NaBloPoMo Gratitude # 14

There was a really fabulous sunrise this morning. The sky was streaked pink, orange and violet. There was fire behind the clouds that made me think about why the ancients must have believed that heaven was there. The wind was also absolutely amazing out here on the prairie today. At one point it was over forty miles an hour, just howling across fields and parking lots with vengance. It was a portent of things to come here very, very soon. One of the things I have never stopped loving about living out here is being closer to nature. God is in the sunrise and in the wind.
Glorify the Lord, all you works of the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him for ever.
In the firmament of his power, glorify the Lord,
praise him and highly exalt him forever
BCP p. 88

What a wonderful way to start the morning.

yup...we can have cityscapes by Walmart, and sometimes landscapes by Snopes -- but the skies are Tiepolo all the way!
