Tonight, I went for a walk. Our day had been jam-packed full of events - celebrating birthdays, traveling great distances just for a lunch date, enjoying our county fair (look for another blog on that soon!) I needed the time to decompress and think.
I love the sky in Colorado. It's wide open. Where we live, you can see from horizon to horizon. There are very few trees here. If anything blocks the view, it's grain elevators. And the color is unlike anywhere else. A beautiful, intense crystal blue. And the sunsets - wow! Breathtaking.
The sun was in its last moments of the day, and a few clouds were scattered through the sky. I had been chatting with God a bit when I turned a corner and saw this little cloud. It had such a bird shape to it. The song, "On the Wings of a Snow-White Dove" came to mind immediately. I don't know all the words, so as I made my way home, I kept repeating that one line over and over again. But it was a neat reminder of God's love for us.
Within just a few moments, the cloud changed, as clouds do. The sun slipped down below the horizon. And I walked home in the dark. But I wasn't alone. I had a Companion who had filled my heart.
So, if you're feeling weary and worn down, look up. You never know what message the sky may hold for you.
