Are you focusing on the past or on the future?
Does it even matter?
it matters greatly which direction you are facing.
I, for one, enjoy watching a beautiful sunset
when the sky becomes an artist’s passion
as the sun slowly sinks low beneath the horizon.
Sunsets also refer to endings in life.
A time that used to be.
A life that has passed on before us.
Sunrise however is a new beginning.
A time of birth
and new life.
With the passing of time I have gained
A treasure store of shining moments from the past.
God uses those gifts to brighten my moments today.
It would be all too easy to keep facing the sunset.
To keep remembering as I gaze at the darkened sky.
Doing so might easily lead to sadness and depression.
with just a simple turn
I can face towards the sunrise.
and watch and wait for the beautiful shining of a new day.
As I choose to face the sunrise
my heart beats with excitement and anticipation.
A new day.
A bright beginning.
Laughter and love and hope.
Renewed energy and enthusiasm for life.
Sunsets or sunrises.
Both are part of life
but what matters is the direction our life is facing.
It all begins with a decision
to focus on the joys to come
to look with expectancy at tomorrow
to embrace the wonder of life in all its fullness.
Sunset or sunrise?
Your choice is more important than you might realize.
