We’ve been chatting about thankfulness this month, and today’s focus is the biggest reason of all. I’m so thankful that God sent His only Son into this world to redeem all who believe in Him. Can I get an amen? Thank You, thank You, Jesus, for all You’ve done for me. And someday (maybe soon!) You’ll come again in the clouds and take us to live with You forever.
So it seemed fitting to share “sky” photos today! And the most dramatic ones I’ve taken lately are from an aurora borealis show we witnessed from our side yard on September 18th! I belong to a British Columbia aurora group on Facebook, and without them, I might not have headed outside at the right time to have a better look. Photos in the group from further north were absolutely breathtaking as many were able to capture dancing and swirling lights.
Ours were less dramatic, the flow of the aurora gentle and slow. I’ve seen them dancing wild at other times when we lived further north, but this is the best we’ve seen in years. So special to see the Creator’s hand showcasing this art form!

Here’s a tip I learned in September about photographing aurora: don’t wait until it looks dramatic. Start shooting before that, because the camera lens can pick up the red tones your eye can’t see in the low light. The reds were barely visible with the naked eye, so we just kept shooting photos with our phones and then looking at them and saying, “oh, so THAT’s what it really looks like!”
