This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

God's Painting

I am on my way home this afternoon and in awe of the sunset that the Good Lord painted for us today.  It was the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen in my life.  I tried so hard to capture a picture of it, but being in the city, it was very difficult.  As I'm marvelling over this beautiful sight,  my cell phone rings and it's my daughter who lives 2 hours away. 

She says "Mom, please tell me you are seeing the same sky I am seeing!"

I said "Yes, I am, and it's gorgeous!"

She's exclaiming over how she is over the spillway and the sunset is reflecting off of the water and the moon is full and the stars are shining.  I am sure her vision of it was much more splendid than mine but nevertheless it had the same effect on us.

She was so overcome with joy and wonder that I am so thankful that God allowed us to see HIS beautiful work of art.

This was the best I could do to capture it.  It was a time I wished I would have been somewhere in the country.

You know, I'm here in Jersey, and I was admiring the sundown myself tonight! It must have been some where between 4:30 and 5:30, the sky was streaked orange and pink! Wish I had a camera! Great shot too.~Diane~

About the only time I see a lovely sky like that is in the wee hours of the morning through the windows of the ER.  The sky will look all pink and yellow as the sun is rising.

God really can paint a beautiful picture when is so inclined! :)
