Speaking Sky

Psalms 19: 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.

There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.  Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. 

In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion,, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.  It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.

My daughter took these pictures on her Memorial Day trip to the Washington coast. (You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.)  Wow…there is nothing like a sunset over the ocean!  These are real pictures, not enhanced with technology. They need nothing else added, the sky is breathtaking and speaking in this moment of time.     The heavens do speak, don’t they?  Linking this post with Spiritual Sunday.

Yesterday we went on a day trip to the ocean to visit my daughter and her family who are having a short vacation on the beach.  I came across this darling little village community, Seabrook, on the Washington coast.   As we drove by, I noticed it, and exclaimed to my husband  to wait and  turn around!  Being the nice guy he is, he didn’t mind at all.  I instantly fell in love with this community. I took a few pictures thinking you would like to see this charming planned village by the sea.  I love the houses built around porches, and designed like old homes.

I fell in love with this arbor and we took pictures of it.  Mine has seen better days and has beaten by the wind, so I hope to copy the design of this one and have my husband build one that is similar.

I loved, loved, this view!  The main village is not on the ocean, but a short walk down the hill. This is the view from the neighborhood;  you can see why the houses are built high up.  And they are just so charming built that way as well.

   I went online yesterday and looked at the rates to rent a little house here. Not too bad at all!  I hope to come again and rent a house and just relax enjoying the ocean and the community.  The clouds were dark, the wind was high, but a day at the ocean enjoying family was the best.
