clarifying clouds

Clouds seem to have many personalities...from wispy ones that waft along at high altitudes that seem to herald clear air to heavy overcast layers filled with moisture that threaten to block the sun's light entirely.  On the West Coast we experienced the Sea Fog caused by the dramatic temperature difference between water and land.  It partially obscured the beauty of the shoreline until the sun's heat burned it off.  But sometimes clouds are majestic and are framed by the sun in such a way that Heaven, itself, is foreshadowed.  Yesterday, on the way home from an errand, I just had to stop and take a picture (attached) of these kinds of clouds.  Jesus ascended to Heaven in a cloud and will one day return the same way, scripture says.  The Heaven's that are anticipated in the clouds will one day bring Heaven's fulfillment when the Son returns for His church.  Keep your eyes on the skies!

Matthew 17:But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him."

Mark 13:26 Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with great power and glory.
