It started out as an empty canvas stretching across the earth He covered it with blues to give us a sense of peace The whites and grays, they come and go as billowy puffs of clouds Then God decided to bless this world with some very special gifts Gifts for us to start and end each and every day with
He painted us some gorgeous pictures that he would call "sunrise" and "sunset" What we choose to do with these gifts is for each of us alone to decide We can choose to step outside and simply ignore the beauty up above But if we choose this route - the loss is ours - and the blessing we will lose Instead we need to choose the path that causes us to look up and see outside ourselves We need to take the time to allow ourselves to get caught up in the majesty of His Creation
The beauty spreads both far and wide, spreading across the horizon and reaching from end to end The sky is filled with pinks and purples, oranges and reds, just to name a few The colors are so intense that there is only one thing they can make you do Lift up your eyes and stare in awe at the wonder of it all Get lost in the knowledge that no man could ever recreate this Canvas in the Sky
Take time each day to stop and revel in the thought that this very special painting was made especially for you and me No human hands could ever replicate this awesome work of art Nor should we ever try Just take a moment each time you see it to say: "Thank You God for this Canvas in the Sky"
