Clouds are what make us Earth–a planet unto ourselves.
As a human being, there are times that my mind needs to soar to include the entire cosmos. Even though I’m incapable of comprehending eternity, every once in a while it is a great mental and spiritual exercise to at least try.
But most of the time I need the clouds.
I need a cloud cover to remind me that I’m living with other human beings on a planet where it’s necessary for us to get along, take care of our reserves and develop kindness as the law of the land.
Do clouds hold my warmth?
Do clouds hold in my mortality?
Do clouds give me an atmosphere?
A reminder that darkened skies bring moisture for things to grow.
We are a moody sort of creature, who in one moment complains about the drought and the next, curses the rain.
For that reason, we must all be grateful that the weather is out of our hands and under the meticulous attention of Mother Nature. She may frighten us with sharp turns and stormy conditions, but when the clouds clear and we’re able to see the heavens again, we are reassured that nothing can separate us from the love of our Creator.
