The Heavens Declare . . .

Spent last weekend at one of my favorite spots on earth--at my sister's family cabin on Mooselookmeguntic Lake in northwestern Maine.  They've owned it since the early 80s and I've been lucky enough to enough many happy visits there over the years.  The cabin's deck faces west over the lake, treating us to hundreds of amazing sunsets, none of them the same.  Take the two we enjoyed this weekend.  Frist, Friday night's from two perspectives (the first two at the end of the lake, the next six from the cabin's deck):

Then check out the sunset on Saturday night.  For the longest time, there was almost no other color in the sky besides the gold of the sun.  Then, suddenly, the molten gold spread across the sky:

Psalm 19 1-2 God’s glory is on tour in the skies,
    God-craft on exhibit across the horizon.
Madame Day holds classes every morning,
    Professor Night lectures each evening.
3-4 Their words aren’t heard,
    their voices aren’t recorded,
But their silence fills the earth:
    unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.
4-5 God makes a huge dome
    for the sun—a superdome!
The morning sun’s a new husband
    leaping from his honeymoon bed,
The daybreaking sun an athlete
    racing to the tape.
That’s how God’s Word vaults across the skies
    from sunrise to sunset,
Melting ice, scorching deserts,
    warming hearts to faith.

~The Message Bible
