Sunrise, Sunset...

holy experience

In the movie, Fiddler on the Roof, the daughter of the main character is getting married. In the background you hear the song, "Sunrise, Sunset". One of the lines in that song is "I don't remember getting older. When did she?" Isn't that the truth! The older you get, the faster time seems to fly by. And nothing causes you to face the truth about the passage of time, more than seeing your kids grown, and seeing your grandkids growing! But with each new day, between each sunrise, and each sunset, with each new season of life, God is worthy of praise, thanksgiving, gratitude.

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is deepest with me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not one of all His benefits. Who forgives everyone of all your iniquities, Who heals each one of all your diseases. Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption. Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving kindness and and tender mercy. Who satisfies your mouth, (YOUR NECESSITY AND DESIRE AT YOUR PERSONAL AGE AND SITUATION), with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle's -strong, overcoming, soaring! Psalm 103:1-3 Amplified Bible
