Paintbrush In The Sky

Last weekend, while my sweetheart and I camped and fished at a nearby lake, it seemed that we were on the top of the world.The sky seemed to stretch forever. The cloud formations changed constantly. I didn't want to miss even one.As a result, I did a lot of cloud-watching. Nothing new for me. Just more to watch.One evening we watched as God painted the sky near the end of the day. It started with the sun shining on some of the clouds above the west end of the lake. As one end of the lake began to darken the other end was still bathed in sunlight. It began slowly. Ever to slowly. First, a soft peachy-orange color. Then more color. Deeper. Darker.

Pink. Deep pink.Filling the sky with color. Reflected by the lake below.And then it was nearly gone.Soon to be a memory.Through the trees - evidence that it had moved on. For someone else to see. And enjoy.

There will more sunsets. We will watch in amazement. But there will never be a sunset quite like the one at the lake. God's handiwork. In our hearts forever.


  1. Adrienne, these pictures are breathtaking. I am always awed by God's wonder.

    You should have put these pictures in our Pink Saturday even.

  2. Hi Adrienne
    What a beautiful sunset you captured. How anyone could watch a sunset and not believe there is a God is beyond me.
    That is a beautiful place to go camping. I missed chatting with you but will be back after the grands visit is over. If they ever get here!!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  3. Oh yes, you captured it!! What lake did you go to?? Hot sunny today huh! Enjoy your weekend. Laurie

  4. Hi Adrienne and thank you for visiting me this morning. Isn't that a sweet little song. Makes me want to dance and I really don't even know how to! Oh, my! Your photos of the sky are breathtaking. God does paint the prettiest pictures, doesn't he?
    Have a beautiful weekend.

  5. Amazing photos, Adrienne! Beautiful sunset!

    Thanks so much for coming by my photo blog. It's been since last Monday since I put anything on there. I looked at the Hosta, early this morning and just had to photograph them. I'm planning a garden blog, at the back porch, for tomorrow evening or Monday. I love the changes through the season.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. How peaceful and beautiful it all is. The best part? Blogging it means you can relive it and see the beautiful sunset again. I love that, dont you?

  7. Beautiful photos Adrienne! I always find that the photos never capture the true beauty of a gorgeous sunset but I can't imagine the real thing could have been any lovelier than your pictures.

  8. God does such beautiful work! Blessings, marlene

  9. Adrienne, those are just beautiful photos! I love watching a sunset...and over a lake makes it more special!

  10. There is no greater artist than the Creator of all that is beautiful! Isn't it awesome that He shares His creations with us so freely and allows us to preserve them at will through the lens of our cameras so that friends on the other side of the country/world can enjoy the beauty as well!!!!! Thank you for sharing these beautiful paintings with us!

    Blessings and hugs!

  11. I enjoyed seeing the painting by our greatest Artist!!


  12. My, what lovely pictures of God's handiwork, Adrienne!

  13. Oh, I LOVE this post!! Cloud and sky watching are a favorite passtime for me - you captured a very special sky indeed! Love the way you put all the pictures together with your narrative! I felt like i was there with you, watching the clouds roll by.... And thank you for your visit to my blog. I'm so glad you enjoyed the used bookstore post. I also grew up reading Nancy Drew!! I always knew there would be a new copy under the tree come Christmas morning!...Donna

  14. God's handiwork indeed!! He makes the most beautiful pictures for us, doesn't he?

    Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
