“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” -Carl R. Rogers

“Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of heaven.” -John Lubbock

“Don’t forget – beautiful sunsets need cloudy skies.” -Paulo Coelho

Sunset. One of my favorite times of the day. I believe we need to take time in our days to be still. We need time for quiet; time to be with God…and it seems, for me, sunset is the perfect time for reflection and thought. Throughout my life, sunsets have sustained me during times of stress; their “routineness” have brought peace and reminded me of God’s power, love, and strength. The next time you see a beautiful sunset, pause, reflect on your blessings, and spend a little of you time in quiet conversation with God.
