(Couldn’t sleep, so I’m posting this early. 😅) The first week of 2019 came in with colors. Several days were rainy, but the few that weren’t were amazing. I thought about waiting for the January In Photos post, but I decided I couldn’t wait that long to share these. I’m too excited. 😂 Also, I didn’t compress these images as I usually do to save space – want these to be in the best quality possible. So without further ado… I present the morning of the New Year.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. (Psalm 19:1 NKJV)
The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory. (Psalm 97:6 NKJV)
His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise. (Habakkuk 3:3 NKJV)
O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens! (Psalm 8:1 NKJV)
And a couple of shots of the foggy mornings after that:
“I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.” (Isaiah 44:22 NASB)
And here is the morning of the 6th! It was the most incredible yet!
“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.” (First Chronicles 29:11 NASB)
(I can’t help it, now I’m going to revert to giving some commentary.) I love the clouds here. Also, see that speck on the top of the tree in the center? I almost didn’t.
It was a bird! “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” (Matthew 6:26 NKJV)
The clouds kept getting more amazing. Didn’t think I could like it any more than I already did, but it just kept getting better and better.
The name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19 NKJV)
And brighter and brighter! The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. (Revelation 21:23, NKJV) Just think – if the sky and heavens are this brilliant, how much more will the Creator of this masterpiece shine?!
Finally, with this photo, I stopped because I could tell the sun was close to breaking out, and I didn’t want to damage my camera’s lens.
How has your New Years been so far? 😊
