The Vault of Heaven

The news outlets predict even more snow is on its way. We see that our animal friends take the weather with more ease than we often do. Perhaps they have a deep awareness of the life-giving connection between falling snow, abundant water in springtime ponds and lakes, and the flourishing of all things. Fittingly, today we read in the Liturgy of the Hours for Midafternoon:

I have built my upper chamber,

and established my vault over the earth;

I summon the waters of the sea

and pour them out on the surface of the earth,

I, the Lord by name.

The sky proclaims God’s glory.

The vault of heaven, the hand of him who made it.

~ Amos 9:6
