I can only imagine...

Sunset

From the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same...
The name of the Lord is to be praised!

Is that not just incredibly beautiful?
We were in the midst of making supper last night when we were totally and utterly distracted by this.
I must have taken 30 pictures from different parts of the west side of our house.
Took me over an hour to whittle them to down to 15.
Could hardly bear to delete even the imperfect ones.

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-28

If these words do not bring you comfort, I pray you will seek the One who gives everlasting life.
The Lord Jesus Christ.

In His grace,
Cindy

Cindy,
I saw the exact same sunset last night and it stopped me for a while as well. Your colors and the colors I saw were exactly the same--stunning! Thanks for the message--"I can only imagine..."

Thank you for sharing the beauty of what you enjoyed. None here last evening. Your verses go so well with your reading today. The last chapters of Revelation.

It's moments like that that remind us that the Lord still holds the paintbrush of our lives and our world, isn't it! Just beautiful!!!
