Why Does God Paint Sunsets?

Tonight I was once again drawn outside to see a spectacular display of colors that God painted on the canvas of the sky. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous. I have decided that, besides my nieces and nephews, sunsets are my favorite thing to photograph. While watching the ever-changing colors and cloud shapes, I never tire of their beauty.

As I saw God's masterpiece develop before my eyes, I couldn't help but wonder Why does God paint sunsets, anyway? There must be some reason.

In the time I was outside, it was very quiet. There were no cars zipping by, no people around, nothing... just me standing there gazing at the beauty before me, and all I could do was worship God. Do other people do that also, or is it just me? I don't know how people could look at something like a sunset--or anything in God's Creation, for that matter--and say there's no God.

Then a thought came to me. Maybe that's why God paints sunsets. He made them for me to enjoy and to draw me closer to Him. Whenever I see a sunset, I'm mesmerized by their beauty. I don't want to move for fear that the colors will fade before my eyes, and I can't help but think You did a great job tonight, God. Thank You!!!!
