Sunset in Aptos

Sunset in Aptos

There can be no words to describe the glories of God’s creation. I am currently hunkered down at a beach house in Aptos, California. My wife is a photographer, my sister is a photographer, my mom is a painter, and my dad is a musician. There is no lack of creative talent in this house, and yet there has been one common theme when we talk about the sunsets here: there is no way we can ever replicate that kind of beauty in our media, no matter how hard we try. Our cameras can’t capture what our eyes can see, and our paintbrush can’t recreate the ever-changing colors as the sun sets. This picture was one of my many frantic attempts at capturing just some of the beauty that takes our breath away out here.

To God be all the glory.

Psalms 136:1-9

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of gods,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who alone does great wonders,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who by understanding made the heavens,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who spread out the earth above the waters,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who made the great lights,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

the sun to rule over the day,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

the moon and stars to rule over the night,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

    My heart thrills as you turn all praise back to the KING! I love reading glimpses of what the Lord has wrought in your precious heart my son.

    So, so true that we cannot possibly capture His creation, yet it inspires and challenges us to do so.
