Saving the best for last

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched- they must be felt with the heart.”
― Helen Keller

Does He give us His very best at the start of each day?
The time when our senses are the most fresh and keen?

Does He give us His very best at the noonday hour?
The time when we begin to lose our steam, seeking a needed jolt to make it through the day?

Or does He save His very best for the end of each passing day?
When our eyes are weary and our senses dulled, when our strength is gone
and our hearts are low?

    Julie, God gives us God’s best all the time. God loves to bless us – we are so loved. Blessings to you and thank you for sharing your amazing photos.

    • I know Lynda–but I thought it was so great seeing such a beautiful sky at the end of the day, a time when you think the day is done and there’s nothing left waiting to surprise ,wow or awe you. . .then bam. . .a stellar sky—a big “I’m still here, it’s all good and you are loved, even as the day is now over. . .” so great!!! 🙂

        You are right, for sure! God does surprise us with such a gorgeous sky at the end of the day. It is like getting a big hug.
