Beautiful Sunset

Heavenly color in the western sky




Isaac and I watched a beautiful sunset last night while driving home from Madisonville, KY. In about half an hour, the western sky changed from shades of pink to intense reds, roses, and purples. I kept wishing I could pull over and snap a photo, but traffic was heavy. Finally, we had a chance to stop on the shoulder just south of Crofton, KY, and Isaac took this picture from the car window.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
