The morning sunrise to me represents a rebirth. A beginning to something potentially wonderful. In contrast, a person might enjoy an equally beautiful sunset. The difference to me is that a sunset marks the end of the day and leaves you with darkness. Whereas a sunrise leaves you with warmth and light.
As I prepare to go off and hear another service reflecting on another life, I can't help but to notice the representation that the sunset has on a funeral service. It can be very sad indeed. As we say good bye to someone that we loved though, I know that my glorious sunrises in the morning would not be possible if there were no sunsets. Each life lived brings with it the possibilities for even greater things in the future. In my opinion, we have everyone that lived before us to thank for what we have today.
The photo above was taken, as I typed this from my computer. The colors lasted but mere minutes. But it was a beautiful birth to what will be a wonderful day. Enjoy.
I'll leave you with this thought today...
Your value to people is who you are. With all your silly quirks, they are waiting for you.
