Another Look At The Sky…

Published: 21 March 2011


Do you remember when you were young, you would look to the sky making shapes out of clouds and naming birds as they fly by. As time has gone by, you have grown older, taller, wiser, and you are probably focused on more important matters of your life like school or work or family. As important as our priorities are, we may have forgotten one very important thing; to take another look at the sky…  To be thankful to the Lord our God who created us and the never disappointing Sky that has given us so much joy and beauty for every moment of our lives; the same sky that holds our secrets, sorrows, joy, past and future. May I draw your attention to E. E. Cummings (1894 – 1962) a U.S. poet and painter who wrote:

“i thank You God for this most amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes…”

Let us take a moment to be grateful for the things that may seem simple yet very complex, like laughter and peace,  or hope for the future, an education, a job, or perhaps family and friends or the sky…
