I have always loved sunrises and sunsets. I love to get up early enough to watch the sunrise and I love to take time at the end of the day to enjoy all the beautiful colors as the sun sets. A.J. Lawless said: “It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes last for only a couple of moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.”
The Scriptures put it this way in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven— 2 A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. 3 A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up. 4 A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance. 5 A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing. 6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away. 7 A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak. 8 A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.” (New American Standard Version)
