Photos of G*d's glorious galaxy from January 2016 to now.


May we be blessed to enjoy G*d's world.

"You G*d are the Compassion, the Strength, the Beauty, the Victory, the Splendor, and the Foundation of everything in Heaven and on Earth."
 - 1 Chronicles 1:29

"Mah Rabu Maasecha HaShem Kulam Bechachmah Asita Malah HaAretz Kinyanecha." - Psalms 104:24

How great/many are Your deeds hashem, All of them You have made with wisdom 
–the earth is full of Your creations. 


''I will awake/urah the dawn...’' - King David (Shulchan Aruch) 
“Let man strengthen himself like a lion and arise in the early morn to render service to his Creator”; 
as David said, ‘I will awake the dawn’  Psalm 57.9."
“I will awake the morning!” (Psalms 57:9)

Sheyeha Hu Meorer HaShachar.
 הוא מעורר השחר  שיהא

G*d is not a stranger in my life from the moment I awake the dawn, 
and visit the early morning sunrise. 

Friends, It is always a surprise in color, form, line, radiance and expansiveness to see what morning light brings, 
as I wait in the dark in anticipation for the sun to rise. 
Sunset I may have a little idea of possibility, depending on clouds. 
Sunrise has me in absolute suspense, wonder and awe.

Early each morning before dawn, joyously I again begin my day in wonder, like a child, at the edge of the cliff, closest to the horizon and the rising sun. For an hour today, from 5:30am, with camera in my hands, I am blown over again and again by the powerful gusts of wind cleaning the sky and distant mountains, and I smile in the radiance of G*d’s colorful surprises.
May your day be bright.
Love and blesSings,

As I wait quietly in devotion for SUNRISE:
Faith, Anticipation, Patience, Meditation, Surprise, Awe, Amazement, Exhilaration, Glee, Joy,
 Fulfillment, Wonderment, At OneMent, Peace, Stillness, Silence, Suspense, Connection, Prayer,
 and G*d LOOK LIKE THIS.

I was so enthralled with morning while waiting for the sun to rise that I felt I would break out of my skin.  Mamash/Truly. 
My body couldn’t contain my pure joy, delight in the Beloved’s painting of the sky; 
It was beyond the beyond. The Mystery, and my astonishment, glee and wonder. 
Even twilight's blue was insane in its hue. 


When blue, orange or red, they can immediately follow each other within seconds.

The radiance, colors and patterns last for seconds, then change, and change... in the quiet I await them. - Joy


"The Heavens speak of G*d's Glory, and the skies tell of The Holy One's handiwork."  Psalm 19:2



“O G*d, You are my G*d; at early dawn will I seek You. My soul thirsts for You; 


my flesh longs for You, in a dry and weary land without water."   Psalm 63:2

Perek Shira ~ The Clouds of Glory are saying: 
"Also G*d burdens the thick cloud with an overflow; the cloud scatters its light."  Psalms Job 37:11

Perek Shira ~ The Thick Clouds are saying: 
G*d made darkness His secret place; His pavilion around Him was dark with waters and thick clouds of the skies."  Psalms 18:12
Perek Shira ~ The Rains are saying: 
You, G*d, poured a generous rain to strengthen Your heritage when it languished.”  Psalms 68:10


RAINBOWS
A rainbow is a reminder of the covenant that G*d made with Noah, his descendants, and all living creatures. 
Seeing a rainbow in the sky, we recite the following blesSing:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֶלוֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם זוֹכֵר הַבְּרִית וְנֶאֱמָן בִּבְרִיתוֹ וְקַיָם בְּמַאֲמָרוֹ

Hebrew transliteration of BlesSing for a rainbow:
Barukh Ata Ad-nai, Elokeynu Melekh Ha'Olam
zo'khair ha'brit, v'ne'eman biv'rito v'kayam b'ma'amaro.  
 'Praised are you, G*d, ruler of the world, who remembers the covenant, 
is faithful to the covenant and keeps promises.' 
or
'Holy One of BlesSings, Your Presence fills creation,
You remember Your covenant with all that You created.'

Awe of G*D is the beginning of wisdom.”  (respect of G*d’s Truth) - Psalm 111:10

"Well something's lost, but something's gained In living every day
I've looked at clouds from both sides now ..."  Joni Mitchell  1967
