I know, almost a soap opera title.
As you may know we have some great sunrises and sunsets like the one above. The sun rises over our mountain, often in majesty and expectation of the new day. The sun sets over our flat mesa, often in color showing promise of the new day to come tomorrow.
In between the sunrise and sunset, our days can be windy, calm, sunny, hot, cold, rarely rainy or snowy. No matter the day we have, we always look forward to the sunset and the promise of a new day to come.
As I get older into the late afternoon of my life, approaching sunset, I’m aware that my life has been a lot like our New Mexico days.
When I was born I’m sure my parents celebrated their new son and the expectations they had for my new life.
In between my life has been windy, calm, sunny, hot, cold, more rain and snow than I would like.
Yet, in the approaching sunset of my life I look forward to the incredible sights and colors of heaven and the promise of a new life with my Lord and Savior Jesus.
