Red sky at night shepherds delight

sunset 1

God spoke: “Light!”
And light appeared.
God saw that light was good
and separated light from dark.
God named the light Day,
he named the dark Night.
It was evening, it was morning—
Day One.

The sun slowly goes down over the horizon.As it disappears, the burning light of the sun dulls and becomes a huge disc of orange and yellow.The sun’s orange  mingles with the light blue colour of the sky and  produced a vast contrast of different colours like flames of fire, gold, bronze,orange. It is like watching a screen slowly changing colour. The scene is truly beautiful. The dull light of the sun somehow illuminates everything. Everything was almost still and the effect of the light made the scene look like one in a painting. The sun was gradually going down and by the time it almost disappeared, the sky had patterns of different colours, from light purple to a dull blue. The scene is mesmerizing. I stand quiet and watch and this golden disc gradually disappears to rise in another place. the birds are just silhouettes in the sky.

The sunset  signalling   a time of rest for, a time to recuperate from the trials of the day.

The stillness gives time to reflect  on Gods creation.

Beyond the sunset,
O blissful morning,
When with our Saviour
Heav’n is begun.
Earth’s toiling ended,
O glorious dawning;
Beyond the sunset
When day is done.

Beyond the sunset,
No clouds will gather,
No storms will threaten,
No fears annoy;
O day of gladness,
O day unending,
Beyond the sunset,
Eternal Joy.

Beyond the sunset,
A hand will guide me
To God, the Father,
Whom I adore;
His glorious presence,
His words of welcome,
Will be my portion
On that fair shore.

Beyond the sunset,
O glad reunion,
With our dear loved ones
Who’ve gone before;
In that fair homeland
We’ll know no parting,
Beyond the sunset
For evermore!

Good Friday

The day is near, the time has come

Bread is broken, Wine is drunk
The deal is done, Fate has been sealed
Sealed with a kiss, the sign of love, no less
How times have changed, how people change
From cries of love, to cries of hate
The awaited one came, they couldn’t see
He healed, taught love but, still they did not see
Now time has passed, they’ve had their chance,
they chose their path
Hand are washed, backs are turned
The cross stands high, one of three, for all to see
Bang, bang, bang,
Nails,
one, two and three
The crown of thorns, to crown a king
Spills blood for sins He came to bear
The sky, it darkens
Father
Forgive , forgive, forgive
It’s over

BUT NOT THE END
