A Great Sunset

I have been waiting for a great Sunset to appear for a month.  We have had plenty of beautiful Sunrises, but Mother Nature would blow all the evening clouds away and refuse to let the Sunset shine in all its glory.  Last night the sun lit up the clouds in every direction and surrounded my yard with glorious beauty and color.  Such a thrill.

I really can’t give the glory of such beauty to Mother Nature – we all know God created the beauty of this world.

Early Morning

I am usually still up when my husband retires for the night.  I am up in the early morning for 2 or 3 hours before my husband arises.  Insomnia is a big problem for me. but seeing the sunrise when it appears is the best part of the day.  The sunrise this morning after 5 inches of rain yesterday – was not as colorful as usual, but I can still see the beauty of God’s morning display in the sky.

Anything in nature is a thrill for me.  We all have to agree that God created a beautiful world for us to enjoy.  The joy in a sunrise is missed by a lot of people in the world, because they fail to pause and take in the beauty that surrounds them.  I give a big sigh as I photograph each morning’s sunrise and realize what others have missed.  I always show the sunrise to my husband who would miss it – if I did not show him what I have captured in my camera lens each early morning.

James 3: 17-18  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
