A Place In The Sun

"Don't cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won't let you see the stars."
Violeta Parra

I took these pictures earlier this year, in the summer, I believe. My place in the sun was breathtaking, and even after it set, I wanted to stay.

"He puts poor people on their feet again; he re-kindles burned-out lives with fresh hope, restoring dignity and respect to their lives-a place in the sun! For the very structures of the earth are God's; he has laid out his operations on a firm foundation."
1 Samuel 2

As usual, I'm taking Monday off the computer, see you all on Tuesday!

I don't blame you for wanting to linger after a sunset like that.
Now that summer is over I really miss seeing the sunshine. I know it's there under all those gray clouds though

These are beautiful pictures of the sunset. I don't blame you for wanting to stay. I also thought the quote was pretty neat.

Gorgeosu photos, Ginny! I don't see the sun set often, as my view is blocked by houses and buildings, so I am always in awe when I do see it.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Friend, You always take the best sun pictures... I love them--- and I love being in the sun also.. The winter especially is a great time to feel the sun on your body--just to warm you up a little...

YES, God does rekindle our burned-out lives!
Hugs,
