The Pardes Sunset Project – Evening of 11/7/2011

Too often the shades of our life are drawn and God’s magnificent colors are missed.  I am taking on this project as a means to stop and enjoy God’s brilliance.  For the month of November, each day I will document the evening sunset from the Pardes Beit Midrash. I hope you will stop and notice with me. And I hope we can all share a moment of gratitude.

Today I am feeling gratitude for life’s ability to work itself out. I’ve been in a rut for the last week, feeling unnecessarily stressed and worried, but this evening my bubbles are beginning to pop and I am seeing life more vividly. I feel embraced in this evening’s sunset. It is spectacular – the beit midrash pauses for a moment to gaze out the window then returning to learn with renewed color.
