when I dream

20150302_182412when I dream

of what will be-

all I see

is you and me

sitting high

above the trees

as we watch

the setting sun

’till all that’s left

are twinkling lights

of a starry, starry

moonlit night

we dream of what

tomorrow brings-

when we’ll watch

the rising sun

I peeked through my curtains the other evening and all I saw was a cloudless, monochromatic sky.  No color to be seen. Imagine my surprise when I got an email a few minutes later from my hubby (who was at work) with this magnificent sunset picture!  Isn’t it so peculiar that I would see nothing… and yet my husband got this spectacular show of color? On the same night, only a few miles away?

But the beauty was that he knew how much I would appreciate it, and so he took the picture for me.

A picture worth thousand “I love you’s”!

We love because He first loved us.  1 John 4:19

      1. It’s lovely. I thought for a minute it was part of my home town, Minneapolis. God sure does some amazing art, doesn’t He?

    1. It is beautiful-isn’t it? Where our house is, there are a lot of trees around, so I don’t get a good view of the sunset. It was a nice surprise for my husband to send me that picture from his office the other day 🙂 Blessings to you!!


    1. You are so kind 🙂 I tell my husband all the time that when we are old and retired, all I want to do is be able to sit together and watch the sunsets and sunrises together! That really is my “dream” 🙂 Blessings to you!!

    1. I try…lol…I am not always successful, but love is the only thing that matters, right? And as you so beautifully say- Love is always the answer to the question 🙂
