From the Lovely Sky to the Altogether Lovely One




The other night, I took this photo from the back door.



I love sunsets with lots of cloud.

The sea was calm, there was little wind, and there was almost no sound when I was out taking these photos.



This evening, I took a wander down to the machair, not only to admire the setting sun, but to savour the roar of the Atlantic.



The sound is simply music to my ears.



The lovely sheep are oblivious to all the beauty around them, and it reminded me



of how often I read of the Saviour in the past, and heard of Him, but to me there was 'no beauty in Him that I would desire Him'.

Truly, we are, by nature, like sheep that have gone astray. 



The colours in the sky, the deep music of the sea - nature's beauty which calls to us to look, not at it, but to the Altogether Lovely One who created it all.

"Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all ye ends of the earth, for I am God and there is none else." Isaiah 45:22

    1. There is something in God's amazing creation that makes it impossible not to be drawn to HIM when admiring it, isn't there, Davene ... Ax

  3. Thank you for reminding us of the beauty of God's world. We take so much for granted.

  6. Breathtakingly gorgeous! Isn't the Lord kind to share such awesome beauty with us? And it's strange that so many see His handiwork and refuse to acknowledge that He even created it!
