I absolutely love sunsets! I can’t help myself from whipping out my camera to take yet another picture of the sun as it slips under its sheets of silver water, putting itself to bed for the night. Even at home, I often step out on my porch and try to capture the colors in the sky as the sun drops behind the trees.
What is it about a sunset that captures our attention and holds it so strongly?? Why are we drawn to them with a power beyond our control, to stand and gaze until we can’t see a hint of sun on the horizon? It’s like a window to heaven opens for a little while, and we can see the just the lowest piece of the robe of God in all its stunning beauty. Like God gives us a little glimpse each night so that we know He’s there, in all His majesty, keeping watch through the night.
It’s one of the many ways God says, “I love you!” It’s a BIG way to express a BIG love. 1 Thessalonians 3:12 says, “May The Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else.” Love abounds. Love BIG or go home!!
