Sunrise and Promises


How different are sunrises and sunsets.
Mornings––full of promises and possibilities;
evenings––times to celebrate accomplishments.
Life is full of sunrises filled with anticipation,
expectations and dreams to be fulfilled.

Only in sunsets is there time to reflect:
giving thanks for difficult times, finding strength
to endure one more day with heavy burdens.

The cycle continues, renews its promises.
God watches over us with never ending patience.
Another generation eager to view their sunrises
are unaware that sunsets will come too, in time.
