Need help? Look up!

Recently I’ve taken to looking at the sky. It isn’t a normal for me. I’m usually preoccupied with the many things happening in my life. I see the sky, but I don’t really see it. What is typical for me is the daily routine of life that I motor through, you know, the daily chores, teaching, cleaning, working, cooking, and shopping.

I don’t often stop to smell the roses or look at the clouds.

At church I’ve heard many sermons lately about being thankful in all circumstances, especially those in which we have no control. Our pastor unfolds story after story with real examples about people who have no reason to be thankful and yet they are. One of my long-time friends is a pediatrician. She stopped practicing long ago to be a full-time wife and mother. Her children are now adults and she took up missionary work. This was short lived as she was diagnosed with cancer. (In remission now, please join me in praying for Mary.) Yet she praises God in all things! At coffee one morning she shared how touched she was by the splendor of God’s work in the beauty of nature and how she feels it is a gift just for her.

How thankful am I?

Colossians 3:15 says: Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

And so I’ve been thanking the Lord for everything — and I mean everything. The fabulous days, and the not-so-fabulous ones as well. As a result, it is as if the blinders have been taken off and I’m seeing the clouds for the first time. I’m enthralled with the formations, the color, and the Lord seems to be blessing me with these beautiful arrays! Just as my friend shared, I feel that it is a gift just for me!

The first photo was taken in the early morning. Isn’t that an amazing sky? I’ve never seen anything like it. Only the hands of God can create that type of pattern and beauty. The second is a late afternoon sky which is typical for this area.

By looking up, I see the beauty and majesty of God and it gives me time to pause and to wonder!
