One of my favorite things about our "new" (we bought it in March 2008) house is how it is situated in our neighborhood. Our subdivision is on a hill and our house is on a corner lot, so we are blessed with a nice view of the sky and distant mountains even though we have close neighbors all around.
We have enjoyed the sunsets from the back deck all year, but a few days ago I noticed that the sunset had moved slightly to the south! Throughout the summer the sunset was behind the neighbor's house, so we had to walk around the block if we wanted to watch it go down. Now that fall is here, the sunset is at the end of the street!
Every evening I try to remember to be in the kitchen about 6:00 to watch the panorama. Tonight I took the camera. But, try as I might, I could not capture the true beauty of tonight's sunset. The picture only reflects some of the spectacular colors, but not the crisp details of the sharply outlined disc as it slipped behind the mountains. That part, you'll just have to imagine.
Have you watched the sunset lately? Isn't God good to bless us with beauty simply for our pleasure?
