MY QUIET EVENING HIKE

I left hubby doing dishes inside the little trailer and I took off to climb a hill and watch the sunset.
The wildflowers and grasses were beautiful in the light of the setting sun.
It was a King Midas moment.....everything was turning to gold.
The silence was broken only by two deer, one on top of the hill, one on the bottom, snorting at each other.
Did I ever tell you that I love sunsets?
And now the sun is gone, leaving behind only a few golden clouds. It was the most peaceful moment I've spent since my mom died. Somehow I felt close to her up here on the hill. Sunsets make me feel a if I've been given a glimpse of heaven, and I feel closer to God. And since I know mom is in heaven with God, I guess I felt closer to her, too. Peace is in my heart.
I pray you also know this Peace.

Hello,

I linked to your blog from your daughter's, and was just astounded at the beauty of these photos. The third photo, with the overlook, brought tears to my eyes.

This time of year I somehow feel closer to God, but I haven't taken any walks lately. I loved seeing photos from yours!

Lovely, just lovely. We don't have any hills or mountains to climb in Florida. And if we did, it would be too hot to do any climbing. Enjoy and continue posting pics.
