Sunrise & Sunset

IMG_6241Every day God paints us 2 beautiful paintings.  One of the Sunrise, and the other of the Sunset.  We are fortunate enough to live in an Eco-estate, with the mountains behind us, and a dam in front of us.  To top it off, we have a view of the ocean.  I can honestly say, that looking out at this view, is simply heaven on earth.  Whenever the sun sets or rises, it reflects on the dam, creating a mirror image.

I am beginning a little photo journal of our daily sunset and sunrise.

Our family live by these philosophies, and every evening there is great excitement when the sun sets.  And, once again, each morning when the sun rises.


Every day God paints 2 paintings: sunrise & sunset

Sunsets: A little piece of Heaven on earth

This morning, there was a chill in the air, but that didn’t stop me from stepping out barefoot onto the cold verandah.  The vision I saw, awoke my soul, and prepared me for my day ahead.

“Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting.” Richard Paul Evans

“A Sunrise is God’s way of saying, “Let’s start again.”  Todd Stocker

Look at what greeted me this morning.  How possibly can anyone’s day begin better than this?
