I am always amazed at how God speaks to me through the way He paints the sky. There is just something about a sunrise and sunset, big fluffy clouds, or the bright blue sky that always reminds me that God is right by my side.
Each morning I wake up and open my door to the most gorgeous orange and pink filled sky. And every night as we say the rosary outside, I see the sun setting as it paints bold colors across the sky. Each sunrise and sunset just as breathtaking and picturesque as the one before-each a sign of God's love and presence.
Many of you know that I have a thing for sunsets, and so I am sure you can imagine that my camera roll is quickly filling up with pictures trying to capture a mere glimpse of the sky's true beauty.
The first day I arrived in Juba, I was outside playing with the kids when I saw the sun begin to set and emit it's bright colors as the day came to an end. I immediately grabbed my camera and tried to capture the moment.
One of the kids came up to me and said, "Sister, you don't have the sun where you are from?" I was confused at the question, but then explained that we do have the sun. He said, "But you are taking a photo like you have never seen the sun before." I just laughed and then told him my love for sunsets. He laughed as well, but I am sure he thought I was crazy!
As the photos keep piling up on my camera, I thought it would be a great chance to share with you all a few pictures of the gorgeous African Skies during my first two months in South Sudan. Enjoy!
