As I sat down in the "reading chair," I noticed the view outside the west-facing windows in the living room. The silhouettes of the trees formed a stark contrast to the graduated colors of gold and black. Gold and black? How odd. Sunsets are purple, pink, orange, and red. As the sun set further, I saw purples join with pinks to overwhelm the gold. I tried to look back down at my book and concentrate on the words, but it was no use. I just wanted to stare at the window. The colors were changing every few seconds. The phone rang. Phil said "Go look out the front door. There's a beautiful rainbow. Then go look out the back door." The rainbow formed a large arch that seemed to loop over our neighborhood. What a pretty way to welcome the evening.
It's Thursday, but not just any Thursday. It's a spring break night and that means we will stay up late watching various mysteries and detective stories from England. We have so much fun trying to solve the case before the fictional detectives.
So it's been a great day...God-glory viewed right outside my house and God-gifts (my family) nestled together enjoying each other's company.
