Look Up!

When feeling down or lost, here's something to do to feel better.

Look up.

Seeing the vastness of the sky, one cannot help but feel the presence of God.

Now that spring is here, the branches are budding.

It's inspiring to look up and see such exquisite handiwork.

In the photo below, a jet plane makes designs in the sky.

Birds soar across the horizon, not giving a glimpse to sorrows or worries.

As we've all heard so many times before, if the Creator takes care of the birds with such loving care, how much more does He do for humans? 

One glance up will reassure us that we are in good hands.

Happy Sunday! Your photos are beautiful.. now that we live in a more rural settling I find I do take the time to look up to the sky more often and enjoy the beautiful of the sunsets.. sun rises and just the formations of the clouds. God had created such beauty in our lives it is up to us to slow down and enjoy some of our surroundings.. have a great week ahead!

I particularly felt the hand of God in your last photo. Almost waiting to hear the voice of God come through the clouds!
Inspiring blog for a Sunday morning read.

I tell you, since I started blogging, I am looking up all the time. :) Unfortunately, we still have dust up there right now. :/ Hope you are having a beautiful day. Tammy

I SO agree, Susan! Makes me think of the quotes, “When the outlook isn’t good, try the uplook!" and “Faith makes: The uplook good, the outlook bright, the future glorious.”

Thanks for the well-illustrated reminder about the UPLOOK today!

I find God's presence when I pray no matter where or what time of day. Whenever I want to feel Him near I steal a glance and his work so dear! Thanks for this post Susan

This post lifted my heart and soul today, as it is so true, looking up does help me to feel God's presence. We live about 50 miles from the mountains, and on the way to church yesterday we could see the distant mountains with their caps of snow. This view never ceases to amaze me and bring my thoughts to God. Thannk you for sharing your beautiful photos!
