Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence...Isaiah 64:1

How do we show paradise
Til' we see God's holy son?
Eyes can only visualize
Beyond the setting sun...

There is no cause to say
That Satan's sins
Have won...
Where angels play
Their harps to violins
Beyond the setting sun.
Poetry by me, AJP

This is a combination of two pictures that I shot last evening...The sunset was
taken earlier from our car window and my hands on the piano keys later by setting my camera on a tripod.

I loved the sunset in the sky but I was a bit disappointed in the dark void underneath it in the original image and felt it had to be filled in...(Maybe for the same reason God created earth because he knew the void needed to be filled for heaven to be completed.

I dedicate this page to my late father whose favorite religious song to hear
was "Beyond The Sunset"...the poetry I wrote, are not the words to that famous song, but written in simple terms of how I perceive paradise.
