The light would fade in an hour or two, but I had dinner to make,
and no time to go before the meal.
At dinner, I asked if any children wanted to come along.
Only one volunteered.
When the dishes were cleared, we left.
The drive to our destination was short, just 20 minutes,
but the sun light was fading quickly. And, I was in a hurry.
Driving down the road, I became annoyed at slow, hesitant drivers.
Didn't they know the light of the day was fading?
Resisting the urge to speed past or follow too closely,
I silently stewed.
Impatience welled inside of me as we stopped for yet another red light.
We are going to miss any opportunity for beautiful shots.
The sun was setting as we finally made it to the parking lot and parked.
Looking upward this is what we saw:
We hadn't missed anything.
We were not running late.
Instead, we were right where He wanted us to be.
...continuing my gratitude listing...
