Sunsets and Stars

I used to frequently do "Silent Sundays" which was posting pictures instead of writing, so you keep your focus and energy on worshipping God on Sundays, and NOT on worrying about getting your post in for the day. I still like to do it but the blogger that ran it no longer does. So instead I want to post some pics but also tell you shortly about my wonderful evening!

This was the beautiful sunset - and I just took these a couple hours ago so no they have not been digitally altered in any way - that is the real color! lol...this was also taken right from my driveway looking through the neighbors tree looking in the direction of the lake.

I know this next picture LOOKS like water but it actually the pavement of our neighborhood road, hehe! I got down close to the pavement for the shot and my husband as soon as he saw it said, "That LOOKS like it is water!"

These next few pics were of us hanging out on the blanket I layed out in our front yard so we could wait for the stars to appear. I got to lay next to my daughter and explain to her that God made those stars and I asked her, "Wasn't that nice of God to make those stars so pretty and put them in the sky for us?" To which a smiling girl replied in a high pitched excited voice, "Yea".

It was a beautiful evening and I'm so glad I enjoyed it with my family, in the peace and quiet so I could truly enjoy the moment. What have you done to slow down and just "enjoy" recently???

What a beautiful way to spend a Sabbath evening! The pictures are incredible; I only wish I could have been there too! Silent Sunday's is a great idea. Keep doing those priceless moments-the kids will always remember them.
