The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. NKJV
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. NIV
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands have made. GT
I got up early this morning to watch the sun rise in the mountains. I like to dothis anywhere I am, at home or traveling. I am never disappointed! First there was haze but I could see the closest trees. The sound of crickets and tree frogs provided a background for what was to come. Gradually the sky got lighter, the cardinals, crows, blue jays, eagles, and other birds began a chorus of praise that set a tone of excitement. It seemed the trees got greener as the skies got bluer. Dogs were barking in the distance that got other dogs barking. Probably, because they had seen a deer…rabbit…bear…but still, an interesting layer to this symphony of praise. As the sun began to rise its rays fell on a distant mountain and slowly and highlighted in the light of a new day.
These precious moments are a reminder to me to slow down, watch, wait and savor the beauty of all that is around me. This incredible picture occurs everywhere and is a gift to me (us) from the One and Only who wants me to wake up each morning praising Him and enjoying what He is going to provide for me that day. God is so good!!!!
Heavenly Father, I give You all praise, honor, and glory. You have created beauty all around me. You alone created the earth and all that is in it. What an awesome and mighty God.
