I’ve been away visiting my mother in another state. It’s good to be home again. As I flew homeward, I was lucky to get a window seat. Evening was approaching as we took off, and I watched a really beautiful sunset from my vantage point of 32,000 feet in the air. Just below there was a thick layer of fuzzy-looking clouds, forming a “floor” for the skyworld beneath us. Sunrays turned it a deep golden color . The sky was clear above, and I think you could see for hundreds of miles. There were a lot of wispy clouds above this layer, and they began to light up in reds and oranges. The sun was a big red ball.
Most beautiful of all: some of the upper layer clouds were actually raining. Although the drops never reached the actual ground far below–they dissipated into and were absorbed by the golden layer of cloud cover. What they DID do was create a multitude of rainbows above the clouds, shining up there among the deeper sunset colors all around. It was spectacularly beautiful. I have never seen anything like it. Words cannot do it justice.
Oh, how I wish I had brought my camera!
What a world of beauty our God has given us.
