It’s Day 264 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and I must confess being a beginning blogger has taught me that the sunset shouts for joy. After a wonderful sermon this morning – on making sure we (seeds) are planted in soil that is rich with the right people, places, and things – I taught my faith-based Zumba class, then hunted down a Bargain Priced Book at Barnes and Noble. Elated to have found one by Emilie Richards – an author I discovered at my local grocery store of all places – and that I’d enjoyed an inexpensive linner (my family’s version of brunch; a combo of lunch and dinner) with a BWs Christmas gift card from my hubby, I settled in on my favorite end of the sofa to read. Anticipating the Season 2 finale of “Victoria”, the only thing wrong with my world – not having a blog topic – righted itself when I went to warm up my tea. Our house backs up to woods and the kitchen window provides a picturesque view. Tonight, it framed a stunning sight. Grabbing my phone, I stepped onto the deck just in time to capture the sun as it dipped below the treeline in a perfect haze of pink that made my soul well up with hallelujahs. Not knowing a Scripture that spoke of sunsets, I looked this up: “They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs: “You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.” – Psalm 65:8.
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose novice blogger who wants to create artful posts, I must confess, I wish I had a fancy camera and the skill to use it proficiently so I could have fully conveyed the breathtaking beauty of the colors depicted in this sunset’s pallete. But since I don’t possess either, I offer what I do have in the hopes that you readers will be drawn not to the art but to The Artist. I also offer it as a sacrifice of praise to Him for providing me with such a blogworthy picture and Scripture. Not only does the sunset shout with joy; so do I.
Are you Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose about taking time to appreciate God’s art all around you? When is the last time you enjoyed and expressed joy over a sunset?
Be savvy & chic,
