I had the most marvellous moment of grace on the drive home from church last night...I pulled over by Grand Lake to commune with God, the night sky, the fading remnants of sunset stretched like a rainbow across the horizon, and the peaceful sounds of water lapping the edges of the lake. Alas, I did not have my camera with me, because the scene was one of indescribable beauty. But I have photos to share from other evenings...
As I've said before, the view of the sky from my back deck is absolutely amazing. I am so blessed to witness the most stunning sunsets. Sometimes the light gently fades, the cloudless blue sky deepens, deepens into an unfathomable and luminous expanse, and my soul feels connected with God and all the mysteries of the universe. Other evenings the clouds swirl and gather across the horizon, the sky is ablaze with brilliant shades of orange and red, and my heart skips a beat of wonder and awe. Always my spirit is lifted...
Last night the colours ranged from a most delicate mauve to a deep, glowing orange. Here's a sample of the display...

And a few more photos of my beautiful sky taken a few evenings ago. The Shubenacadie River runs through my community (just across the road from my house) and I'm sure the river valley has its own little weather system! I find it fascinating how fast the sky can change colour and texture and light. It really is a most wondrous thing to behold. Thank you God for sunsets!!
