I flew home from my short trip last night and as we were entering Oklahoma, the captain announced that rather than head straight to Tulsa, he had to overshoot and go to Arkansas, then turn around. The reason was a thunderstorm that needed to be avoided. I thoroughly appreciated this for two reasons. One, I really don’t ever want to fly through a thunderstorm. Ever. Call me unadventurous and close-minded, but it just isn’t on my bucket list.
Two, when we turned around and headed back to Tulsa, I got to see this.
Wow wow wow.
My fellow passengers had the same reaction, I think, judging from the number of phones/cameras that were pointing toward the windows. My little iPhone photos don’t do it justice. It truly was an awe-inspiring sight.
To paraphrase the Good Book, the heavens were totally declaring the glory of God!
