The Heavens Declare

I'm sure you are like so many others, including myself. Seeing the Northern Lights is something you only dream about. Living in the USA most of my life, I always heard about them and how the lights seem to dance across the night sky, and somehow there is music that you hear as you gaze upon them. Since moving to Scotland in 2016, I have been chasing these lights, thankfully they come to me now, this is right outside my home.

Honestly looking across the sky you don't see this exact photo, the camera captures light and color that our human eye cannot see, yet there is a feeling of excitement and energy in the air. The sky looks different and you can feel the movement of the lights. When I stood outside in the freezing cold, I felt a bit energized and excited at what I might capture, and I wasn't disappointed.

The longer I stood outside the colder I got, my fingers were numb and I couldn't feel the camera capture button. I stood there with the stars twinkling above my head and the light shifting in the night sky and all I could think was, what a mighty God we serve. He is seen in every moment of life, and in these moments, the calmness, the quietness and the coldness, exemplifies the greatness of Almighty God.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork." Psalms 19:1
