Appreciating Beauty . . . in People and Sunsets


One of the most satisfying experiences I know is fully to appreciate
an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look
at a sunset...I don't find myself saying,
'Soften the orange a little more
on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base,
and use a little more pink in the cloud color...'
I don't try to control a sunset.
I watch it with awe as it unfolds.

Magnificent pictures and a great quote. Just like each sunset, God made us all differently.

The view out our kitchen window the last two nights looked almost exactly like this. I figure it's because of smoke in the air. Fire struck close to home today. A brush fire only a half mile from our bottomland!
