When we first moved to Alberta from South Carolina over 25 years ago, I thought flat prairies and big, open skies were boring. Now I love them and even feel slightly claustrophobic when we travel back to the closed-in landscapes of the southeast.
Last week during our time away in the cabin, we observed Alberta skies in a variety of moods. Everything from bright, cloudless, sunny skies to fierce, stormy, thunderclouds rolled past. It was especially satisfying to sit on the broad porch in our comfortable Adirondack chairs to watch the ever-changing weather show.
When the thunderstorm passed by it reminded us of watching storms with our kids when they were little. Everyone would jump at the sound of thunder and Bud would tell the kids it was God talking. Psalm 29:3 says ‘The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders’ and Job 37:5 tells us “God thunders wondrously with his voice.” We sure love observing ‘God talking’ in a thunderstorm.
Hope you enjoy our Alberta skies!
