The Beauty at the End of the Day


 Paul is working in Charleston S.C. for a few days and I am down here with him. My wonderful sister is staying with the boys, for which I am very grateful.

I arrived here just before sunset last evening and went straight to the beach.
We come to this beach a few times each summer.
I have never seen it so empty.
So deserted.
So beautiful.

The way the sun hit the water, the sand and the sea shells was breath taking.
 
I was the only person there, surrounded by all this beauty.

It was the first sunset I have attempted to capture, so it was extra special to me.

Today, while Paul is working, my plans are to roam the streets of Charleston and attempt to capture some of the charm of the city.

But my mind is still thinking of the beauty of the sunset and the One who made it.

Simply beautiful, Jess! I did the same thing when we lived in Hawaii. Now the pics are in our room and the guest room. They remind me of the Lord's gift of creation to me each day. Enjoy your quiet time and time with Paul!
