Sunset over Retreat House

sunset over retreat house

“One night during retreat, I thought I missed the sunset, because I became distracted before setting out on foot for the bay. I rounded a corner of the house to find these colors waiting for me. God knew my longing and sent an infinite reminder of grace always waiting!”

  1. My story books usually ended with people walking ttowards beautiful sunsets, with the words: “and they lived happily ever after”. Your beautiful sunset, Pat, makes me want to “take off” (airport sunset)towards such a heavenly paradise, and there to live in eternal bliss. Thank you.

  2. What a big contrast of colours and yet still a wonderful insight! God brings order out of confusion. Be blessed.

  3. The day may be over, but God’s work is not done. It reminds me of the fire of Pentecost, ready to descend upon us. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    • So true, Barbara… Resistances turned to consolation when touched and transformed by grace! Thank you….much of my new ability to “see” more…directly linked to St. John Bible and Seeing the Word!
