Beauty.....

The most beautiful things on this earth were created by our God.

We have a little piece of land a little way out of town and we try to go there a few times a week and walk.  Some days we take our cooler with a little wine and watch the sunset.  Some days we take sandwiches in our cooler and have a little picnic supper as we watch the sunset.

Below is our little man made pond.  Maybe one day we will have fish, but for now it's just a pretty place to sit.



When the sun starts to set it is a huge, glowing, burning ball in the sky and if you look at it too much, you'll end up seeing spots!


As it continues to set, it becomes a softer.....

but no less beautiful glow.


Then it just colors the sky.  I love the way the rays are coming up through the clouds and over the trees.

Finally, it's gone and a stillness settles in.....so we turn our chairs....

to see the moon rising.

It's good to have a little silence and peace and to enjoy the creation in this crazy, loud, ever moving world we live in.

These verses from Psalm 136 say it all.....

to him who by understanding made the heavens.... who made the great lights....the sun to rule over the day.... and the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever!
