The Splendor of Him

Today, like many other days, I left my house in total darkness. A few mornings this week I could see the sliver of the moon still high in the sky as I pulled out of my driveway to begin my hour commute north to the capital city of Hartford. A short time after leaving my home I entered the commuter lot where I would park my car and climb into the Easy Street van to “let someone else do the driving”. As I relaxed my back against the seat I caught a glimpse of the sky to the east. Pink and purple were exploding in the sky. God’s handiwork in all its Glory.

There are many occasions when I am blessed enough to witness such beauty and always pause at the splendor with gratitude toward the Creator. Today however I chose to post my observation on Facebook. All day long I have been blessed by my friends and even a few strangers commenting on my page. It truly amazes me just how good He is. When we take the time to thank Him and share His glory with the world, He blesses us even further.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”

  1. Beautiful piece…thank you sharing! Jewish tradition actually has a special blessing upon seeing a natural wonder. I hope your day was as rich as its beginning.


  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am on a journey right now with a group of ladies to starting Tuesday on discussing the Creator! I am excited and look forward to the wonder of
    God being revealed. Your post certainly resonates with me today. Blessings as we live in this very moment for His Glory. Alesia
