When The Sun Is Going Down...

There's this moment. A slowing of the buzz of the day.  Almost a sense of drowsiness takes over...

Everything seems aware of least out here in the arms of nature...

...especially if we human kind pause and acknowledge it along with the birds, coyotes, horses, cicadas, grasses, and winds...that the day is done, the earth is calming and there is a peaceful pause before the darkness closes in.

When I lived in the bright lights of the city, this hovering of time went almost completely unnoticed...the lights come on and the masses rush by...but out here,  when the sun is going down it is a glorious thing. It is often pure delight!

My Canvas...

For those of you who didn't get to see these on Facebook, I thought I'd post here as well.  

I like to paint the landscape with flowers... If time and money weren't an issue and my back was strong, I'd live in a world of plants, flowers, and beauty.  

But instead,  I brighten one corner at a time.  I'm so thankful to not be moving again and I can actually establish a bed for a change.  

The fun part is that this is just the beginning.  I have some big day!

Until then,  I'll just keep working on and enjoying the cheerful corner I have right now. 

Ever Wonder???

Ever wonder what it'll be like the moment between the dead rising first and then those who remain being caught up into the clouds?

I picture it to look like there is something more to be experienced just beyond that cloud.

It's like catching a glimpse of a world beyond.     

I know it is just vapors and the star we orbit.   Atmosphere and science...and all that jargon. 

But to me it serves as a reminder of the beauty of creation and the glory of the Creator.
