Praise of the Sky

Psalm 19:1-2 NIV
“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 display knowledge.”

Golden rays of joy dance with pink skirted ladies along a tangerine river. Suddenly an angel fire of crimson leaps into the scene as a lavender dress slips in to join the ball. They dance for the joy of Jesus, for the glory of God. Dancing partners shift and pause to watch the glorious becoming as each one in turn transforms from one hue to another. Darkness is stealing in but the dancers continue on. Slowly each one tiptoes off the stage and meanders home.

After a short interlude new performers begin to tune up their instruments and prepare for the night-time display. The black curtain darkens the stage and one by one, splashes of shimmering light sing out a song of praise. The beacons dance into formation joining arms and singing softly of The Way.

A silver crescent hangs in the center of the sparkling jewels – a necklace for the bride of heaven. In the silence of the dark, shouts of praise echo from the sky. The music of truth and hope is never-ending.

The sky lightens and the cloak of darkness falls away. Bright golden rays pierce the sky with the declaration of newness and restoration. And His praise goes on.
