Psalm 8:1 Lord, our Lord how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.
It had been a windy day, the seas whipped up by a strong Westerly breeze, blowing clouds across the sky, rustling through the reeds and ferns that make up much of the vegetation around us. Blue sky appeared during the afternoon and we were finally treated to another wonderful sunset over Jura, accompanied by increasing stillness as the wind died away. An atmosphere of peace and tranquility, though the agitation of the waves continued, as though unconvinced that the wind wasn’t still there, waiting to return and stir them up again. As the sun dipped over the Paps of Jura, the sky increasingly assumed wonderful hues of yellow, orange, red, merging from one colour to another, seamlessly changing to a light blue above me. A single star appeared to the South West, winking away, increasing the beauty of the scene. I stood there for a few moments, looking up at the heavens, experiencing the wonder that God lives above the Heavens, looking down at His creation. And showing us a glimpse of His glory. Wow!
