Thankful Thursday

LS:


The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Psalm 19:1


Have you ever watched a scene from the movies where everything surrounding the character is seen in a fast forward mode? The character? Dragging along ever slowly like a zombie.

Of late I find myself frequently acting out that part, until the pause button was hit (LOL). To tell me I've lost some of the joy. To ask me to look up to the sky. To show me these. So I've been doing a lot of skywatching. Thank you Lord, for the joy, peace and strength.


From the joyful rising of the sun...

...to the beautiful going down

At times it may seem that we're all alone

in the things we have to do...

But the Lord is around,

It's just sometimes

He's busy

painting the sky for us!


Wish I could blame it on the camera but the truth is my photography skill is terrible LOL. So these pictures really don't do justice to the real masterpiece.

I think we all need to stop & smell the roses from time to time; take notice of the beauty the Lord provided for us. Today I paused before opening a door just to watch a flock of birds knowing once I opened the door, they would all fly away. I even notice the inside of the onion on my burger was paisley shaped. To think God created an onion that looked like that shape then it is transformed into fashion. How cool is that. Your photos are beautiful esp the 1st one. Don't underestimate yourself. You might also want to check out Sky Watch Fridays. I think I have it in my blog list. If not, I will try to find it for you. Everything we see is a gift. It is up to us how we use what is given to us; how we use what we see. Never give up.

Blessings LS & Happy, Indeed Our LORD paints the sky so beautifully and your photos are great! Yours too, Happy! You look so Happy on your walk! Know how you love those walks.

Thanks so much for coming over for a visit and celebrating with me! I would like a pause button on age...
I'm so glad that as you watch the sky and marvel, our LORD gives you joy, strength and peace and He watches the sky over you with a very special design. You are His masterpiece and He delights greatly as I do each time we visit!

WOW! I just read your comments on my TT post. I did not realize I was such an encourager! That is awesome to know. I am an encourager. Glad I could encourage you. You also blew me away by saying I was a person of strength when I didn't really think I was. Then I thought about and I KNOW that I AM!Thanks for that. I come from a long line of strong women. I am strong. Hear me roar! LOL Hope you have a great weekend. Keep on taking those pictures. I hope to have more up on my blog soon.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Happy!
You are so right. Sometimes we are so focused on our things that we forget about the beauty that surrounds us!
Happy walkie, Happy??
Kisses and hugs

parlance said...

Happy, I'm guessing you're grateful for the gift of life itself, the greatest mystery in the universe. I once heard a scientist describe us as "the universe become self-aware".

I love that and I must try to stop every day and give thanks for that self-awareness.

Thank you so much for welcoming me back! I hope to get my Dog Park Blog up one of these days. Baby steps. I have found a beautiful dog park here.

Sometimes we forget to look up to the sky! I know exactly what you mean. When I do remember to look up I remember what is most important and it is such a relief. Beautiful post.

Faithful Bloggers said...

Kess And Her Mama said...

Yeap...we really do need to stop and take some time to be still and appreciate the beauty that God has given us. It's good to see that Happy finally got her walk!

"ME N MY MILLION DOLLAR" said...

I love sunset, those are beautiful photo, whatever it is sunset is always very very pretty.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Callie is definitely the better chaser. She zoomes around the backyard buzzing us until one of us chases her... We think she is practicing her herding skills for Saturday...
