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.
