The Land of the Midnight Sun

I believe Alaska has reached the 24 hour mark of sunlight but I cannot honestly say because I sleep through much of it but I truly now understand the meaning of "The Land of the Midnight Sun".  I mean I do know the meaning of the saying but actually seeing the "Midnight Sun" is something one cannot put into words. 

Our power went out last night for a few hours and when it turned back on it was 1am and of course I woke up.  As I was walking around the house and turning off lights, and shutting blinds, I came across a picture perfect meaning of "Midnight Sun".  I was in my son's room shutting his blinds and curtains and was immediately in awe of the sight God had put in front of me. 

I am just happy that I remembered to carry my phone with me and was able to capture this shot.  Since being here in Alaska I am truly amazed by God's beauty.  His beauty truly surrounds all of us no matter where we are on this earth; sometimes the Heavenly Father shows us things that make us stop and realize what He has created for us, His children.

  1. Wow, that is beautiful. My Husband will actually be visiting Alaska in June and will be able to witness this himself. He will be at Elmendorf A.F.B. in Anchorage for about 2 weeks. He is very excited. Thanks for the beautiful picture!
