Winter Sky



It is so seldom that I take a picture of the sky that looks right...but this was what it looked like a couple of evenings ago when the present cold/wet front blew in.

This is a terrific photograph. In fact, it's paintable.

Thanks, Sharon.

When I was a kid, whenever I saw a dramatic sky like this, it always made me think that Jesus might be coming at any moment, riding on a horse down through the clouds.

As wierd as that may sound (and it does, I know), I have talked to other people over the years who said that they used to think the same thing when they were kids.

When my son was about 6 years old, after examining a windswept sun-flecked Texas sky, roiling and churning with massive cumulous formations, he asked me if I thought Jesus was coming.

The question came out of the blue (so to speak) and surprised me, as we had not been discussing anything remotely related to that.

I told him I thought He was. Maybe not today, but soon.
