Red Sun - Black sky












This is what we saw about two weeks ago as we were driving home at sunset. All pictures are straight out of my camera and unretouched.

"The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end." Isaiah 60:19,20

Fabulous photos of the sunset Ginny. The red sun against the black sky is amazing. We are having so many fires in this area right now that I thought we would get some dramatic sunsets but yet (not that I'm wishing for the fires, fortunately most are in the harvested fields and there has been little damage).

Great sunset photos. I especially like the last one,

Fantastic sun and sky photos.

Thanks for commenting about the sandwich/bun. I must remember to bring a note book everywhere I go and use it to. In fact I did have a note book in my bag, but I forgot to write it down. Now, I search the net, but can't find anything like like.

Absolutely positively outstanding pictures! God made a beautiful world for us to live in here on earth - then - for believers, promises a better home in Heaven.

That's a wonderful sunset! And your photos do it justice. I like the one with clouds floating across the best.

Doris Sturm said...

Amen! Isn't the Horizon an awesome place! I love to sky watch...from sunrise to sunset and at night when there's so many stars in a pitch black sky, you'd think you could just reach up and pick one for yourself...none other could have created this magnificent beauty but the great I Am!

Thanks so much for your compliment on my crocheted cactus. I enjoyed making it. I can't wait to make another...it'll be a round one this time.

Nezzy said...

Wow... gorgeous photos Ginny. Isn't it amazing how the sky put on a show in most unexpected way. The sky is always a great canvas of beauty and the Lord is most amazing artist of all time. Thanks for sharing this and you are right our Lord is our everlasting light.

Marsha's Mpressions said...

oh Ginny! Fabulous shots! Love that big red ball with the silhouette of the trees!

Glenda said...

WOW!! Amazing photos!! I like the part of the verse that says, "Your sun will set no more . . ." As much as I love to watch the sunset, one day that won't be necessary! No darkness - literally or spiritually!

Beautiful post, Ginny!

Melanie said...

Those are so beautiful, Ginny!!
I love the verse you chose to go with it.

From the Kitchen said...

Ginny: You asked how long Adam would be here. He's here for an entire week. Joy! And, then at the end of the month, younger son arrives. Their visits couldn't coincide because of work schedules but I'll take them any way that I can get them!!

Best,
Bonnie
