Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its going down (sunset) the Lord’s name is to be praised. [Psalm 113:2-3 / NKJV, parenthesis added]

Can you hear the music in the sunset?
Its enchanting sound beckons mind and soul
To pause amidst the chaos of the day
And reflect on the panoramic splendor of the moment

The crescendo of the colors –
Brilliant at first, then slowly fading
Clouds reflecting the radiant hues
Captivate all thoughts and fears

As the cosmic music dissipates
The day ends with expectant promise
Of the normal ebb and flow of life
With its blessings and regret

Through each sunset comes the sunrise
A renewed reminder to start afresh
Each fading color echoes softly
The opportunity to live and love again
