A Glorious Sunset

September 30, 2015

What a sunset we had last night! I had been working at my computer for, well, let’s just say too long. I got up and went in to the kitchen and the backyard was glowing! Literally. You know, that golden glow that sometimes reflects off the sunset in the evening? I went out the back door and to my amazement was a beautiful orange, yellow, purple, and blue sky. And this was looking to the East! I grabbed my camera and tried to get some photos, but I know they could never do the beautiful evening sky justice.

Looking East in the backyard...

Looking East in the backyard…

Love the silhouette of the weather vane on my shed!

I grabbed my keys and went out front. The sky was blazing! I snapped a few pictures and walked as far as I could to see if I could see the sun, but there were too many houses and trees in the way.

Out the front door, looking west....

I thought about jumping in the car and going to the park, but I figured by the time I did, it would be gone. So I walked back home, enjoying every moment, and was blessed with a sense of peace and calm.

The sun was gone, the sky was getting darker, but I seized the opportunity to enjoy it.

You know, the sun rises and sets every day. Take the time to enjoy it often!
