On the inside, I was a little girl in pigtails, clapping my hands and squealing with delight, jaw dropped in rapt fascination.
In reality, I'm quite certain I released an audible gasp, flew down the stairs, and as I grabbed my camera and flung open our front door, directed my children to LOOK OUT THE FRONT WINDOW!
The sky was on fire with unextinguishable flame.
In a blaze of glory, God spoke ~
His handiwork, incomparable.
His voice, inspiring.
His beauty, stunning.
His reach, soul-touching.
His gift, spirit-lifting.
My heart, captivated by a breath-taking sunrise, responds in worship; it's involuntary and spontaneous and it gives me insight to the Psalmist's declaration ~
Sing about the glory of his name!
Tell the world how glorious he is.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
Your enemies cringe before your mighty power.
Everything on earth will worship you;
they will sing your praises,
shouting your name in glorious songs.”
Psalm 66:1-4, NLT
Let it be.
