Wherever the Sun Sets…

Aroostook Barn at Sunset

No matter what corner of the world in which we reside and despite what has transpired during our “today”, wherever and whenever the sun sets, the day’s end is announced by a fleeting but stunningly beautiful, soul-touching pause.

Between the busyness of our day’s events and the “coming to terms with” them, the splendor of reflecting and refracting light pulls our eyes heavenward. Self-awareness is suspended for an awe inspiring moment when astonishing beauty slows life and lifts spirits. The sky silently speaks, declaring the magnificence of Someone greater than us. He has “set His glory above the heavens”(Psalm 8:1), and we have just had a tiny glimpse of that glory!

From the rising of the sun to the place that it sets , the Name of the Lord is to be praised. (Psalm 113:3)
