Evening sky

In the evening of life we shall be judged on love, and not one of us is going to come off very well, and were it not for my absolute faith in the loving forgiveness of my Lord I could not call on him to come.
Madeleine L’Engle

(a mid June evening sky in Georgia / Julie Cook / 2014)

Sweetly calm gentle evening sky;
A hush falls over the land.

Oppressive heat thankfully dissipates
as now soothing evening air eases weary minds

Gone for today is life’s hustle and bustle,
serenely replaced by an unseen artist’s muted tones

A heavy head leans against the window’s glass
while inquisitive eyes watch Peace lazily pass by

The road seemingly stretches endlessly onward
carrying way-ward travelers safely home

Rest now found in an evening sky
as serenity covers the earth

  1. So lovely, sweet Cookie. I pray your day goes well and that the interlopers do not attack again today. Love and hugs, Natalie πŸ™‚

    • Merci Natalie—
      Reporting for duty on Day 2 of my sentry post:
      No new activity has been observed.
      There was a brief afternoon shower, finally wetting the varmint granules. The scent still fresh and clean.
      A lone doe was seen at the opposite corner of the yard before disappearing into the woods. . .
      Now if I could just get the blasted moles from laying waste to the flowers and small bushes lining the front walk. Most disheartening to pick up an entire bush that was established and healthy just last week, now sans any roots—-I’m being attacked on two fronts….but
      no worries, the Prime Minister and I will prevail πŸ™‚
      Signing off at almost 21 hundred hours.
      Gen. cookie

      • Wow, I’d have loved to get a shower here. It is hot, humid, windy and nasty. I’m glad some of your varmints have heeded the warnings, and I have faith that the Prime Minister shall prevail over the moles. Hugs, Generalisimo πŸ™‚

      • hot, humid and stifling is a good summary–in the 90’s and I was surprised by the 10 minute shower—I know the calendar has yet to proclaim it as summertime, but my money is on the thermomoter πŸ™‚
        hoping a stray shower will find you today—
        It’s now 7 am–I’m on coffee watch—so far, the coast is clear πŸ™‚
        over and out—

    Beautiful photo. I have been away visiting one of my daughters and her family for a few days so I’m just getting caught up. I hope your garden survives well. It is like our lives – we need to be aware of the predators and clothe ourselves with the armor of God in order to prevent the damage that the predator can cause.
