This Week’s Pic Pick

Firey Sunset4Once again, I have put my hobby on the line by turning the content of my Saturday morning post over to you, the readers commenters. A huge risk that I am willing to take.

Once again, we have a one-vote winner in the Friday Photo Query. Mrs. C. liked the image of the recent orange sunset that we experienced here in Cody during the Citadel Fire.

I have to admit when I first read her comment about sunsets, I figured it was going to end up being one from the Citadel Fire. Then I got to thinking that maybe she read April’s post about one of her pics being posted on the Wiki Heart Mountain page and that she was going to vote for the Citadel-effect sunset with Heart Mountain as the backdrop. She instead opted for the one looking across the YRA Business Park and toward the north end of Rattlesnake Mountain. The building that goes off the edge of the picture is the recently completed Cody Interagency Dispatch Center. I took this series of pictures when I looked out my window one evening and noticed a glowing orange. At first, I feared that I had overslept BY A LOT, but I was significantly calmed down when I saw the glow of the sun was coming from the west.

Anyways, dwelling on this picture this weekend stirs memories of a George Younce recording I heard last year (HT: Thoughts @ 3 AM):

Beyond the sunset, Oh blissful morning, when with our savior, end days begun, works all be ended, oh glorious dawning! Beyond the sunset, when day is done.

Should you go first dear, and I remain, to walk the road alone, I’ll live in memories garden dear, where the happy days we’ve known- In spring I’ll watch for roses red, when fades the lilac blue, and in early fall, when brown leaves call, I’ll catch a glimpse of you.

Should you go first, and I remain, to finish with the scroll, no lengthening shadows shall creep in, to make this life seem droll. We’ve had so much of happiness, and we’ve had our cup of joy, but memory is one gift of God, that death cannot destroy-

Should you go first, and I remain, for battles to be fought, each thing that you touched along the way will be a hallowed spot.I’ll hear your voice,I’ll see your smile, and though blindly I may grope, the memory of your helping hand, will bore me on with hope.

Should you go first, and I remain, one thing I’d have you do- walk slowly down that long, long path, for soon I’ll follow you- and I’ll want to know each step you take, that I may walk the same, for someday, down that lonely road, you’ll hear me…call your name.

Beyond the sunset, Oh glad reunion, with our dear loved ones, who’ve gone before. I that fair homeland, we’ll know no parting, Beyond the Sunset, forever more…

Beyond the sunset forever more!
