The Sunsets in my Life...

Hi there Blog Family!!  Sunday night was the most beautiful eve to watch the sun go down.

I have been known to run into neighbor's back yards just to catch another glimpse of the sinking sun from another view!  My friend from  "LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE" understands ~because she will track down a good sunset photo op if she has to sit in her car and wait or tromp through fields, a girl after my own heart-ha!

The view from between 2 trees in the backyard.

Good Night Sun

I dislike to have to say good night
To God's beautiful fading light
That by day warms all the hearts and fields
Then every eve it always yields,
To the darkness...

Rich warm colors cheer my soul
I scamper here and there, as is my goal
To catch each passionate last ray
Of the beautiful Sun God gave this day,
Before it fades from view.

The words to "Taps" come to mind as shadows grow long
"Day is done, gone the sun,
From the earth, from the sky, from the sea.
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh..."

   When I was a little girl in 2nd or 3rd grade, my teacher chose me to sing taps at a program in the auditorium.  A six grade boy played each line of taps from the balcony on his trumpet and hesitated after each line so I could sing the words in echo from the stage.  I was frightened and shaky but the words were so inspiring and It worked out well.  Not a sound was heard from the audience.  This is one of my fondest memories..

Thank you so much for visiting today and do come again when you have time.  You can visit my other blogs by clicking the links in my sidebar.  Wishing you a most wonderful week ahead.  Never blue on Monday,

My heart to yours...

Breathtaking & emotional sweet Kerrie. I love your poem & can just picture that sweet little you up there singing out your heart.

Have a beautiful day ~
Hugs & love,

You certainly have seen some lovely sunsets. I think the best I have seen was in Spain when I lived there.
Loved the verse it rounded off your blog beautifully.

Thanks for the mention, Kerrie!! My favorite picture here is the second one, with all the green surrounding, and just that peek of light! And your little story of so long ago adds so much to this, it made me smile!
