On March 4, 2014, the author of a blog I follow had an interesting perspective on what he has learned from sunsets. See post http://www.weblessyourheart.com/2014/03/10/sunsets-gift-volume-1-of-10/
“Just as we feel a touch of sadness when the sun makes its final journey across the thin blue line, we too feel a hint of sadness when death appears in our life. But death is not the final journey just as today is not the final sunset.
This existence is an infinite theme park of which we are only riding one ride. So don’t worry, hold on, and enjoy it because as you watch that sun cross that line, know that when your time comes to cross your own life, you will be greeted by the next big adventure on the other side.”
Death is part of life.
