Dramatic Skies

Every time we encourage someone, we give them an infusion of courage.
I trust that you will find at least a small measure of encouragement in this blog.

All photos are taken by me,Ruth,unless otherwise noted.
Most of you know that I love watching the sky and here are a few scenes that I have been privileged to see and capture with my camera. I will add some quotes which I have found and enjoyed.

"May God give you eyes to see beauty only the heart can understand."


"When God opens the door of opportunity, we can be sure He will give us the strength to walk through it."


"God still speaks— we just have to open our Bibles and listen."


"Give what you have.
To someone it may be better than you dare to think.'


Be Kind Today
"Rather than argue, agree to disagree."


Closing Thought:
No matter how far apart we are,
I'll always be thinking of you, my friend,
because you mean the world to me.

Ruth, very dramatic skies! You know how much I love dramatic skies! I always try to get some in a landscape photo! Manitoba is great for these kinds of Skies. I like that you can see what is coming for miles off!

Wonderful, Ruth!! Both the words and the pictures. The first one gives me such a sense of enormity!! And my next favorite is the one with the fence posts. It is so wonderful!!! Reminds me of an Andrew Wyeth painting. It communicates both sorrow and joy.

All skies, but all different and all beautiful. I love the old fence in the third photo.

"Give what you have."

This could mean so many things. Maybe you have only a few words, but they could mean the world to someone.

Oh, Ruth, these all speak to me, and I love skies, too. Roger and I are always telling each other to come look! Or if we are driving, we are telling each other to look at that sky, or that cloud!

I love these, Ruth. So beautiful. I love sky/cloud watching, too, and yesterday we had some wonderful white fluffy clouds. I had a hard time keeping my eyes on the road as I was driving. The first photo in this series is my favorite. Have a nice day and weekend!
