Clouds of Glory!

Last evening I was outside watering and my eyes traveled 
toward the light above me. The billowing clouds were radiant
with reflected light from the sun. The golden colors shimmered
and changed over the next 90 minutes. I have never seen a 
sunset that continued to flow in beauty for this long. The last
half hour found me sitting and drinking in God’s glory. The huge
cloud above was laced with gold, but the center of the cloud was
translucent in color. How can I describe it? I could also see light 
from the hidden sun streaming up and away across the sky above
the cloud. Lightning flashed inside of the cloud and I could not help but
think of the soon return of our Lord.
“Behold, he is coming in the clouds...” (Revelation 1:7)
“...then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds 
with great glory.” (Mark 13:26)
“Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together
with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air...”
(I Thessalonians 4:17)
By the way, as I was watching the sky I suddenly realized that I
was being watched. A Hummingbird was poised just in front of
my face, and, for a few seconds I looked right into her tiny face.
Last evening was quite a show! And, it was free. I had the sense
that my Papa God was showing off just for me! He does that, you

Yea, Jane!!!
I have figured out how to post a comment, praise God!!!

This posting of last eveing's show for you, sounds terrific. I was inside our Aikido building when I noticed there was an orangish cloud, but I did not have the opportunity to go outside to gaze. I am always smitten by the skies that God colors so beautifully!
I am so glad that you were the one that God showed off for and that you were "noticing"!

Oh, and the little hummingbird... how special!!!

And I agree with your scriptures and point of view that Jesus is going to take us up with Him very soon!! I'm so-o-o ready! For a while I was wanting to go, in order to get out of my trials. I since have repented; I want to see my Saviour!

Lots of love to you, my friend!

Thanks, friend. I think you are one of the few who have figured this out!

Hey, my friend, I finally made it to your wonderful depository of thoughts and exhortations. I totally missed the sunset last night, but your description makes it live again. Thank you! Love and blessings to you.
