One display of God's magnificent glory in our backyard

Last Wednesday, we had an incredible storm blow through Nebraska...

"Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds,

the thunderings of his pavilion?

Behold, he scatters his lightning about him

and covers the roots of the sea.

For by these he judges peoples;

he gives food in abundance.

He covers his hands with the lightning

and commands it to strike the mark.

Its crashing declares his presence;

the cattle also declare that he rises."

-Job 36:29-33

The heavens declare the Glory of God and the firmament shows HIS handiwork
~the sky truly turned golden on Thursday night after the storm died down a bit

It cast a tremendous and mystical light on everything...
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.

The Lord is God,

and he has made his light to shine upon us.

I love how the raindrops on our windows could turn everything into an impressionist painting...
"Has the rain a father or who has begotten the drops of dew?"-Job 38:28

And God said,“This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”-Genesis 8

Mightier than the thunders of many waters,

mightier than the waves of the sea,

the Lord on high is mighty! -Psalm 93:4

  1. LOVE these pictures. I don't think you mentioned that the storm was around twilight, which made the light even more unusual. Love it! Great photography.
