I love the wide open spaces along the Sefton coast. Ainsdale in the middle of winter, with the sun disappearing behind the Welsh hills, and not a soul to be seen is refreshing and wonderful. But what makes it infinitely more wonderful is the knowledge of the Creator who made it all, and ensures that our sun rises and sets day by day. Truly it is God who makes the going out of the morning and evening to shout for joy. The knowledge of the God who made all this for His glory and our pleasure, and the assurance of our being known by, and redeemed by that same God makes the moment of standing by the sea, watching the sun set to be one of joy that far too many inhabitants of this world never experience.
So, enjoy the sunrise and the sunset, whether you see it, photograph it or just live through it, knowing that there is joy in knowing and being known by our Creator God
