Skywatch Friday 18 – sunset at Breakfast Point

skywatch-friday I haven’t posted to Skywatch Friday in a while but last Sunday night’s sunset inspired me to rush outside with my camera. nov-08-014

These two were taken in the road outside our house. I went up to the oval (one street away) and took some more. The sky seemed to be boiling – a fiery cauldron that spilled magma.

And then it calmed and the fiery turbulence was replaced by an inky blue…

I could draw an analogy to my life and especially this last year (thinking of Malachi 3:3 here), but it would be just too obvious, so I will resist and let the sunset speak for itself.

My friend Steve lost his dad yesterday. This is from a tribute he wrote :

“Goodbye, dad. I love you and hope to meet you on the other side when my time comes. I saw a brilliant red sunset on the way home from work. It reminded me life will go on without you, and some day, without me. Eternity just ahead. Rejoice!  -scg”
