Today's sunset was incredibly amazing! Most cars were stopping to look, the runners and dog walkers were smiling and when the sun went down, there was that moment when the world and time itself just stops and gasps. And then it starts again and nighttime slowly awakens. I appreciate that I could catch the moment even though I didn't want to go out for grocery shopping!
One of the few things I wish I could change about our homesite is that we rarely see a sunset. Tonight was one beautifully stunning exception. “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”
Psalm 19:1 ESV. Thank You, Lord!
Tonight we raced against the west wind as he pushed a great stand of billowy thunderheads across the valley and up towards our mountain. He blew snarls in my hair and bent the tall meadow grasses into flaxen whirlpools as we lugged buckets of grain down to the hungry calves for their supper.
The sky had an eerie yellow tinge and lightning flashed on the darkening eastern horizon. When the thunder rumbled its deafening bass tones the calves became nervous, butting against us, searching for a non-existent teat or any source of comfort in the face of the coming storm. We filled their grain bins to overflowing, scratched their emerging horn nubbins, kissed them goodnight and ran for home with rain drops sending up dust clouds in the wake of our footprints behind us.
Inside, the wind beat against cabin, sneaking through cracks and chinks in old weathered logs, making the house whistle and sing in the darkening twilight.
I finished making supper just as the wind chased the sun over the western edge of the earth, and darkness gathered across the mountain. As we sat down to dine on our homegrown beef steaks, fresh corn and garden greens topped with just pulled carrots and peas, the raindrops splattered on the open windowsills and the moisture laden wind filled our curtains like a ship's sails on a stormy sea.
