Fall is only a recent memory. The official Christmas countdown has begun, along with Hannukah and Advent. I love these early days of winter. The trees have lost all of their leaves, and the sky is beginning take on a somber hue on my drive home from work. But I get to see the start of sunset and amazing views of the sky. On my way home today, The sky was covered in clouds with a few spaces in between. There were shades of violet and blue and alizarin dancing in the skys. Then I saw golden rays escaping from between the clouds. It was so beautiful, it made me catch my breath.
Traffic hummed along at a steady pace, and on my left, I could see just a hint of gold coming into view at the very bottom of a cloud. As the sun started to slip into view, the gold split into streams of light at the top and bottom. It was gorgeous. I actually called my sister to ask her if she could see the view from her house. I don't know how to describe the contentment and joy that wells inside me when I see things like this. I don't know why, but it makes feel like I just caught a glimpse of heaven.
