Wow. I’ve seen skywriting before and paid little attention, but for some reason, all I could think as I saw this develop in the South Florida skies last Friday morning is WOW. And then I thought some more… What perseverance it must have taken to acquire the skills necessary to make this creation! This is truly an example of someone using their time, money and talents to serve God, and to make the world a better place. Perhaps there was a time when the skywriter looked up to the heavens for guidance. Perhaps this is meant to help us remember where to look for help when we are lost. It is so easy to get caught up in the everyday activities of life and lose sight of the big picture.
No sooner had the last letter been drawn than the first ones really began to fade away back into the blue sky. While this beautiful masterpiece can’t be preserved like artwork on a ceiling, judging by how beautifully it was done, this wasn’t the first time it appeared and it hopefully won’t be the last. While we can’t all do skywriting, we can all do Something. Whatever we are able to do, no matter how big or how small, can make a difference. Sometimes all we have to do is look up for guidance and direction.
I’ll be looking upwards more from now on, looking for your artwork and imagining what contributions I can make. Thanks, skywriter, for this important reminder and inspiration. God bless you.
