I'm happy to be linking up with Mary again, over at Little Red House, for her unique party. Each Thursday, she takes a single word and uses it as inspiration. Brilliant!
Today's word is sky. If you know me, even a little bit, you know I'm in love with all things skyward. Not only the sky itself, but every last thing in it—moon, stars, sun, clouds, planets—so today's party puts tingles in my hands and dancing in my feet. I can't wait to see what inspiration awaits from fellow-bloggers.
All of the photos here were taken by yours truly, and they are all right out of a Kodak camera, no editing. But, as you will see, the real artist is God.
Each photo carries a deep meaning for me and transports me back to the time and place, the where, the when, and the why. I hope these images inspire you to get out and explore God's great big skies.
