A sunset, also known as sundown, is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the horizon due to Earth’s rotation (sundown – sun going down).
As the sun disappears below the horizon there is twilight, dusk, and then the darkness of night.
BUT the sun never stops shining, it just stops being where I can see it.
No matter how dark it looks or how stormy the sky is, the sun is still shining just like it always does . . . I just cannot see it because of darkness or a storm or because I have my eyes closed.
The light is always there—always!
Perhaps, there is a life lesson in this for me . . .
perhaps . . .
a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6.
My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)!
I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting!
Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
