I’ve lost track of what day of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project, and am blissfully exhausted from a two days of walking the island, but I couldn’t turn in before posting a pic of Sunset at Put-In-Bay. (Went back and checked once home –– Day 379!)
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose relatively newbie blogger, I must confess I’m no photographer. But God is the Master Artist, and when His handiwork is on display, all that’s required of me is to point my Smart Phone, click away, and offer up my appreciation for the Masterpiece and my praise of the Master who painted this sunset at Put-In-Bay.
Are you Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and mindful of the beautiful creation we get to inhabit? I hope you’ll find time to soak it in like a sunset.
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?
