Mountain in the Sky

Blue mountain in the sky
Perched among the clouds,
Your hazy hilltops stretch across the vast horizon.

This spring has had its share of dismal days and gloomy gray hues. Longing for sunshine and a bit stir crazy after a thunderstorm, my husband and I jumped at the first opportunity to take an evening drive. The rain had moved on, leaving a breathtaking image in the sky. We lifted our eyes and gazed upon a beautiful cloud formation looming overhead.

My mind wandered back to childhood days as I dreamed of what it would be like to walk among the clouds. Cars rushed by without a second glance, but we stopped to take in the view and watched the ever-changing canvas dissolve into the night sky. For a moment I felt like I caught a glimpse of a masterpiece as unique as the One who designed it.

“In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.” (Psalm 95:4 NIV)
