“I don’t think people care about the sunsets as much as we do.”

That’s what my youngest daughter said to me last night.

I remember thinking something similar when I was a young girl. I was fascinated with whatever I saw when I looked up at the sky and I wondered why no one else talked about it. Couldn’t they see? The colors the sun painted the sky when it filtered through the clouds in the evenings. Or the bright full moon on a winter’s night. Didn’t they notice the way the clouds gathered angrily before a thunderstorm?

And the stars and rainbows and the way lightning streaked across the sky sometimes when there was no storm at all.

I hope I always look up at the sky……..in wonder……..of the One who made it all.image

But when I am walking around in the world unaware of the beauty around me I pray that it gets my attention or even better…..that someone around me says, “Look”.

    When I see a particularly beautiful sunset I often think, “If I could paint this sunset people wouldn’t believe me because it is so beautiful.”

      Same here. The pink sunrise photo has no filter, no added anything. No need for it – it is stunning and taken with an iphone.

    Beautiful post. People need to get off there phones more and just enjoy nature. Love seeing a beautiful sunset or the clouds before a storm.

      This is what I’m teaching my young ones. My teenaged daughter misses so much around her because of the phone. We have recently put a strict limitation on her phone use. In two weeks, we’re going on a backpacking trip on the AT where there will be no cell service. I can hardly wait to be disconnected from all of the phones and social media and be more connected to each other and God’s creation.
