Posting this for my family who has been fabulous through this troubling season!
As we drove home the other day, this beautiful sunset adorned the sky.
“What a gorgeous sunset!” I said, casting my eyes heavenward with my camera perched on my lap.
My daughter, Kelli, smiled. “I know,” she said, getting off the interstate and zooming through a car dealership to get me to an open field so I could take a photograph. “It’s just what you do!”
A lovely conclusion! And a great end to a wonderful birthday!
12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!” Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! 1 Chronicles 16: 31-34
I was awakened bright and early by a call from my daughter. As I fumbled with my phone, Jennifer giggled and waited patiently for me to figure out my cell. Amazingly, this is the child who hated mornings. The beginning of any given day combined with me saying, “Rise and Shine,” sent her deeper under the covers with a growl on her lips.
As I headed downstairs to meet my lovely daughter, this beautiful sunrise greeted me. (Click photo to enlarge)
