Late afternoon, about 3:00 or so now...
There is a show in the skies that you don't want to miss..
Annie and I walk now in the late afternoon, we don't want to be late...
When the glory of the Lord is in display in the skies
I want to bask in the delight of it all.
We have walked most every afternoon this week, and each day,
the creative skies have enraptured my heart.
Like a scroll written across the skies, the heavens declare the glory of the Lord.
Barren branches glorified in billows of color.
Blackened silhouettes allow the backdrop to take center stage.
Magnificence in the skies, unparalleled elegance.
While trees and their glorious colors
dazzled us with their fashion show in October,
now the skies take center stage.
Pink fog! Ohh!
With the skies emboldened,
I had to go where my feet could not
And my rain-studded rear view mirror
caught a glimpse of the brilliance of the skies.
November's late afternoon brilliance. Enraptured, words escape my lips, of praise.
I quietly sat down by the river, as the last royal colors faded into the darkness.
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard,
that the everlasting God, the LORD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth,
fainteth not, neither is weary?
There is no searching of his understanding.
He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
Is there weariness in your soul today?
There is solace in knowing the ONE
who orchestrates this world with precision and order,
Who cares just as much about you today
as the world obedient to His care.
Lift your eyes to Him, trust Him
Cast your cares on Him.
For in this turmoil-ridden November,
the Lord has shown me
In Him, ALL is well.
As I sip a cup of cinnamon tea in my mismatched little tea party,
and reflect on all I have seen
it gives me faith and hope for the future.
Peace, great peace from above
settles itself in my heart,
I am refreshed.
All is well.
