31 Days – Day 2 – Autumn Texas Sunsets and Sunrises

Oh my goodness have you taken a moment and stopped to watch the sunrise and sunsets?  They are breathtaking and spectacular this time of the year.  I’ve gone outside to water and headed back in the house for the camera.  Even my husband has walked in the house and said grab your camera.  We stop for sunrises.  The first two we shot a week ago in South Texas.

The next three pictures were of the first sunrise of Fall 2015.

I shot this one from our den window yesterday morning.  I stopped what I was doing and had to take a few shots as I was struck by the sun’s rays as I was sitting on my sofa writing.

This is a picture of the last sunset for Summer 2015.

Psalm 191b (NIV)

As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, I love this time of year.  It’s one of the most relaxing for us as we are ending summer and the mowing is almost at a standstill because there has been no rain.  My husband and I will be cleaning up the kitchen and see a sunset like the one above.  We pause and thank God for another day.

I so want to drive out to the countryside and take some pictures in the days ahead and maybe even get some shots at an upcoming trip to the Texas coast.

“I cannot endure to waste anytime so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”  Nathaniel Hawthorne

  1. Beautiful pictures and bible verses. Thank you for sharing such beauty for the soul. Blessings to you and yours this Fall season.


  2. I love the pinks in the sky. On days that have been incredibly tough, I’ll almost always see a pink sunset and say out loud… God knows my favorite color is pink…He’s just telling me He loves me.


  3. Beautiful photos! I, too, love to watch sunsets and sunrises if I’m up early enough. I love to watch the clouds float by in a deep blue sky. I love the colors of the trees in the fall. The heavens truly do declare the glory of God! I’m visiting from Sunday Stillness.
