Sunset and Inspirations

I enjoy going out in the calm of the evening to capture the sunset.Some times I get to be witness to spectacular sky scenes and at other times it is more subdued, but either way,  it is wonderful to witness this special time. The beauty of it is that it happens daily so there are many chances to watch this and get pictures, as well.
Today, instead of a lot of chatter from me,I will share some quotes that I have found to be meaningful.I trust they will encourage, bless and inspire you.


None of us knows what the next change is going to
 be, what unexpected opportunity is just around the corner, waiting to change the tenor of our lives.
( Kathleen Norris)

Avoid looking forward or backward, try to keep looking upward.
( Charlotte Bronte)


I know that God is faithful.
I know that He answers prayers, many times in ways I may not understand.
(Shiela Walsh)


All my life through, the new sights of nature made me rejoice like a child.
( Marie Curie)


Live your life while you have it.
Life is a splendid gift— there is nothing small about it.
( Florence Nightingale)

Closing Thought:
God bless you and utterly satisfy your heart….with Himself.
( Amy Carmichael)

From my youth, being a farmer's daughter [more granddaughter but my father DID farm at one time]...I have a favorite today -- the silos in the falling sunlight.

I love the sunsets and you certainly have captured some gorgeous ones. Now that our grandson is studying weather, he has taught me a lot about the coloring of the sunsets. It is very interesting.

Hi Ruth, Your photos are excellent and I really like the way you set up this post with the photos and the words of encouragement. One thing we share for sure is an appreciation of God’s beauty. Sunsets and sunrises are wonderful reminders of God’s power. I always like to tell you which one of your pictures is my favorite and it is always tough to choose when they are all so good. This time I especially like the cylos at twilight. Just a wonderful shot! Hope your Spring is getting off to a good start. Thank you, as always, for your kind comments on my blog … I do look forward to them!
