What Do You See?

Driving home from Missouri the other evening, we watched an interesting formation of clouds. As their intensity increased, so did my determination to snap a photo. I posted it on my Facebook page and it was interesting to see what it looked like “in another’s eyes”. Several of the Okies, myself included, thought of tornadoes, no doubt. One saw a heart. My sister was reminded of flower petals.

I started thinking about how we view others at a glance. Or even how we sum up a person that we know. Our opinion doesn’t make them who they are. But it can either help or hinder their pathway.

I want to choose to be on the help side.  A situation that needs attention can be handled in an edifying manner.

My hope is to be the encourager.  I want to see hearts and flower petals. ♥

    Clouds and waves fascinating me. That cloud picture is incredible! The logical thing that they look like is tornadoes. (And I’m not even from the Midwest.) I’m not sure what to say beyond the tornadoes. There’s a stacking quality to them — like haphazard stacks of plates that may fall at any moment.

    • They fascinate me as well. Those little cold fronts bring amazing views sometimes. Tornadoes are beautiful…if they didn’t have to be so devastating…. “like haphazard stacks of plates that may fall at any moment” ~ exactly!

    Amazing formation…Nature is simply marvelous!

  3. I see two large-shoulderd guys, facing each other, wearing those suit-of-armor type helmets with the “plume” thing on top.

    I can kind of see a face in it. Although tornadoes definitely stand out too.

    Is it bad that I see tornadoes, too? I’m self-admittedly full of doom and gloom, but I’m also the gal you’d want around in the face of a disaster. I’ve got so many worst-case scenarios in my mental filing cabinet, Homeland Security should hire me. I like your kind, though.

    This is a fascinating formation and it would be quite a study as to the winds above that formed these… i DO LOVE THE PHOTO THOUGH, AND ALTHOUGH i ONLY SEE FASCINATING CLOUDS, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT DEVELOPED AFTER THAT PHOTO… (What happened here, where did the caps come from… sorry don’t know how to change them back) now you know I type looking at my keyboard and not my screen… lol

  7. I love this analogy, Paula, between clouds-at-a-glance and people.

  8. Firstly, I see nature’s beauty at work… secondly, a heart shape. Stunning shot!

    Gossip foments indecision. (The image on the left whispers to the other, which gave him two different ideas, thus indecision.)

    That picture is amazing – I’ve been staring at it for about ten minutes…

    They are called lenticular clouds … usually appearing in the vicinity of mountains. Sometimes, but not often, they pile up each other to form what you saw.

    WOW!, what unusual clouds, thanks for sharing.

  15. You do edify and encourage! the cloud formation reminds my of a spinning bike wheel and then I immediately remembered attaching cards to the spokes with clothespins!

    I see angel wings. But the moon photo is my favorite. Thanks for always reminding us to be kind.

  17. shreejacob says:

    Love the cloud picture! and thanks for the moon too!
    I saw a heart as well.

  18. Good thoughts, Delores ♥

    A really amazing cloud formation. They look like flying saucers, or maybe flying dinner plates. 🙂 Your moon pic is incredibly beautiful.
