Valentine Sunset








What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.

Hey, the header was of a leaf filled with rain water making a heart shaped reflection of the tree it fell from- thanks for you words:)

Lovely sunset pictures. It brought to mind the lovely sunrise before it sets in the evening. The sunrise aways reminds me that the Son shines in our lives and the beautiful sunset reminds me of impending darkness....times when we go through tough times. But then it doesn't last forever cos the sunrise will soon come.......when we gaze at the beauty of the Son that shines :) Have a blessed day.

Today's photos are magical. I love red sunsets. Remember the old, "Red sky at night sailor's delight, Red sky in morning, sailor take warning". Local fisherman still use the color of the sunset to plan their trips for the following day. I hope you have a great evening, Ginny. Blessings...Mary

Re: over the top wedding, the groom's father is a billionaire from Chicago. They really wanted elephants and cheetahs but our govt won't let them.

I happened to be there when they went to the temple, took lots of photos, but decided I wasn't going to publiscise for them.

Does the red sky signifiy the end of winter?
