The Ever-Changing Sky

We were driving home late this afternoon following our family event in the Niagara area, and I couldn't help but notice the ever-changing sky as we travelled. It truly looked again like the brushstrokes of an Artist presenting a slide show for the world to see. I captured a few photos through the car window but they don't do justice to the beauty of the sky. I also thought about my daughter K, who is on the other side of the world in India. She looks up at the same sky and shares the same sun and moon as we do. From a young girl on, she has always loved looking up at the stars and knows all the constellations by name.
These photos are for you, sweetie, knowing that the same God who cares for us here is watching over you on the other side of the world and knows you by name....What a comfort that is!

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him? ... O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!" Psalm 8:3,4,9

For the director of music.
A psalm of David.
Psalm 19:1-6
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
