I took this one on Friday morning. Yes, I was in my car, but don't worry... I was at a stop light. :) I had dropped the kiddos off to school, and I was going to pick up a Starbucks treat for the hubby and myself. This was the scenery for my little roadtrip.
The sky enamors me. People are constantly changing what's on the ground. We add and take away from nature... with buildings and landscaping. Road construction and businesses are always popping up or coming down. It's all around us. A few years ago, a WalMart was built in the neighborhood where my husband and I lived when our first son was born. Our old apartment complex was completely wiped out to make way for the new store and its neighboring businesses. It's just the way life is.... the world in which we live.
But the sky remains the same, at least to the naked eye. It looks like the same sky I saw when I was a little girl. I can remember my sister and I looking out the back window of the station wagon, on long car rides home from visiting family in "the country," and we'd look at the starts at night... or the clouds during the day. It's the same sunshine that I used to lie beneath in my parents' back yard during warm summer days. And it's the same moon and stars that my best friend and I used to climb to watch from the top of the highschool roof down the street from her house.
Something about the vastness of it brings comfort to me. From where we are, it looks to be never ending! And it's only a small portion of the wonder that God has created. Isn't it amazing that He shares it with us?
