Sunset is near as the shadows grow longer outside. The beauty of the day is encased in this light. Long shadows and bright light lead us to sunset and nightfall.

I have a friend who had a near death experience. She described it to me in vivid detail, and one of the things that impressed me the most, was what she saw after her spirit floated out of the OR and into eternity. My friend turned around from her old life, and saw the most beautiful sunset she had ever seen. She reported colors in that sunset that we don’t have on earth. She said there were no words for them, but when she saw the sunset, not the sunrise, she realized her life on earth was ending and her eternal life was beginning.

Every day we live, we have the opportunity for a new beginning with God at sunrise and closure with Him at the end of the day. We can ask God to infuse our lives with Him from morning to morning. All we have to do is to step aside and let Him work in us.
