Artwork in the Sky

This past week I went on a cruise to the Bahamas.

Each day I was amazed several times a day by God’s amazing artwork in the sky.

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

 

“Son” light shining bright

I feel a sadness in the darkness as I awaken this morning.

Tears drops slip down my face as thoughts of yesterday plague my mind.

As I turn over planning to bury my face in my pillow to go back to sleep I glimpse the moon through my window, full and shining bright.

Before my eyes the moon begins descending down the sky taking along with it the darkness.

On the other side of my room from different window, the sun, hidden below the dark horizon begins making its ascent up the sky.

Orange fingers of sunlight begin clutching the edge of the darkness as if grasping on to pull itself up, tinting the sky to a perfect shade of pink and blue.

I feel peacefulness overcome me as I perch on the edge of this place where yesterday ends and today begins.

The sun light slowly washes away the darkness on one side of the sky while the moon slips down below the horizon on the other side, taking yesterday away as this new day begins.

No matter how dark things may seem Jesus is always here, He is the light.  Jesus is the “Son” light that always shines bright.

You, Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light. 2 Samuel 22:29
This is the day the Lord has made; we (I) will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
