Have you ever looked up at the sky to watch the clouds move into different shapes? What about when you were a child and tried to name the shapes? Living in Florida, clouds are part of our environment.
i think we have the most wonderful cloud formations in the world. And I guess I'm not alone! I joined the Florida Cloud Appreciation Society with hundreds of others who love Florida skies. Each day people post photos of sunrises, sunsets, storms, and every type of cloud formation there is. And these photos are breathtakingly beautiful!
Look up, for your salvation draws near! (Luke 21:28). Look up and see the Creator in the clouds! The Florida sky is like a moving palette of colors painted by a Creator who dazzles us. Our weather is constantly changing....sunny billowy clouds, then dark thunderstorms followed by dancing white clouds.
Painting in the field requires a great sensitivity to choosing which cloud formation to paint. The wild thunderstorm with flashing lightning has to be captured quickly while white fluffy clouds caressing the sky make a good background to paint slowly. Sunrise and sunset colors bring out the best in a palette.
All of the clouds speak deeply to my spirit! Clouds reveal the majesty of the Creator and make my heart leap in response. I'm grateful for the beauty found in the Florida skies.
