Stranger than fiction

Some things that show up in reality are simply stranger than fiction. I spotted this cloud last night at sunset just sort of hanging out all on it own. It remindes me of a Jellyfish. I turned 45 degrees to the South and the rest  of the sky looked like .
God's painted sky has followed me back from Mexico. I take this as a simple reminder that God's creativity is all around us, even in a cloud formation that appears unnatural. Maybe that is just his way of getting my attention.

How is God getting your attention today?

  1. CRAZY. God got my attention today when Carrie was telling me how God provided a gift for our daughter. She was talking about how He loves her, & cares about what she likes even though it isn't necessarily spiritual or part of His eternal plan. What struck me was that God loving us IS His eternal plan, & that plan is manifest in the cosmic sweep of all things as well as in His care for the sparrow. WOW.

  2. You see a jellyfish. I see an island in the middle of a lake :-)
    Today God got my attention while I was grabbing lunch. I was parked in front of a wall covered with vines. The leaves were changing, and each leaf looked gloriously intricate with its' own speckled, vibrant patterns. I was struck by the beautiful changes each season brings and God's abiding love for us.

  3. Teague, Valerie,

    Thank you for sharing. I love to hear how God is showing up in unique ways.

  4. I see a flying saucer! We had clouds just like this a while ago. So beautiful. God reveals himself when I'm still enough to perceive Him. We have a wood burning stove now and that helps slow me down a bit. Trying to do that more and more. Breathing in the smell, listening to the sounds, seeing my goaty-girls and feeling the chill of the goat barn helps me see God.

  5. Debbie, I like the thought of slowing down and breathing in the smell of a crackling fire.
