One of the most beautiful blessings of where we live are the amazing sunsets that God gifts to us every day. With the changing of the seasons, there is also a change in the sky’s color palette: blazing red and orange turn into softer shades of pink and gold. Each is equally beautiful. This is sort of how life is. In our prime, we are all red and orange and ready to go, but when we begin the autumn of our years we tend to become more subtle. David Jeremiah writes “The autumn of life is a strange mixture of nostalgia, blessings, and potential. It yields the harvest of seeds we’ve sown throughout life and braces us for colder days to come.” How very true. While the enthusiasm and energy of our first few decades may wind down we still have many blessings to count and many opportunities to continue God’s work here on earth.
