Favorite Things Friday, September 9th Edition

One of my favorite things this week has been the amazing sunsets. After several days of rain the sun was beautiful to see, but the sunsets were gorgeous!

Have you ever tried to slow a sunset down? They happen so quickly, and no matter how you try to savor it and hang on it just keeps slipping until all at once it's over. Thankfully, we only have to wait another 24 hours until the next one.

Sunsets always remind me of God's love. If He paints the sky in such amazing hues everyday just to delight our hearts, how can we question His love for us? I know bad things happen, and we tend to focus on them, but have you ever stopped to count the beautiful, each one unique, sunsets in your life?
