We have some of the most amazing sunsets
over the Bay in front of our house.
It can be dark and dreary for most of the day
and just before sunset it will clear
and we will get a sunset that ends like this.
The color is exactly as it appeared
straight from the camera.

It started like this...
The sun still just a bit above water level behind 
a bit of cloud cover.
Slowly the color deepened.
And the sky glowed brighter still.
Then the sky darkened and the glow began to fade.
Another beautiful day has ended.

You all turned out to pray for Sandie the other day.
Here is the note I got from her daughter, Kelly, 
last night.

I can't thank everyone  enough for all your prayers for my mom.  The doctors said they finished early and that it went well.  The preliminary report suggests it had not spread to nodes!!  Final report in about 5 days.  They said she did great!!  Now to the healing process.....


Thank you for all your prayers!!  Kelly

God bless you, Sandie,
I can't wait to see a post from you again!
Thank you EVERYONE 
for all the prayers and 
good thoughts sent her way.

See y'all later today.
I have the Sisters Three here 
for a couple of days.
My Three Little Cookie Makers!
They might make YOU a special treat 
if you are
very, very good!
Ha!  THAT is gonna be hard for some of you!
Guess I just might have to eat
YOUR share!;>)

  1. Beautiful sunset and wonderful news! Isn't God Awesome!

  2. Diana, I would watch the sun set every there. Just beautiful. That is the best news about Sandi. You'll be busy again today then. Tell me if my cookie is any good. LOL. Those little girls would be so fun to be around. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  3. Gorgeous sunset... glad all went well with Sandi.
    The girls are adorable as always... V

  4. your photos are beautiful today, your grand daughters as sweet as their cookies but you brought ears to my eyes with news of Sandy, such great news!

  5. NOthing like the beauty of a sunset. Those girls are prettier than the sunset!

  6. That is a gorgeous sunset! We've been having similar days with cloudy conditions all day, and then the sun appears just in time for a sunset! Are the girls going to be young business women this summer? I know you will have a good time while they are with you. xo Nellie

  7. Beautiful sunset ~ so peaceful! Of course, the girls are adorable. :) Wonderful news about Sandie ~ there is such power in collective prayer!


  8. thank you for capturing this beautiful sunset, and showing it to us. how lucky you are, to have such an uninterrupted view of all sunsets!

    i have noticed this phenomenon... a dark, gray day... then about sunset, the sun seems to break out, "under" those clouds. and peeks in at us, for a few minutes. it also happens at dawn... sunrise will promise a nice day... but clouds come, soon after. again, it seems as if the sun gets to peek at us for a few minutes, under the cloud cover.. :-)

    wonderful news.

    have fun with the girls.


  9. I was hoping to hear something this morning when I came to the laptop. Thank you for sharing this good news!
