Several years ago, I saw a quote that has been a favorite of mine since that time. The quote is:
Every sunrise brings us hope,
every sunset brings us peace.
Monday morning, shortly after learning of the tragedy in Las Vegas, I took this picture of the sunrise.
That evening, after a day filled with thoughts and prayers for all those affected, I took this of a beautiful sunset sky.
As for the quote, I’m not really sure the sunset, although tranquil enough, really brought me peace.
But, as difficult as it is to do, we just have to trust that there’s a plan in place by Someone greater than any of us. And it’s my personal belief that we aren’t meant to understand why things happen as they do; it’s just all part of that plan coming together.

Thank you! Lovely photos and message.
Sensitively said and pictured.
Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures and thoughts in such a sad time.
I know.. It’s a tragedy that’s difficult to understand and explain. A very thoughtful post on TheseDays …
Very nicely done, Dianna, and I completely agree that there are things we do not understand, that is were Faith comes in. ❤
I LOVE your special quote and the sentiments expressed in your pictures. It is so hard to understand such senseless violence. But tomorrow morning we wake up full of hope again and rest in the peace at the end of the day. God Bless all.
Yes….it’s not our place to question His plan; and I’m sure everything is part of a bigger plan with a higher purpose. I admit there have been a couple of times I’ve asked Him “why”……but sooner or later I’ve always figured that out. Beautiful photos………..
I can’t agree with you more, Dianna. We don’t understand the things that happen and our hearts cry out, “Why?” All we can do is trust and hope and spend lots of time on our knees to the One who holds us all in His hands. Beautiful photos and lovely words, my friend.
