To look away would be a sin.
Surely, not stopping to watch
and take it in
would be refusing God’s gracious invitation
into beauty, peace, awe, and wonder.
I’m so grateful for the colors …
hues of blues,
and I especially love the pinks and purples …
How do you do that, God,
all those colors in one sky always changing?
Of course then I recall that I have
the gift of eyesight …
thank you again for that.
It becomes so clear that my purpose
at this moment
is simply to notice you,
to pay attention to you,
to receive and be grateful,
and when I do …
you are grateful as well.
I don’t remember ever witnessing a sunset more beautiful.
Thank you for sharing it with me.
