The image at the top of Express Yourself for Him was taken during a family vacation back in 2012. The sun was setting upon Seal Beach, just south of Los Angeles when I began taking pictures with my ipad. This is one of the few times in my life I actually slowed down to enjoy God’s creation in its infinite beauty as the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.
The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises, Ecclesiastes 1:5.
Five years later, doctors are wondering if my right eye will overcome glaucoma to see another sun set. Tomorrow’s surgery is science’s logical answers to my disease. Yet, in the heavenly realm, there are angels agreeing with prayers lifted by the saints. Perhaps a combination of the two may be what I need for a miracle to arrive.
God set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved, Psalm 104:5.
Either way, the future is a mystery, waiting to be unpeeled one day at a time. I wish I could say that I am confident of my eye condition, but I can only take things one day at a time. Therefore, I will press on with the Lord’s help savoring each sunset I get to see.
