Sunset's Rest

The sunset was beautiful tonight. The golden glow of the setting sun made the snow sparkle and appear glossy and bright. Even with the golden glow of the sunset, the sky above was a vivid blue. At every sunset, I take time to sing (if even to myself) my Dad's favorite song: Day is dying in the west. Heaven is covering earth with rest. Wait and worship while the night sets the evening lamps alight through all the sky.

The setting sun beamed low in the sky and sent golden light upon objects in it's way. Icicles on a tree reflected the sun's glory. It seemed to join in the refrain of my Dad's song: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of thee! Heaven and earth are praising thee, O Lord most high!

Dusk fell upon another lake bed. Cozy lights from cabins dotting the shore cast an inviting glow. It was time to go home. With quiet heart and peaceful mind, the day ends with warm memories and sweet times.


  1. The sunset picture is gorgeous. I agree that snow makes things so peaceful. I am just looking forward to longer days so I can enjoy more of the day!
