The Heavens Declare...

While looking through our collection of pictures,wondering what to share today,
I found the following shots.
As I looked at these and thought about them,the following verse came to mind.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
Psalm 19:1

The towering clouds of a thunderstorm,are massive,reaching high into the sky.
These show the awesome power of God at work.

I have to wonder just how high this cloud formation is.
I love to see these storms and marvel at the beauty of them.


Just look at the details of this cloud.

I end this post with a recent sunset picture.
Those clouds are on fire,at least that is what it looks like.

Thought for today:
All the beautiful sentiments in the world
weigh less than a single lovely action.

Lovely photos and words.

Oooo... I love those towering thunderheads. Sometimes if I can get out of the mountains and into some open space, I can get a glimpse of one and they are so neat to watch as they can form right before your eyes! You have some beautiful photos!

Hugs♥

Your photos of those stunning clouds are excellent! How great is our God! The thunderclouds we had overhead for almost 2 hrs. today were dark and pouring rain. Love the white puffy towers!!

Valerie said...

If things here on earth are so wonderful - like this -
