Stopping to capture a moment in time is something that we often forget to do.  When I was taken off guard by this magical sunset tonight, it sparked a sudden thought.  I need to take the time to capture more moments like this one.  More ordinary, extraordinary moments that can never be relived.  

A thought crossed my mind today which sparked this set of pictures.  The only absolutes in life are that there are, truly, no absolutes.

When you read this and look at these photos, I want you to know that I could not let another moment pass without letting you know how extraordinary you have been to me.  My heart is fuller because of you.

May you take a moment to notice something that might not have caught your immediate attention today.  May you record it in your memory and share it with someone you care about.

Ahhh, Deb--you've done it once again. I, too, appreciate you more than I can say. Your words, your pictures, your wisdom. Isn't technology just amazing. We live so far apart, yet are able to know each other because of technology. I am thankful! Have a beautiful weekend...

I beg to differ... There are absolutes! Those pictures were aBsOlUtElY Fantastic!

I love when you share your thoughts. There is a calmness that comes through the computer. That, my dear, is such a gift. In fact, it is aBsOlUtElY a gift.

Deb Dub,
Wow! Must be Karma...just yesterday I decided to have a sunset contest on my blog. Since I get very few comments, the odds are great! Send me your best one.

Hi my BFF. So excited about your beach house (hooray on the Sunbrella fabrics!!!). Ours is coming along, but NOT DONE YET! Sheesh. Closer, though!

Happy weekend to you! Enjoy some sunshine for me! :-)

What beauty God provides for us if we only take the time to notice. Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos.

Who can beat a sunset or a sunrise? It means we made it either through another day or to another day.

Thanks for your well wishes for Michael. His team was like the mailman and ran through wind and downpouring rains to finish the race in a new record time for them AND they beat Air Force's time(their campus "rival"--they respect them like crazy but it's been an ongoing rivalary for years between Army ROTC and Air Force ROTC). I don't know where the spoons came from but I made it through the day since 7 this morning and we just drove home. I didn't know if I was going to make it up the stairs. I will post pics of the race tomorrow on my Sunday blog. Hugs to you!
