How Would You Describe It?

No words that I know, in English or Portuguese, can explain the feelings evoked by a breathtaking sunset from our front porch. Probably the closest would be the Portuguese word "saudade" which, unfortunately, has no English equivalent! Saudade of my children and family in the USA; saudade of our dear supporting churches and pastors and the fellowship we have had over the years; saudade of my dear Mother, brother, baby and 3 grandchildren who have gone on before; and saudade of the beautiful place where I so long to my Saviour's feet.....Beyond the Sunset!
