Be Still

I love sunrises and sunsets (I must admit I don't see a lot of sunrises).  The other night the sun was setting as my daughter and I were rushing from Target, to get home to start dinner, to get middle kid to basketball practice.  But the sunset was amazing (much better than this cruddy phone picture is showing).  And I knew that we needed to drive somewhere that we could appreciate it a little better, so we did.  And we sat for a few minutes in quiet, appreciating God's handiwork, breathing and thanking Him.  I was reminded that in this busy season, we need to take time to simply be still and know that no matter what craziness is going on in our lives, He was, is and always will be God!  I needed that reminder, especially as we wait for some health news about my husband.  In case anyone else out there needs that reminder too, I had to share.


  1. Becky - that is just GORGEOUS!!! And I'm praying for you and your family...

  2. Thanks for the beautiful photo and the reminder.I too am awaiting medical test results. You are so right, He is always God and will always be in control.
    I am lifting up your husband and family in prayer.
    Blessings, Annette

  3. It's hard to remember to take a moment for Him, and I'm always grateful for little reminders like a bird at the window or a beautiful sunset. Hugs.

  4. Thanks for the reminder; a beautiful sunset always slows me down too. There's no artist that can create a scene as beautiful as our heavenly Father.


  5. Wow this is such a beautiful post and a beautiful picture!

    I'd love it if you could stop by my blog and check out my 1st giveaway!


  6. Whata lovely reminder of what is important.

  7. What a beautiful sunset! Thanks for the reminder, Becky! Our God is an awesome God!

    Will send one up for your husband. It's hard to wait... Pray all is well.

    Take care,

  8. Beautiful picture! I hope you receive good news for your husband!
