Sunset Veil

Sunset Veil

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

So go the lyrics from Fiddler On The Roof and so goes another day. A veil of rain drifts by the setting sun over Caribou Lake as God seemed to be drawing the curtains closed on another day.

Today I was reminded how fast the days fly by and the seasons and the years when my wife reminded me that our oldest daughter would be turning 30 this year. It seems like only yesterday, when I held here tiny frame, until I realized that was 10950 sunsets ago. What happened, where did the time go? I've been so blessed and I've taken so little time to thank God.

I resolved to make each day count, to appreciate my family, my friends, the little things that make up a lifetime and especially to give glory to God who spins the planets and holds the stars in place so that we can know Him through His creation.

When I look at a sunset I realize how small I am and how big God is, and in knowing Him is rest for the soul, much like the sunset tonight.

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. (Prov 3:20)
