Every sunrise ushers in a new day.
A day of abundant hopes, dreams and possibilities.
And every day’s end brings a sunset…
A setting sun as unique as the day it is married to.
Some sunsets spread out in painted rays of orange and red…bold colors of vibrancy and warmth.
Others softly meld into the mountains. Quietly fading. Leaving no particular mark to signify days end other than the inky darkness brought by night.
Still others leave a skyline made jagged by the lofty landscape as it is enveloped by a sea of deep, dark blue… giving way to purple… easing into a vastness of pink. Creating a feeling of peace and serenity.
All are beautiful. All are unique.
However, every once and again, a setting sun will catch me by surprise.
Literally take my breath away.
Giving birth to a sunset so magnificent I can’t help but stop and stare.
It is this kind of sunset that fills the sky with fiery flames as the sun crashes into the horizon. Making a statement. Refusing to go quietly into the night.
As I watch with utter awe, I feel a stirring in my soul.
Just as the sun explodes in glorious color at day’s end, I recount my moments and wonder.
Can I create a life that splendid?
In my own way, I want to live like the sun.
With a fiery spirit.
With a desire to make a difference.
To make a statement…
To spread warmth…
To leave a mark.
I want to create my own fire in the sky.
Tell me. Does the beauty of a setting sun speak to your spirit?
