Foggy sunset on the Prairie

Now don't get me wrong, I will always be a little mountain girl. I grew up in the beautiful rolling hills of the Ozarks surrounded by giant trees and abundant water. That will always be my vision of what heaven must look like. The lush greenery of forest and field there brings joy to my soul, but the sunsets just can't match those of the prairie.

Here the sky is huge and unobstructed. Almost every night it seems ablaze as the sun creeps below the horizon for its' nightly rest. Vivid pinks and peaches burst forth and cast a rosy hue on all that they touch. It seems like each evening is a masterpiece waiting to be born. It is especially beautiful when the fog is rolling in. A hush seems to fall upon the world as it slips into a restful slumber. I marvel anew at God's handiwork.

I encourage you to make time today to recognize the beauty in your midst wherever it may be.

Blessings to you.

  2. Breathtakingly beautiful! I even got the goose bumps reading. You have such a wonderful way with words. Thanks for the reminder to stop and marvel at God's handiwork.

  3. Love your beautiful pictures! The kitten in the Fall leaves is so cute. My mother loved sunsets. Every time I see one, I remember her.

  4. Hello Dear Friend, What beautiful pictures of the sunsets, I also enjoyed your writings, you seem to have a gift of expressing your thoughts, and believe me that is a gift.
    Thank you for visiting and leaving me such encouraging words. You asked about the dishes. I bought them at TJMAX. they are made by Johnson Bros., and I believe the pattern is Autumn Monarch. Good luck in finding them.

  5. Beautiful sunset pictures!! We live where it is wooded and I can't see sunsets like that unless I go out to some of the surrounding farm fields.

    Love your new Fall header with the adorable kitten!!
