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.

  6. Beautiful Clouds. I have always been a cloud watcher. I love to see the different formations and the brilliant colors that can be seen in them. Great images. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. 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!


  8. Oh, I LOVE that thought for today!
    And the images are Amazing!

  11. These beautiful pictures bring to me the memory of my mother singing her favorite song, "How Great Thou Art".

  13. Your cloud formations are just awesome. I love the light and dark of them. Seems you could reach out and touch them. Beautiful. The verse so appropriate. Glory to God!

  14. Oh my - that first image is a beaut!! I would love to see that framed on a wall - I could stare at it for hours!

  15. I love clouds, and love seeing them from all over the world. Those thunderheads are massive.

  16. 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!!

  17. seeing clouds like that - just make me want to shout out praise to our Creator! Wow is he awesome.

    If things here on earth are so wonderful - like this -
    can you imagine heaven? I think we will have our socks knocked off!

  18. those clouds are amazing.
    love the one where you can see the rain coming down and the cloud is so brilliantly white.
    and i love that verse....i think of it often when i see wonderful scenes such as this.
    how can anyone deny the great Creator when they see this?

    have a blessed weekend.
