Good Morning, God!
Yesterday was a bumper day for photos! I was at the Ala Moana Shopping Center taking photos in Neiman Marcus and the Apple Store. Then in the evening my brother sent me a great photo of four baby finches with their mouths WIDE open. Their 10th finch nest of the season!
But this is the one I wanted to share — unusual clouds over Hawaii Kai. Actually, I saw them as I got off the freeway but I didn’t hit a red light until Hawaii Kai.
I love clouds, God, and we have such beautiful clouds in Hawaii. Big white, puffy ones that rise up over the mountains — cumulus clouds — are what I usually see. But every once in a while we get something unusual. A Treat. I suppose, God, that when I say I love clouds I really mean I love the Sky and the Clouds.
Because I really don’t like it when I cannot see the sky. I’m thinking of the low grey clouds that cover the sky completely — the June Gloom of Coastal California. Or the low thick dark clouds of the Northwest that come and sit on top of everything.
So, then, it isn’t just the clouds — it is the clouds in the context of the sky — that I love. Hmmm. I suppose, God, that there is a lot of that type of confusion in my mind. I’m thinking now of ice cream bars which are a special “comfort” food for me. It isn’t really because of the vanilla ice cream and the chocolate coating. It is more that they bring back memories of my childhood visiting my grandparents and waiting for the ice cream truck.
So, maybe it’s the context that determines the Value? Thank You, God for BEING OUR CONTEXT!
