This is a response to the one-word prompt “Sky” by “The Daily Post.”
The Sky is such a limitedness joy to stare at in all its wonders. I love to just sit outside and just stare up into the sky both on a clear sunny day and at night, but also sometimes even on a cloudy day. Why do I enjoy this so much? Because there is just something sublime and majestic about it all. It also helps me to keep and put things back into perspective about life. And that is that life is more than just what goes on around me and is bigger than me.
The sky in all its vastness and beauty is very humbling for me, it keeps me in my propel role and place in the grand schemes of the universe. What I particularly love is looking at and taking in a very good sunset and sunrise. The contrast in colors and light is just so overwhelming, but also calming.
Whenever you find yourself just so busy with everyday stuff to do and are not enjoying life, go outside and look up into the sky and really look. It just puts you in a different mood, a thinking and reflective mood. It reminds you of just how small you are, but in a good way. When we take the time to enjoy the simplest of things in life, those things that we have around us all the time, but usually don’t give much thought to, we can get a whole new outlook on life.
To appreciate the sky in all its beauty and endlessness is to appreciate life in all its vastness and beauty. That is why I love to just look at the sky, because it fills me with such wonder for life and God’s creation. Yes, God created you and me but he also created everything in the universe, and to stare into the sky and really, I mean really take it all in, is to love that creation and be reminded of it constantly.
