Five Minute Friday. Three hundred-plus writers embrace five minutes of straight writing with one prompt each Friday. Unconcerned about punctuation, spelling, grammar. Just pure, real, straight-from-the-heart writing.
Here goes! Prompt:
Our home is set on a small hill, where each morning and evening I am able to behold through our windows the beauty God paints in each sunrise and sunset. Some are more breathtaking than others, but they are all beautiful. Each one is dramatically different and majestic in its own way. I find myself standing in awe as I gaze at each one.
I then quickly grab my phone to snap a picture. As beautiful as the pictures are, they don’t quite capture the glorious beauty I am blessed to witness.
I feel God paints each scene just for me. (Smile.) Some mornings I am brought to tears as I thank Him, in a way, for revealing Himself to me through His paintings. Through His colors. Through His scenes. In these I find great comfort and encouragement.
There was a time in my life where I wouldn’t have noticed God’s paintings in the sky. I was too busy making a name for myself. Too busy making more money. Too busy working. Too busy being “successful.” These paintings are a true gift to me today. My kids think I’m weird for appreciating them so much. I just tell them someday sunrises and sunsets will be important to them too.
I don’t understand how people can still question there is a God when they see what He paints for us each day. The one above I experienced at Siesta Key Beach in 2012. The one below is my favorite from last year’s vacation in Pensacola Beach.
Such beauty God paints just for us to enjoy!
