Joining the Applause

by | Jul 1, 2012 | Uncategorized

It’s sunset and I open the front door to water plants outside. My eyes widen at the sight of vibrant artwork hanging sky. I set the watering can down on the front stoop, run back inside for the camera. And while I stand in grass barefoot, watch Him turn the kalidescope of color, I think I can hear it. All of heaven claps in ovation.

I’m joining the Applause, a global event to take note of the beauty of our Creator, and its as if he pulled back the curtain on the stage and said, “Let the show begin.”

Happy Sunday Friends!

    Beautiful art by our heavenly Father. I love picturing soapy like you, like me, standing barefoot in our yards trying to capture just a fragment of His grace– bless you, sweet friend.

    i always love to see the sunsets spread across the world. And, yes, I applause and rejoice. [I also laugh a bit and know you’ll understand this. The sunrises in Uganda were glorious and took a while, changing color over and over again. The sunsets went down so fast that if I saw the beautiful ones as you did and I ran in to grab a camera it would be gone in that very short time. I have LOTS of sunrise photos from that place; very few sunsets.]

    Fabulous! I do believe nature worships God, the trees clap their hands His Word says!
