“He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; He suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the water in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.  He covers the face of the full moon spreading His clouds over it.  The pillars of the Heavens quake against his rebuke.  By His power He churned up the sea…by His breath the skies become fair…and these are but the outer fringes of His works; how faint the whisper we hear of Him!” Job 26:7-9 11-14

There are times at sunrise and sunset when I feel God is speaking to us.  I don’t typically read the book of Job…in fact I avoid it.  I am afraid to know the level of faith building circumstances that he endured. However this verse felt fitting for this image with it’s reference to Northern Skies and Whispers of God.  If a sky like this is a whisper what then will a conversation be like – and if He creates something this magnificent in a fleeting sunset here on earth, then how much more glorious is His kingdom?
