The sky above proclaims His handiwork

These are just a few of the amazing views that Lew and I have gotten to see in the last week. The sunset and rainbow are from here, and the sunrises are from the beach. There is something about standing in front of the vast ocean and watching the sun come up that makes you feel so finite. It never ceases to amaze me how our glorious Creator has intricately designed all of His creation to bring Him glory. I hope you enjoy these pictures....I won't say much else, but I will leave you with some verses that these images made me think of:

Psalm 19:1-6

The heavens declare the glory of God and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours out speech and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor are there words whose voice is not heard. Their measuring line goes out and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and like a strong man runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

The amazing thing about the sun is that it is really just a display of our powerful Creator. If the sun in all its splendor is so powerful, how much more is our God?

Isaiah 40:12,15,25-26

Who has measured the waters in the hollows of His hands and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in the scales and the hills in a balance...Behold the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales; behold He takes up coastlands like fine dust... To whom will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and see who created these. He who brings our their host by number calling them all by name by the greatness of His might, and because He is strong in power not one is missing.
