The sights are not always picture-perfect.  Our region has been hit hard recently with high temperatures and powerful storms.  Thunder and lightning.  Power outages.  Flooding.  Downed trees.  Debris everywhere!  The storms have almost become a daily ritual.  But on a sunny day before the start of summer’s storms, my brother called for me to see if I thought the scene above the house was worthy of a picture.  It was!

Looking toward the sky, I saw a picture-perfect sight.  Beautiful white, puffy clouds against a blue sky were framed by tree limbs from the tall, towering trees.  It was breathtaking!  For a few moments, I just stood there and marveled at nature’s quiet beauty.  As I focused the camera, the tree limbs seemed to automatically encircle the clouds as if to serve as a frame around them.  The amazing moment just had to be captured with a camera, though it will forever be etched in my mind.  How majestic is the work of our Creator!
