Some evenings we just want time to move slowly, maybe even stand still for a bit. Don't you?
But the sun keeps trying to hide behind the horizon...
"Mommy, where is the sun going?" My oldest son asks, ever-so-sincerely. "Is it going into the water?"
"No, honey..." My voice trails off, as I think for a minute. "The sun has to go to the other side of the world so the people there can begin to have their morning... they have the sun while it's dark here and we're sleeping..." Simple answer, yes, but it satisfies for now.
And then I thank God for little toes and footprints in the sand,
for the blessing of little boys with curious minds,
for a Godly man who is not only a treasure, but also a great husband and father,
and I pray to remember this sunset, those sweet faces, these precious moments, forever.
Thank you, Lord, for evenings like these.
