Sunset over Scarborough (A Christian’s Point of View)

Last night was one of those moments that took my breath away.  I stepped out of the Walmart around 9pm because I had to go return and item but wanted to wait until my daughter was in bed, so we could have our usual routine.  Well, it was a lovely walk there (minus traffic on Kennedy) but an even lovelier walk back.  As I said before, sunset came around 9pm yesterday.  It was so incredible that I stopped right where I was near the end of the parking lot (the part no one ever uses), set my bags out and got out my phone.  First thing I did was call my husband and let him know that, if our daughter was still awake, she should really have a look outside.  You can’t see much of the horizon from our place but I figured, she would see some.  Then I took pictures.  I wish my camera phone did it justice but there are just some things you have to be there and experience.  I did get some amazing shots though that I’m excited to share with you all.  So, here ya go!

As you can see, it was a pretty spectacular sunset.  It got me thinking too.  How can we say that evolution or chance made a sunset like that?  How can some people think earth is an experiment by aliens or whatever other nonsense they come up with to explain away an intelligent, loving creator?  I see God’s fingerprints all over this sunset!  In fact, the colours in the clouds and sky look a bit like someone finger painted them.  I walked home with the sunset above me and couldn’t help but smile and thank God for letting me see it.  I am not always outside when a sunset appears.  And lately, it’s been pretty rainy so any sunsets that have happened have been hidden behind a cloud.  What an incredible gift to be able to experience this sunset first hand.  Like I said before though, my camera phone didn’t do it justice.  There are some clouds down near the horizon that had deep pink in them but I don’t think my phone really captured them.  Anyway, I just wanted to share my wonderful experience with you all.  I hope you enjoyed the pictures!  I need to remember to carry my actual camera around for stuff like this. 😀
