“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.”  Psalm 19:1-2 

Dear Heavenly Father, Every morning and evening I see your glory in the skies.  You are the master artist of the universe.  The colors and contrasts are breathtaking.  They remind me of your majesty and your creativity.  So many people are busy in their homes and businesses when your beautiful paintings appear in the heavens.  But still you paint them, again and again.  They show that you are the creative force behind everything in nature, including me.  What I see each day is only a microscopic portion of all you produce that day.  O Author of life, accept my puny praise for your powerful and masterful handiwork.  And accept my thanks that you have grace for sinners like me who take up space in your masterpiece.  Amen. 

God paints a new work every day and we have the privilege of living inside it.
