My office window faces the east and so I see the sunrise and not the sunset, naturally. However, I am blessed for this building which, I have noticed recently, reflects the sunset. At first I didn’t think much of it. But then I started to admire it, especially the reflection from the glass windows of the building opposite mine. Some may say it is just a reflection of a sunset, so what? But as I thought about it some more over a few consecutive days when we had sunny days, I began to realise the significance of it. It is my blessing…yes it is.
Sometimes things in nature happen this way – they can be blessings or misery. I realised how blessed I am because I can enjoy the sunset in the west even though my window is facing east.
We don’t miss out on God’s beautiful handiwork – one way or another we get to experience it. I recognised and acknowledged my good fortune to be able to witness this wonder of God’s creation – a sunset in the east.
