Sunset...

The other evening as I was out working in the yard, I noticed that it had become very quiet, almost too quiet. The air just a whisper of a breeze, wafting the aroma of gardenias and redwoods around me. Gently, ever so gently, a thought drifted in to look up from the task at hand,
 




and behold a glorious sunset...

      It was, and I'm glad too.
      God's art work often copied, never matched.

    1. Granny Sue,
      You are so right, which is a shame.
      My kids, when small, thought I was a bit touched, as we could be in the car or a horseback and I would halt to gaze in wonder at some piece of God's handiwork.

  6. I guess everyone, like you, stopped what they were doing and looked up.

      I hope so, the more that realized the beauty of the moment the better.

  8. Sunsets are God's masterpieces. Living in the great Southwest, the skies are always open to that beauty.

    1. Euripides,

      We don't often get such sunsets here, so it behooves us to enjoy them when we do.
