Sunrise and Sunset

With fall in full swing, the sunrises and sunsets have been magnificent. Early in the morning the turquoise, pink and orange pastels have been lovely and the evening sunsets have been brilliant. During the day the blue skies exhibit a clear blue. What a blessing it is to live in a country where the air is clear, at least it is out here in the Hill Country. After spending time in China and India, I appreciate America beyond description. I have traveled all over the world and never have I found a place that I love more. Lush tropical islands do not appeal to me. I love the open spaces and panoramas of Texas. In Egypt I was encouraged to rise before dawn to see the sunrise over the Nile. It was not as pretty as the sunrise over the cliff at my ranch. The sounds of nature and the lack of intrusive noise nurture the soul. I don’t see God in a flash of light but rather in his creation. No matter the God to whom you pray, he/she is present. Take time to listen.
