The Sun Rises in the East and Sets in the West

So I'll admit, I don't live on the prettiest college campus.  There aren't too many trees and we're kind of set in the middle of nowhere with these random acres and acres of yellow grass fields.  But we definitely get the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  
I couldn't help to just sit on one of the huge rocks by the parking lot the other day and admire the sunset.  Isn't it gorgeous??

Though we may not have many plants on campus, from our classrooms or the dorms you can look over the town and enjoy the colorful trees.   Fall colors are so beautiful!

I took this picture last semester when walking back to the dorms from our cafeteria.  Imagine seeing these sunsets... every. single. day.  I'm so glad I get to live here :)

Probably one of the things I miss most about living in the dorms is waking up to the sunrise.  We had a huge window going all the way across one of the walls.  We could just look over the entire city and see the sun.  Majestic.

It looked even cooler on cloudy/foggy mornings. 

Well anyways, I know Thanksgiving already passed a few days ago, but this is one of things I'm thankful for.  God has blessed us with a beautiful world.  Thanks.

  "And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good."

Genesis 1:15-18
