In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light… Genesis 1:1-3
How about that catchy title today? You might have thought that you had stumbled onto a children’s story blog. Actually, maybe you have!
On my walk this morning, I was caught by the gorgeous blue colors of the sky. There was a deep blue, then gradients of color to almost pale blue. I kept looking up, ignoring my steps in front of me. Thankfully, I didn’t stumble.
The sky appears to be blue, I understand, because of the way light is scattered in the atmosphere. The blue, shorter waves of light remain visible while the longer rays of the reds, yellows and oranges pass through.
I think we can take for granted something as simple as the glory of our blue sky. We lose our child-like sense of awe and wonder as we grow older, and perhaps we become more cynical. So, the word today for good mental health is- appreciate the simple things all around us that we might take for granted.
Isn’t great that the sky is blue?
Prayer: Thank you Lord for the simple things that give color to our world and reflect your glory, Amen.
