Sunset Silhouette

It was one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve seen in a long time. I was sitting with my back to the window when my daughter yelled, “Mom, Look!” I turned to look out the window and was amazed by the colors. We couldn’t help but jump in the car to follow the sunset and enjoy the colors. We wanted to take it all in. My son called on the phone and I hear, “Mom, look at the sky” he says. Smile.

Love that there are times when we all can’t help but look up.

Love that “the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His Handiwork” (Psalm 19:1), and there are times when there’s no mistaking His Glory, His Beauty, His Amazing Presence.

After a busy day of keeping my head focused on the unlimited tasks right in front of me, it was so incredibly refreshing to look up, see, enjoy, and smile.

What made it even more worthwhile? That two of my children were taking it all in as well. If it hadn’t been for them, I would have missed the beauty all around me and been oblivious to the fact that it was even there. Thankful for moments in time when we not only see the beauty, but are reminded to open our eyes and awareness in order to seize the opportunities to see it.
