From Sunrise to Sunset


Photo taken in Riveria Nayarit Mexico, one more of God’s amazing gifts!

For as long as I live on this earth I will continue to be amazed at the beauty that God continually puts before me. Not only is each day gift from God, but also in each day there are many gifts to be had. Will I chose to let God’s gifts slip by unnoticed or will I slow down and stop to unwrap them? If I don’t choose to unwrap them, will they still be there waiting or will they slowly slip away to be lost forever?

I am so thankful that I didn’t let this one slip away unnoticed. This evening I stopped and watched as this wonderful and amazing gift was unwrapped before my eyes. As the sun slowly slipped down into the ocean I watched the sky turned to beautiful shades of oranges, reds, yellows and blues and the waves were shining and glittering like black glass. I felt like an artist was painting on a canvas right before me.  As I savored and enjoyed this gift that was given to me I realized what an awesome God I serve and just how blessed I am. He is the artist, the amazing one who created this beautiful gift and I am thankful and in awe that he gave it to me.

    Wow T your sharing is so beautiful and as I read the Psalm I was shouting in inner Joy no one can hear me most of the time when I do this but God can.

    Audry is 96 and has no legs, I visit her in the Nursing Home and I’m always encouraged and uplifted when I do, she has asked me to create a Power point on Sunrises and Sunsets which I hope to do on our Holidays, would it be alright if I link it to this Post? hopefully I will be able to finish it with now having other commitments, although it will be a priority as I Trust in The Lord’s leading.

    I was asked last night to cook 50 slices for Morning, Afternoon Teas and Suppers for a Woman’s Convention in a few weeks, Ron said he will help me in between our sightseeing , we use to cook for youth and Church camps as a Ministry, so it is not new to us to do this. But I do give heartfelt thanks to God that I no longer have any pain from the pinched nerve in my Spine, thank you for your prayers and I also have His Balm if needed for my feet.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne

      Hi Anne, I am so thankful that your pain from your pinched nerve in your spine is gone! I will give prayers of thanks for you now and also will keep praying for your feet. You sound like a busy lady but sounds like you are giving of yourself which is so wonderful! Those who you are helping are blessed I am sure by you. Thank you for you kind words and so happy to hear of your shouting with joy inside I would love to hear that 🙂 Yes you may link your power point to this post, I hope it brings delight to your friend Audrey, I know she will love your powerpoint that you create. I loved the one you created for me.

    Wow, I know what you mean, I remember recently when I visited a place famous for its beaches and views, at one point as I sat in the boat watching dolphins frolicking in the water and taking in the cool sea breeze, all I could think was ‘Wow, God is just so awesome, like this wonderful artist who made everything so breathtaking’. We should definitely take time to enjoy the seemingly little things, because even those are beautiful gifts from God!

      Yes you are right, even those little things can be huge! Thank you for sharing of the picture God painted for you I can close my eyes and imagine it and I know it was beautiful!
