SUNSET AND MOON RISING



Last night I took a walk at sunset with my camera. It was breathtaking. There's nothing like living near the water, especially here in Florida. On the front of the house, the sun was setting and on the back, the moon was rising. Even my lack of photographic skills don't completely kill the beauty of it. Very illustrative to me of life and the hope I have because of Easter and all that it represents to me personally. Even while the sun is setting, marking the death of the day, the moon is also rising simultaneously. God never leaves us without light and hope for the future. The seeming "end" of one thing always marks the beginning of something better. The best is always yet to be! Happy Easter! Have a wonderful weekend!

Are you just trying to make us all jealous? Because we all are! :)

annechovie said...

LOL!! Hey, Miss Joni! Yeah, I know. I am very lucky to live near some water, I REALLY appreciate it after living a land-locked life for 34 years!

Wow I really should have went to the beach for vacation rather than the desert.

I love that time of day when the sun starts to sleep, but not before a gorgeous exit, and the moon rises to say hello.
Have a nice Easter with the ones you love.
