Southern Manitoba Sunset


It is no secret that I enjoy going to Lake Minniwasta at sunset, so today I share another one of those evenings with you.

The light was already getting low, when these ducks, possibly Redheads, flew across the lake.



The calmness of the evening was beautiful and having a kayak on the water was just the perfect accent.


Those deep, rich colors are so lovely.


The sun is fast slipping down below the horizon. Can you feel the calm of that evening? All troubles slowly melt away.


And so another day has ended. That orange sky will soon turn dark and the stars will come out.



Here is a prayer you may want to make your own.

Lord, please calm my heart and soul.

So many things are out of my control 

and I need Your love to soothe me and calm me.

Your love lets me know it will be OK.
