The other night I caught this glorious sunset with my camera from my backyard.  It was breathtaking!  I decided it would make a beautiful painting with all it's colors and cloud shapes.  I think Texas has some of the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises around - but then I'm partial - being from Texas and all.


1 Chronicles 16:10 (New International Version)
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
