The heavens praise your wonders, Lord, your faithfulness too. Psalm 89:5 

One of my favorite pastimes is gazing at the sky and discerning cloud shapes. A friend sent me this magnificent photo of the June Arizona sky. What do you see in the clouds? I see the descending doves of the Holy Spirit as a glorious reminder that God is with us. It reminds me of Les Colombes traveling art exhibit, by German artist Michael Pendry, installed at cathedrals around the world to bring hope. 

We can look to the Spirit sky, a faithful witness over all the earth, for hope in the promise that Jesus is with us in the Spirit –guiding, us, comforting us, growing our faith, and sending us to our neighbors in love. We all live under the same sky that showers us with peace, hope, and God’s love. Psalm 89 declares the heavens praise the wonders and the faithfulness of the Lord. The psalmist promises, “I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known. “  

Take a listen to this song based on Psalm 89: I Could Sing of Your Love Forever 

And next time you look at the clouds in the sky, take hope in knowing they declare the faithfulness of the Lord for you and for all people. To learn more and meditate on the Holy Spirit, check out our faith formation websitefor a week of  Praying with the Spirit beginning July 1st.
