He called me from the tractor a few days ago and told me, "There's a pretty sunset tonight." I was hidden away in the basement office. I would have missed it without a reminder. And it was way prettier than any bouquet.
As I watched the sunset and the tractor move through the field, I thought of the Jason Aldean song, Amarillo Sky. The country singer may have been talking about a sky in another state, but it works in Kansas, too.
It says, in part:
He just takes the tractor another round
And pulls the plow across the ground
And sends up another prayer.
He says, "Lord, I never complain. I never ask why.
"But please don't let my dreams run dry."
Underneath, Underneath this
While I was out there, I tried getting a photo of a sunflower and the sunset. I wasn't thrilled with the results until I worked a little magic with the computer and made it more like a painting than a photograph.
It's not like God needs my help with gorgeous scenery. He's an expert at creating Masterpieces.
