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)
