognize the sounds as being an offering, yet God knows every note I play as it pairs with the strings of my heart.

I have a voice.

It is simply silent, waiting for me to tell it what to say.

Will my words be those of praise?

Will they encourage others?

Will they show God’s love?

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

—1 Corinthians 10:31
