When a sunset steals your breath

"The next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow leaves you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing and listen as heaven whispers, ‘Do you like it? I did it just for you.' " — Max Lucado

A few months ago I saw this quote on heavens-walk.blogspot.com and wrote it down to share with you here, about how heaven whispers to us when we see beauty.

One of my most favorite quotes, Terra. :) It just makes you stop and think and appreciate all the beauty that God has surrounded us with every single day. ♥ Thanks for the link back, sweetie! Bless you!

Pause, listen, appreciate. Good advice.

It happens to me all the time, especially because I love sunsets so much. We saw many on our recent trip to Mexico, but the best one of all was captured in my latest blog post if you want to go look. I call myself a sunset fanatic!

Very beautiful.

A wonderful quote, I actually try to follow it.
(It’s quite easy because I am usually totally on my own outdoors, with only the dog for company; there’s no one to disturb my reverie.

Oh, I love the quote and that is a wonderful reminder of how God has created this beautiful world for us.
Thank you for popping in to see me. Well, I wish I could have found a Windows 7 but it is what it is! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Great quote and what a beautiful picture.
When I see sunrises on my morning walks I think it is God saying Good Morning to me. : )

Very beautiful, and a perfect quote to go along with it. There have been many times that I have been blessed by such beauty and have been in tune enough to recognize the gift and say thank you.

Hope that you have a wonderful day, Terra.

Oh I love this comment, Terra, so much that I am going to write it down. What a beautiful sunset, and I do believe Heaven whispers to us through nature's beauty. Have a happy spring day.

So gorgeous! I'm often left awe struck by nature's beauty. The hand of God.

Hi Terra! First, congratulations on your book :) It's only now that I noticed it.

I agree about sunsets. I always dreamt of having my own place where I have a beautiful view of sunset and sunrise. A beach or a garden away from the city will do. There's really something magical about sunset and sunrise.

Wishing you a great week ahead!

Patty said...

Beautiful sunset. I want to thank you for visiting my blog. Please forgive me for not getting around often, it seems the older I get the slower I get. LOL I want to remember the quote you put on here. Have a great week, raining hee, has been all night. But i guess that's better then snow, I'm tired of the snow for now.

It is indeed breathtaking.

Marie said...

Oh, how I agree! We should remain in awe of the last breath-taking sunset we saw, as we move through each day...the last breath-taking gift of any kind from God! Lovely post!
