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?

Cloud shadowsI posted this recently, but I didn't really say much about it. It was a spectacular sun chasing day with clouds creating the perfect ambiance. Here, we see a brilliant sun, beaming its radiant light on the clouds, which then cast shadows across the sky. I love cloud shadows. They are so entertaining. Molten sun melts the skyThe above shot was captured a little later that same day. I love it when the sun is almost molten lava in the sky, melting the sky around it, in a fiery corona.Crepuscular rays and cloud shadowsFinally, every cloud has a silver lining... the cloud is no exception. Except this one also presents crepuscular rays and cloud shadows. It was taken the same day as the other day, but slightly earlier.

I have been encouraged lately by a group of heart-warming storm chasers, who are helping me with a project I am working on. A while back, I was contacted by the mother of a 4 year old weather enthusiast. Adam looking at the skyThe little boy, Adam is a special needs child who has developed this huge passion for weather and storm chasing. She contacted me to help nurture and develop that passion in him. As a result, I put out an appeal to my friends for them to send me weather related stuff to send to Adam. Jay Reid (a founding member of the Southern Weather Brigade) started it out with a substantial care package for our little friend, Adam, henceforth dubbing the project, Project Adam! This, of course, fueled my passion for the project and encouraged me to step up the appeal. Since then, members of the Southern Weather Brigade and kind members of the storm chasing community nationwide have stepped in with offers of gifts for this precious little boy. Special thanks to Jay, Jeff, Rick, Ken, JB, Mike W., Mike D. Mikey S., Mike H., Peggy, Jennifer, James, Jamie, and Brandon, who have promised items so far! It really makes me proud to be a part of this group and more importantly to count these folks among my friends. Thanks for helping brighten the heart of this precious little boy. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. If you are interesting in helping with this project, send me an email at dewdrop_in_sga @ (sorry, you will have to type it... trying to avoid a spam attack!)

Be strong in the Lord; never give up hope. You're gonna do great things, I already know. God's got his hand on you, so don't live life in fear. Forgive and forget, and don't forget while you're here, take your time to pray.
Have a beautiful day and God bless you!!
