Have you taken any good looks at the clouds lately? If I were a poet I would be able to express this beauty in similes and analogies, but unfortunately my practical prosaic mind does not think that way. In other words, watching clouds and meditating on them is not on my “to do” list. But perhaps it should be. The psalmist David out in the pastures looking after the sheep had time to do that. While he was watching out for wolves and bears and lions he was able to look up at the skies by day and see the cumulus clouds against the blue sky and exclaim, “When I look at the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?”
Humbling, isn’t it? Make time today to put on a light jacket, gloves, hat and scarf and look up. The clouds, coupled with the trees changing colors, from green to reds and golds; walnut trees filled with big green balls against the blue sky with the sun’s radiant rays shining through the leaves, you will surely stand in awe and witness God’s glory, power, wisdom, and love.
