The sun sets on another day...

It is funny, today I was less than 60 miles from where this picture was taken, and as I sat under a blanket of clouds watching sparkling flakes of crystal water fall to the ground and build fluffy mounds of snow cone material. This was warming someones heart and assailing them with the depth of color that only the sunrise or sunset can give us all. 

So too it is in life, It is hard to imagine but next to us people are experiencing different things, different emotions, different "depths" and colors, and in the end, we are all so close as to be inconsequential. If we just held out a hand to someone and let them know how we felt, we could share good times together, instead of sitting under our cloud and thinking that is all that is going on for everyone. So tonight, as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and feel positive, even though the negative seems to be closing in because somewhere, there is a good sunset, and we can all share in the feeling, even if we cannot see it.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish on the same star as someone special...

The sun sets on another day...

...and soon on my first book. Only a few chapters remain and then I will be running through the editing process!

Wow! It has been a fun ride.

You know sometimes when you finish one book it is time to start another, and I hope to do just that as I feel each of us should do when we truly get to the end of one story. The problem is, my book will be part of a series, and I can take the best of one on to the next. Isn't that the way we all should be? So as you close one book, remember not to lose the lessons you have learned in your first volume, and change the world, each and every day! As my book is ending in Texas I find I feel a lot for that state, even though I have not lived there. So people in Texas, Hoorah!

I hope everyone has an amazing night, and tomorrow it will be a fun post!

The sun set son another day...and I could not catch it today because the dern clouds were battling with the sun, making it virtually impossible to get a picture, So I sat and enjoyed all I could, and then enjoyed the twilight.

It is amazing how sometimes our good times are hard to see because the clouds keep coming in, but if we are diligent, and live the truth, I believe we will see the light eventually and the things we deserve will come to us. It is nice to believe that because most of us take a beating a great deal of the time, and don't get what  we deserve very often. So when you make a promise sitting on a hill with a man or woman, and look out to the future not knowing what the next instant will bring, expecting it to be bad, but knowing it may bring good, believe in yourself and pray each day that a wonderful life will come, then make it happen.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live every moment like it is truly a gift....

The sun sets on another day...

Colors that are almost unreal assault our senses, driving our minds to accept what our minds cannot see as real. The sun grasps at the darkness, trying desperately to hold it at bay, in the end there is no doubt, the struggle between light and darkness will dance again in just hours, but for now, the light show was enough for all of us to enjoy.

As we ponder yet another day consider the song I was sent: "I lived"

Many of these lyrics bring tears to my eyes, and I hope I can say when I am before the creator every one of the things mentioned here. I know for a fact I have not yet done it all, but I have stayed when others turned, taken the jump and not feared the fall, fallen in love and it hurt so bad, but no matter what I gave all I had, I took the pain, I have been many many places, but there are many more, Each pain I feel, every day that goes by, I know I am alive, and those broken bones will mend, but I will live every day, no matter what. 

There are other links with just the song, but the video I linked above has a little more meaning. Take a second, watch, and enjoy the moment.

Sleep sweet, love life, and never let a moment slip by, there just aren't enough of them....
