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!

Good Night Sun
©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart
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..
