I almost missed it. It was a long day at work and I was so tired by the time I headed to my car. I’ve gotten used to it being dark since we went off Daylight Savings Time by 5 pm. But that evening it was different. I exited our back door to this. As I walked down the cement stairs it caught my breath. Not just a sunset…one with orange and yellow and a series of clouds that was beautiful.
My first instinct was to grab my phone and take a photo. You know those moments when you think, ‘I’ve got to get a picture of this to show my friends and family. They won’t believe how gorgeous this is and I want to share it!’ So I did. And I wasn’t the only one. Several coworkers did the same thing and I watched their photos pop up on their Facebook pages. They saw it too. And the funny thing was it only lasted a few minutes. It was gone so quickly.
It was one of those ‘you had to be in the right place at the right time’ situations. Moments like those make you realize you must be where God wants you…He wanted you to experience that moment of beauty. Oh how we miss so many of them.
Have you missed moments of beauty around you lately? God is there trying to tell you He loves you in so many ways. Even through a sunset. I hope you will take a moment to see the beauty around you and catch those moments. It makes life so much richer…and you are richer for it! We love you Peace Family!
