The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

So, I was headed home last night from a wonderful birthday celebration dinner with my wonderful groom last night, when I couldn’t help but notice out of the corner of my eye, God was having Him a little fireworks display up in the clouds. It was so powerful driving up the ride with the side of my face frequently radiating in the brilliant light. Well, then it happened, I turned eastward toward where the storm was, and what a show. Intoxicating explosions of light emanated from deep within the enormous cloud structure which covered the entire sky. It was mesmerizing. The sky was awash with a fascinating purple glow. Driving into that was quite a distraction, as you can well imagine.When we arrived home, I did the only logical thing, I grabbed my camera and started shooting from the safety of my metal cage sun room. I stood in the door way with the lens pointed to the sky and snapped away. I caught a couple of shots, nothing to write home about, but the sky… ahhh… nice to experience that.
We do have another tropical storm, which was named this morning. Tropical Storm Colin was named between Africa and the Windward Islands, and though it is still really too early to tell, it looks like Colin might miss the Leeward Islands to the north and actually become a fish storm never even making it to hurricane status. I’m sure that would have many in the Gulf breathing a sigh of relief, but please realize, it’s still early, ANYTHING can happen!!
