"And the heavens declare the glory of God."

On Monday night,
just before the fireworks began,
God put on display in the heavens
His own work of art.

It had rained earlier,
and these were some leftover clouds.
The sun was setting,
giving off the last of its relentless heat,
igniting the clouds,
painting a picture in the sky,
letting us know that,
 it is He who is the Master of this earth.

Most amazing of all,
I see a tiny cross,
a little off,
but very

"I am the way, the truth, and the life,
No one comes to the Father except through Me."
John 14:3

The cross of Christ Jesus is the way to God,
the way to life eternal,
to all that He has prepared for us who believe.
In Christ there is peace with God
and joys forever.

The cross is a reminder.
A blatant message of hope,
A ray of sunshine lighting up the world.
Christ died there,
and when He died 
He paid the price for our sins
and reconciled us to a right relationship with God.
