I have always loved sunrises and sunsets. There is just something so peaceful in their beauty. Sunlight gives the feeling of freshness in the air as the sun comes up in the morning. The warmth of the sun is yet to create the vibrancy of the new day, but the promise is there. We especially feel that promise in the cold winter days. When we lived in Arizona, the sunsets I saw there took my breath away. I have yet to see sunsets that glorious anywhere else. I know I get to view Pacific sunsets which in their own right are beautiful too. Some evenings as I look westward, I just have to grab my camera and run outside to capture that beauty on film. A sunset shares with us a part of God's beautiful creation. He has painted the sky with an array of colors.

Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven.

Happy Birthday!

Happy 24th Danielle! Wow! How can it be 24 years already!!! I'll never forget these things about your birth:
1. Big spaghetti dinner at Ed's Restaurant...bad idea! 2. You were the only baby in the nursery who was constantly looking around at everything. All the others were either sleeping or crying! 3. How happy and blessed I was to have another healthy baby girl weighing in at 8 lbs 5 oz and 21 in. long!
