Going, Going, Gone...





First, let me say that I will be taking a computer break again on Monday. So I will see you all on Tuesday, when I will announce the winner of my Vera Bradley contest!  You still have till midnight this Sunday to enter!


This was the sunset this evening, all seen through just a little hole in the many clouds after a good rain. We just got a tiny glimpse then it was gone, so quickly...we also got the tiniest glimpse of Jesus before he was gone at such a young age, but what he did, said, and showed us will never be gone.


"I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going...I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
John 14

I do so love that last shot, i like the way it is slowly fading, but that last one is just plain gorgous. the sky is always there for us to shoot at. sky shots rock and these sure do. enjoy your day off with the kiddos.

Gorgeous pictures, Ginny... We went to Knoxville yesterday and saw a pretty sky/clouds on the way home.. Thought about Susan sitting up there on that pink cloud...

Pray for us. We're headed to Atlanta tomorrow (about a 4.5 hour drive each way)for the funeral. Twill be a long day.

Did you read the new book out - Heaven Is For Real?

God will always be there whether is light is on or off - good to know.

Have a good day off tomorrow.

Happy Sunday.

Karin said...

Oh what glorious sunset and I love that you took the sequence of photos! My little camera does not do a great job of all the sky pictures I've taken - simply doesn't do it justice. Have a great week-end and God bless!

Connie Arnold said...

Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos, Ginny! And even more, thanks for the reminder and scripture.

Stephanie V said...

That still looks hot, hot, hot.

LC said...

Another delightful series of "looking up" images. As beautiful as they are, they and your scriptures remind me that we have to look higher than the sky, beyond the sun, moon and stars, beyond the heavens, for assurance about our future.

Have a restoring and joyful Monday!

Ann said...

you always manage to find such lovely sunsets. Enjoy your break and see you Tuesday

Doris Sturm said...

I miss seeing good sunrises and sunsets, but when I'm living in the Blue Ridge mountains, I'll have that back again....happy Sunday and enjoy your day off ;-)

Regina said...

I sometimes think of it as chasing sunsets..they fade so quickly! The last reminds me of the volcano at night! Beautiful and so were your thoughts and verse-
Well, I recall you said something about needing our address..I will shoot you a line so you can be sure to mail me my purse (ha ha)

George said...

That round pizza like dish: OTAK Traditionally it is wrapped in banana leave like an envelope and BBQ.

This restaurant lined the bottom with banana leaf and steamed.

It is made of minced fish paste with shrimps and spices and coconut milk. The spice is not chilli hot.

Looks like the sky is in flames, gorgeous

Fred Alton said...

That's some most spectacular foto work, Ginny!

Ann said...

You are a great Grandma.

Blogging is a de-stressing and distracting time for me. When I am writing, especially when I am editing, I get very tired. Blogging with good friends like you relaxes me.

Shanda said...

Gorgeous photos. There are many colorful sunsets but most don't do justice in photos. These are beautiful

SquirrelQueen said...

Glenda said...

Wow! Just beautiful, as always. Enjoy your Monday, dear friend.

Melanie said...

Beautiful pictures of the sunset, Ginny! You are a wonderful photographer! :)

Ann said...

You must have spent a long time, adjusting and snapping. My sky photo, took couple of seconds. My husband said when it is so bright, you won't take good photos. I thought I just snap and see.
