God's Paintbrush


Yesterday was a cloudy and rainy day here at Chincoteague. Late in the day, the clouds moved out to sea, and as we drove around to the beach, the sun was setting. With the decayed beach area, you can now stand and look both east (onto the ocean) and west (across the bay from Assateague) at the same time. We watched the beauty of the red and golden clouds as the sunset. Moments later, the partial moon was illuminating the waves on the ocean.

In a very short time we were engulfed in reds, yellows, golds, pinks, blues, greys, silvers, and many shades in-between. When God gets out His palette - He uses as many colors as He can. My wife and I were mesmerized by the glory of our Father. With broad strokes, and fine details He makes this world beautiful.

As David so perfectly declared - "The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world." (Psalm 19: 1-4a NLT)

We really got the full effect yesterday. Maybe we were looking for it - in fact, that is probably why we miss it so often. Take a moment and look for His handiwork around you now.
