Beaches and sunsets
The Pineapple Sandwiches Collection
There is something so magical about standing on the edge of the ocean watching a sunrise or sunset. You feel so small compared to the never ending waves in front of you.
Whenever I’m standing before something beautiful…from the big and beautiful scenery during my travels, to the tiny moments of my day when my kids are laughing their sweet laughs…I want to capture it and keep it forever with a photo or painting. But then, when I look at the result, the image is never as beautiful as the real thing. It’s only a shadow. A reminder of the beauty in front of us of these precious gifts God gives. I always feel like there is no way to do it justice. No words are good enough. No pictures are the same.
It reminds me of the story of Moses in the Bible, when he asked God to show him his glory, and God passed over him and shielded him so he only saw his back. Moses wouldn’t have physically been able to handle all of that beauty and glory. Nothing can do it justice…
I think the beauty of sunsets and God’s gorgeous earth reminds us that we can only taste a glimpse…
What a cool thought it is, though, knowing how beautiful the sunsets and life moments are now in a tainted, fallen world…how much more beauty will we experience in heaven where all the bad and sad and everything that taints the world….is gone…
