We had no idea when we moved to the farm that we would have such a “magnificent” view of the sun setting every evening! What a beautiful blessing, and we just have to share them with you!
These pictures are from last night. During the winter the sun sets over the open field. However, during the summer months the sun sets behind the trees. Pretty magnificent any way you see it!!
There are times the amber reflection of the sun setting creates a glow that shines through the back of the house making the whole atmosphere glow. This is a true example of seeing the blessing of the little things, and to think, if that big ball of fire were just a few degrees closer to the earth everything would burn up. On the flip side, if the sun were just a few degrees further away from the earth we’d freeze.
God is such a great creator, He knew exactly where to place the sun so that we could thrive. It’s so easy to take for granted the world around us, not taking time to understand just how carefully and creatively God placed everything! Take some time today to look around and see what God has placed right in your backyard, so to speak…
The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea it boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear the Lord, and let everyone stand in awe of him. For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command. ~Psalm 33:6-9
