One evening this week, once again I was awestruck at the beauty before me and surrounding me.
Snow on the fields, birds in the air, and the most brilliant sunset that I have witnessed for
quite awhile.  Honestly, as always, these pictures did not capture the magnificence.

 What an exquisite gift!  What a breathtaking way to say goodbye to another day!

"Earth, with her thousand voices, praises God."   ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge  "Hymn Before

On a side note, I read this recently;

"The diameter of the Sun is 864,950 miles.  If the Sun was hollow, you could fit about a million
planet Earths inside of it.  The distance from the Earth to the Sun changes throughout the year,
but it is usually about 93 million miles away.

The word Sun means "yellow dwarf".
I found these very interesting facts here,

What if I had been too busy to notice this Sun of ours setting in the western sky?

"If you get simple beauty and naught else, You get about the best thing that God invents."
~  Robert Browning

"In the heavens He has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom
coming from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat."
~Psalms 19:4 - 6

Thank you for stopping by today!

Just beautiful! We have had some spectacular ones lately! But you are right, the camera can not capture the beauty we witness in the moment.

What a beautiful way to start my "Sun"day morning, Judy. Each of your photos is breathtaking!
You have made me look at the sun in a new light :D. Not really intending to make a pun there, but it is true. I had no idea that many earths could fit inside the sun. Amazing!!

What beauty! We get some lovely sunsets here on the hill over our pond and we are so enjoying them. The entire back of our house is windows. Happy new week!
