I wanted to get an updated picture posted and this is the most updated one I have. I took this last week. We had to run outside before the sun went down. It took about 2 minutes after this picture was taken for it to go behind the mountain. When Joel and I were dating, we used to sit on this same bench, and watch the sun go down. I don't think we ever said, "When we have five kids someday, let's take their picture on this bench." Every time I look at a group picture of the kids and see howe they've grown, I ask myself, "Where has the time gone?" It seems like the older I get, the faster time goes. Watching a beautiful sunset is usually a time of reflection. It makes sense since another day has ended. I love it when I have a few moments to sit in quietness, look over that beautiul horizon at God's creation and just think about Him. I'm reminded of God's promise of Christ's return and how quickly that day is coming. What am I doing for him today with my hours that seem to pass so quickly?
