I rise early in the morning, make a cup of coffee and head to my study to watch the world wake up from my study window. It was dark this morning and as the sun began to rise the sky was a display of God’s glory. Imagine me in my pajamas with camera in hand hurrying out into the yard to take a picture. I wanted to remember the display of God’s creative beauty for the rest of the day. I also hoped the neighbors were still in bed!
It is the small things in life like watching a sunrise that help us enjoy life and God’s creation. According to Genesis 1:3, God created sunrises and sunsets on the first day and they have continued to cause us awe for billions of years.
The sky showed signs of red this morning. We have all heard, Red skies at night, sailor’s delight, red skies in the morning, sailors take warning. Did you know that Jesus said it first?
Matthew 16:1-4 NRSV (New Revised Standard Version)
The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. 2But He replied to them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' 3"And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?…
It’s amazing what you can find in the Bible isn’t it?
Have a happy day… God Bless You!
