the dust beneath his feet

"Isn't it beautiful?" Todd looked up at the awakening sky. He pointed to a trail of puffy white clouds stomping across the seamless blue. "The clouds are the dust beneath His feet."
Christy smiled at Todd's poetic flair. He looked like a monk with the hood covering his head. "Did you just make that up?"
"No," Todd confessed. "An old testament prophet did. Nahum, to be exact. I always think of that verse when I see clouds that look like God just went for a morning stroll across the face of the earth."

That was another passage from the Christy Miller series.
Doesn't it sound beautiful? The Dust Beneath His Feet. If you want to find it in your Bible, it's Nahum 1:3
