The Sunset!



It was a couple of weeks ago when I took this picture. I was driving around one night and decided I wanted to take a drive around the lake nearby. I’m so glad I did because the view was breathtaking. I’m just as much at fault as the next person when it comes to not taking in the small things. I get so caught up in my life that I fail to see the beauty that’s around me.

I think sunrises and sunsets are such a gift from God. And seriously when one comes around like this, I just want to stop what I’m doing and sit in awe. It’s like a tapestry that can only be created by his hands.

My life is never picture perfect. I have days where the sun is shining and then I have days where its pouring rain and I feel like I’m drowning in the drought. But I’m always reminded that the sun rises and sets each day, and in between those times, the days hold something different for each of us. It’s amazing in the blog world how we can all relate to each other and know that we all walk through the same “crap” (for lack of better word) in life.

Just wait for that next sunset and be reminded that as the sun sets, it will surely rise again and joy comes in the morning!

A little Wednesday nugget for you! :)

That's a great picture! And encouraging words. :) Just this morning on my walk I enjoyed the gorgeous sunrise. The sun was a big globe of bright orange and it took my breath away. He is lovely!
