Sunset


As the sun sets this Friday evening and we settle in for a quiet evening this is the view from my front yard. I am reminded of this quote that I learned as a child......"The Sabbath calls our thoughts to nature, and brings us into communion with the Creator. In the song of the bird, the sighing of the trees, and the music of the sea, we still may hear His voice who talked with Adam in Eden in the cool of the day. And as we behold His power in nature we find comfort, for the word that created all things is that which speaks life to the soul." EGW
