SkyWatch ~ Equinox Sunrise - Moonset

The full moon flees from a purple sky and dashes over the
hill top chased by the red glow of the rising sun.

The sun meanwhile bursts on the scene shooting a victory sign
high into the the retreating darkness

and shows her glory in a blaze of gold

setting the sky alight with a roaring fire.

With this God given glory, I wish each and everyone of you a

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . HAPPY NEW YEAR . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

May whatever God you believe in smile upon you and keep you
in good health, give you someone to love and of all things enough!

  9. Hallo Arija,

    an jedem Tag des Jahres hat der Himmel über uns gewacht und jeder Tag war anders. Vergessen wir die Tage, die nicht so waren wie wir sie uns geünscht haben und schauen mit Hoffnung in die Zukunft.

    Dir und Deiner Familie eine schönen Jahrswechsel und alles Gute für 2011.

    Lieb Grüsse Hartmut

    I have been reading you through Google Reader. Sometimes, I do not have the energy to visit. I only post to distract my mind. I don't even respond to the comments sometimes but I read everyone of them and am comforted. It's been really tough and so I tend to squiggle a prayer everyday.

    I think of you everyday. Tsup!

  35. Those are amazing shots of the sky. What a way to welcome the day.Thanks for stopping by at my last skywatch of the year. I hope that this new year brings you much love, happiness, and peace...
