Chasing Sunsets

I was on my way home from an outing with friends, completely exhausted and stuffed (it was a restaurant crawl, talk about glutenous!), when I heard one of my favorite songs.  I was in such a rush to get home that I didn't even look around to see one of the most beautiful sunsets.  And the mountains ahead of me. 

This song always makes me feel washed over by God's love.  The words are overwhelming in the best kind of way.

So the moment I got home, instead of falling in my bed like I first wanted to do, I grabbed a blanket and ran up the hill to watch the sun set over the mountains.  I tearfully thanked God for the beautiful gift he gave me, gave all of us, that night.

I cherish these moments.
