A Gathering Storm

The other night the kids and I spent time at the county fairgrounds, cleaning out the barn with other 4H participants. On the way home, the most spectacular clouds began forming. I was impressed to go straight home and begin securing barn doors and gathering things that might blow away. Once we had battened down the hatches, I ran to get the camera. I have never seen such striking clouds.

"When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?" (Psalm 8:3-4)

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." (Psalm 19:1)

"By the word of the Lord were the heavens made." (Psalm 33:6)

"In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands." (Psalm 102:25)


  1. Lona, those are beautiful photographs! We've had some intense scary-sky photo ops here too in the last week. Wet sheep aren't nearly as fun as dry sheep :).

  2. Those photos are awesome! We just recently quit raising sheep on our farm - Due to our move to another state, we will not be a strictly beef cattle farm. I miss my sheep though. My husband was very active in 4H when he dairy farmed - he also bred show dairy cattle.

  3. What beautiful photographs and appropriate verses. Thank you. I had to chuckle about the Dutch Tupperware. I am 100% Dutch and proud to be frugal (but not all the time) and I like using yogurt containers instead of Tupperware, not just because they are free, but my old Tupperware gets smelly and the yogurt containers only "need" to be reused a few times.

  4. Wow -- such gorgeous clouds! I hope they brought you a little rain?

  5. No rain from those clouds. They were POSERS. It all blew apart and was over within 5 minutes of when I took the last photo.
