Celestial Gifts

We drove down to Tuscaloosa tonight to have dinner with our friends, Jerry and Carol , Bob and Brandi.
We took the long way down Highway 69 and as we crossed Lake Tuscaloosa the sunset blazed.

Never have I seen cloud formations and colors like these this glowing embers that intensified as the sun dropped into the boiling clouds.

It seems the heavens have sent gifts this whole month,
the full moon  was one of the most beautiful pearls ever in the night sky last weekend,  meteor showers this week, and then this sunset tonight......a bounty of rare and beautiful gifts!  How lucky can we get???

Beautiful celestial gifts and time with can be so exquisite when you least expect it.  I know this is the week before Christmas and for many the mad rush of the holidays will rob you of all the gifts around you.   Take time to see the beauty, smell the scents of the season,  listen to the music, and enjoy your time with family and can all change in the blink of an eye.  Cherish each memory, every laugh, and hug and make a wish on the evening star.  It will all be over before you know it.


  1. I think it's such a shame when people are so immune to their surroundings they can't truly see how they are enveloped everyday by perfect fragile natural beauty!

    Take care

  2. That pic and so as what Sir Rick posted n his blog are beautiful.

    Dropped to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
