Sky Watch Friday

                "O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our  Maker."                                                              
                                                                Psalm 95:6 

                                                        God grant me the serenity 
                                                   to accept the things I cannot change; 
                                                   courage to change the things I can;
                                                   and wisdom to know the difference.




                                                Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3, 5-6



                   This beautiful sunset just happened in minutes. It was a good thing I was outside the house and I saw this marvelous and glorious explosion of colors right in my backyard.  I was in awe watching the sky change from light color, to vibrant,  to dark. I did basically took almost a 100 shots just to capture every second of it.

Yes, it's an awesome display of God's power and magnificence when we feel we are so small and insignificant in front of God's display of His awesomeness. I love the accompanying captions. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
