The Heavens Declare the Glory of God!

Clouds on Romanian Alps

A lover of clouds since my early childhood, I am in total awe of the clouds that God puts on display here…in the early morning, in the evening as the sun is setting, when the weather changes.  (I wonder if God has an angel in charge of cloud design and purpose? Or does God save that for personal enjoyment?)


The day the snows began, the clouds lined up over the Sugash Mountains.


Looking to the West, I saw a gigantic cloud rolling over the mountain tops like a tidal wave!


Spreading out, the clouds began to scatter light snow all around us.


Swelling over the Sugash Mountains to the West, clouds brought snow for several days. (My red tile roof is in the right hand corner, and Gusti's roof beginning two lots lower down the mountain from my home.)


The falling snow made the ancient fortress and church across the valley East of my house look like an artist's work on canvas.

So, now you have a taste of the flavor of early snow in Sfantu Gheorghe, Romania, nestled in the huge crescent shaped valley of the Carpathian Mountains deep in Transylvania.  God does magnificent things for our enjoyment and good.








































“The heavens declare the glory of God;  the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.

There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.”  Psalm 19: 1-3

— Anne

    Very nice photos, Anne. Beautiful countryside there. It reminds me a bit of our Maryland mountains, hills, grass, trees, and snows … except of course with a Romanian style. I love the second photo with the “village” type view and the ancient fortress and church … lots of history there I imagine.

    We enjoy God’s beauty in Maryland all around us, too. Right now, the Maryland trees are changing colors to the bright red, bright yellow, rust, crimson, brown, dark green, golden, and tan colors very typical of Autumn in Maryland. Fog comes up over the river each morning covering the trees and river from our view, and then the fog dissipates around noon everyday. The “purple mountains majesty” is a glorious sight this time of year over the Appalachian Mountains. And yes, the mountains actually look purple from a distance. Days are getting longer. Temps are getting cooler. I love Autumn in Maryland.

    Thank you for sharing your photos and your life in Romania. May God bless you all there.
