|Rachel's grave is straight ahead on the other side of this field.|
I got out and picked up a few of the pedals from her tulips that had fallen.... probably from the rain we had earlier this week. The fragrance of her flowers and the flowers on the trees near by, mixed with the pretty sky had me in awe.... I took in a few deep breaths and got in the van to head home, knowing Asa would need to eat soon. When I got in the van, the lyrics on the radio said "you'll be in my dreams tonight" - I called Matt and immediately was bawling again. As I drove out of the cemetery, I was so amazed at the scenery in the distance, I pulled over to take another picture - tears still streaming down my face.
What you can't see in these pictures, other than how rich the colors actually are, is the fact that in the distance there was the outline of mountains. I have never noticed this or seen a sunset like this in all my days and nights visiting Rachel. I got out to take this picture and said out loud "God, you have the most beautiful color pallet"
And I truly felt like He was thinking of me... little old me.... when He drew this in the sky tonight.
Maybe I'm just being self-centered though... I'm sure there were many other people who needed to see this tonight. Or maybe He just loves me that much.... who knows.
