Being born in the province where trees, mountains, and beaches are all for free and near to home is such a wonderful blessing that I ever had. Now that I’m in the metro, far from the greenery and beaches, there is one best thing here on earth that is always available for me to see and admire – the clouds!
I had my very first airplane ride when I was only 2 years old and had many flights after that, yet no one can take the awesome feeling when I see those clouds outside the plane’s window. I just love it!
I love clouds. Clouds? It is always love. (Need I say more? I already said this line thrice.) Every day, I never failed to appreciate it and thank God for it. Sometimes when I forget to pray in the morning then I would see the clouds, a prayer immediately comes in. Why? Because as I am in awe of the cloud’s greatness, it will always points me back to the greatness of its Creator – God.
Ever heard of the Sea of Cloud Phenomenon? I did. And I witnessed it myself! With all courage and strength together with my beloved Architects, we hiked Mt. Pulag to see the clouds and be in awe of its indescribable nature.
When the clouds are simply lovable and irresistible. I simply ran out of words to write, so let these pictures captivate you and fall in love with the clouds and Mt. Pulag.
Before the hike, around 7:00 am.
Change outfits and GO for the clouds!
Upon reaching the camp site!
Below are the views caught on the lenses of cameras, but those views are first caught on the lenses of my eyes and stored in my memories. The clouds beyond words:
Because God blessed us with a rainbow too!
I believe every child dreams of being able to fly. Personally, I still want to become a bird even until now. Why? For they are always up there in the skies and in the clouds. I say, if I am a bird I don’t have to look up to the clouds instead I can be with it anytime I want. I was just dreaming and hoping to jump from cloud to cloud when suddenly…
God answered my prayers!
The Bible shows me one great message that affirms me that someday I can be on the clouds. So my dream will be in reality SOON.
We who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. – 1 Thessalonians 4:17
When will that be? I don’t know. No one knows except God. And so, I’ll wait on that day that I’ll be with Him in the clouds. That time I don’t have to hike or exert much effort for I know He will lift me up with Him.
Why I still look up in the clouds every morning and even in the afternoon? For I am waiting for His return, I am waiting for my Savior in the clouds.
He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him.. -Revelation 1:7
So, I’ll be patiently waiting until my next cloud 9 experience, not just with the best Architects, but the Master Architect and Creator of the world.
