This morning the sun peeked over the horizon revealing a uniquely bright frost. It was quite heavy. It actually looked more like a snow. More so than the dusting of snow we received a couple of weeks ago. Mother nature performs these special features like that from time to time.
Today's Christmas Cantata at church was fantastic. The church sanctuary was packed. The choir was excellent, and the orchestra that preformed was outstanding. Our minister did a great job of combining the music and worship service into a wonderful gift of Advent celebration.
As the day came to a close, I watched the sunset and it reminded me of this photo I took a while back. I have always loved sunset. I don't know why. It's just been special to me my entire life. At any rate, this photo reminds me how fortunate I have been. In the fore ground you can see the silhouette of an aging piece of farm equipment. It's about as basic to farming as the earth itself. My upbringing and formative years were the same. I was taught honesty, hard work, education,faith, and family. The trees and bushes along with the gorgeous sky, kind of symbolize my lifelong love of nature. The jet contrail........well, it reminds me that once that was me flying the jet streaking across the sky. I absolutely loved it.
As I watched the sun say good day, I couldn't help but bow my head and say.....AMEN!
Here's to your Health, Happiness, Peace and Understanding.
