Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

A Story in the Sunset

Sunrise.  The dawn of life—babies, fresh and new, pure, delicate, delightful! 

Morning, noon & afternoon.  The prime of life—strong, productive.

Twilight.  Aging beautifully, grace-fully!  Take time to treasure these precious moments.  And about the time you start to turn away thinking the show is done,  the color changes, intensifies. 

Finally it fades to a warm mauve glow that bathes the sky before the dark of night takes over. 

O Lord, you alone are my hope.
I’ve trusted you, O LORD, from childhood.
     Yes, you have been with me from birth;
     from my mother’s womb you have cared for me.
     No wonder I am always praising you!
My life is an example to many
     because you have been my strength and protection.
     That is why I can never stop praising you;
     I declare your glory all day long.
And now, in my old age, don’t set me aside.
     Don’t abandon me when my strength is failing.  (Psalm 71:5-9 NLT)
