A Sunset Walk...


 It was a beautiful evening... my oldest son had stopped in and had supper with us... that was a treat. As he was backing out of the driveway, he stopped and said, "That would be a nice picture." We walked to the spot to see and he was right.... it was beautiful, so we took some photos....  :)
























  Something about the combination of the sun and the reflections, just looked really pretty.  The whole scene changed very fast, but we enjoyed snapping some pictures as it did.  A simple sidewalk view... turned glorious. :)

We see this same scene every day, and while it is a nice scene... the sun transformed it into a different sort of scene. It didn't last long... and I am so glad we were able to enjoy it.

 I noticed that even the sidewalk had taken on a special glow. Even as we walked just a bit, the sun was going down...


















Pretty soon, the scene changed even more and the reflections were not on the ground anymore... only the sky showed color.












So nice to watch... although I admit I was thinking that I should have started taking pictures just a few minutes earlier. :)












Sunsets are pretty spectacular sometimes.. other times they are mild, but they are beautiful, all the same. The everyday scenes we see are transformed when sprinkled with the light of the sun. Even these trees, that only show black here .... are beautiful.

It reminds me of what God does with us... regular, ordinary people.... and how He transforms us into something beautiful as we reflect His love....  When someone looks at me, I hope they see Christ in me - the changes He makes in us last a lot longer than the sunset. Thank you for visiting my blog today.... I hope you have a wonderful day and that you are able to enjoy the beauty around you as you remember the creator who made it. :)

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork."  Psalm 19:1

  9. Amazing how we see the beauty when we actually look for it and use our eyes the way our Father designed them in the first place. I wonder where your son got his eye for such things? Kidding… I think I already know. Thanks for the reminder to use our senses in honorable ways, sister.

    1. Yes, God's design is always perfect, but we seem to think we can "improve it"... so silly. I continue to be amazed at the beauty God gifts us with.... at the many ways we can see His hand in action.... Thank you so much for the beautiful and encouraging comment. :)
