Thankful 30: Day 27–Sunset
I have joined Emily’s* 30 Day Challenge:
I’m challenging myself to post a picture every day during the month of November (30 Days To Be Thankful For) and to add a caption as to why I am thankful. — Emily
Day 27: I’m grateful for sunsets.
The rosy glow of the setting sun painted the dining room, as phantom chair and lamp shadows glided up the walls.
The pastels shades of the evening light invited me outside to watch the sky being transformed by sunset.
The delicate colors in the sky were backdrop to milkweed and common grasses.
As the shadows deepened, the colors intensified.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light.
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows—
light! sunbursts of light!
Isaiah 9:2 The Message
The horizon began to burn with gold and rose-tinted fire.
God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen. I Timothy 6:15,16 NIV
All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, “Light up the darkness!” and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful. 2 Corinthians 4:5,6 The Message
An explosion of color, of glory!
Everything was created through him;
nothing—not one thing!—
came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
the darkness couldn’t put it out.
John 1:3-5 The Message
