My love affair with sunsets....

I adore sunsets. I love the gold ones. The purple and orange and pink ones. I take nearly as many photos of sunsets as I do of chickens and of my children making goofy faces, LOL.
I love the uniqueness of each and every one. The way the light shines through trees.
They are like witnessing a miracle every day. I draw and would love to learn to paint, but I know I could never create such gloriousness as I witness all the time.
God has created so many wonderful things for us to enjoy. That even when I am hurrying home from somewhere if I see a beautiful sunset, I will stop take pictures enjoy it for a few minutes.
I just cant seem to help myself. They seem to be for me a moment to think wow look what God can do. It is such a show of Gods glory and the miraculous, some people may not see it that way, but seriously could you create something that happens every day and make it different and glorious unto its self every day. I don't think I could in fact I know I can't. I drew pictures on the white boards at my previous job, as the seasons changed, and while the residents and the staff at the nursing home enjoyed my pictures, there is no possible way I could have come up with a new totally original design each and every day. God you are just so amazing, to take something that could be mundane in the way that it is an everyday thing and make it special and unique and beautiful.

Be Blessed today and enjoy your sunset.

It never ceases to amaze me when I see God's handywork in the sunsets. When driving to church on Wednesday nights, we go through a lot of open pasture-land and you never see the same sunset twice... just as you said, special and unique! :) And you captured them so perfectly on the camera- anytime I try to photograph a sunset it never comes across like a postcard! But your pics look great! thanks for sharing with us

Thank you both for your kind comments. I so love taking pictures. I take tons of them. I always have my camera on me. My Grandpa and Grandma always did as well and perhaps that were I inherited the urge, LOL...
