the day before yesterday, while on the road with PP, we were blessed to be able to see 3 types of clouds in the sky!~

"Cumulus Clouds: The word cumulus comes from the Latin word for a heap or a pile. Cumulus clouds are puffy in appearance. They look like large cotton balls..."

"Stratus Clouds: The word stratus comes from the Latin word that means "to spread out." Stratus clouds are horizontal, layered clouds that stretch out across the sky like a blanket. Sometimes a layer of warm, moist air passes over a layer of cool air. Stratus clouds often form at the boundary where these layers meet. "

"Cirrus clouds... are a third general type of cloud. The word cirrus comes from the Latin word for a tuft or curl of hair. Cirrus clouds are very wispy and feathery looking. "

"Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds." Psalm 68:34

As we look at the clouds and His creation, we are reminded of the Creator and His word proclaims that "his strength is in the clouds"! even when we think that they are but water vapour, yet God's power is there.

Are we to doubt how God's strength can be found in our lives? THe one who bestows his strength in the clouds is ale to give you more!

By faith we walk-tog! :)

Oh yes and they are wonderful pictures, very hard to take while driving tho, hehe:)
