When The Sun Is Sinking Low…

Daddy always said ‘rise with the Sun so that you set the tone of your day,’ and throughout my growing up years, like clockwork, we rose way before the Sun.

Sunrise, Sunset, Days of our Lives, Our loved ones, Reflection, Life, Parenting, Love

Today the most important things I inherited from my dad are the ethics, the values, the wise words, the memories and the parenting influence that he had on my life.

Ever so often, a saying of his will echo in my mind and I feel suffused with the warmth of his presence albeit through his words.

As a child, I truly had no deep understanding of losing loved ones’ – not sure that I still do – and like the sunrise and sunsets of my young days, I felt that those that mattered most would always be there.

Well, I am deadly wrong. I think that life is so unfair to take away those we love and yearn for, on the other hand, I am deeply thankful that I had the opportunity to know such love.

Knowing what I know now, the glorious rise of each Sun, reminds me that I’m alive, that I must embrace the day and that there’s no time to waste in looking back at yesterday. By the time the sun sinks low, I’m reminded to leave every form of acrimony and as much as is humanly possible to end my day with a cleansed mind.

Below is a little tune from me. Excuse the croaky voice 😉

Oh I often sit and ponder
when the sun is sinking low

where shall yonder future find me
only God in heaven knows

shall I be amongst the living
shall I mingle with the free

wheresoever my path may lead me
Saviour keep my heart with thee

Oh the future lies before me
and I know not where I’ll be

wheresover my path may lead me
Saviour keep my heart with thee

Sunsets and silhouettes add mystery.

The people in the boat caught in the middle make it all the better.

Making Little Magic…

Our entire existence is magic.

When we wake up to a new morning, that’s magic.

When we watch the sun rise and set that is magic.

When we watch the beauty of nature,that is magic.

When we watch a beautiful flower bloom, that is magic.

When we listen to the chuckle and happy gurgle of a little child, that is magic.

To Love is Magic. It softens your heart to show kindness to others.

To Love is Magic, it makes you sensitive to others who form part of human existence.

Love is Magic because nothing transforms us like love and God is Love.

I love passing this trail on my evening strolls when the sunset gives its beautiful rosy blush to the sky. My aim was the little birdie perched on the cactus, but I like how the total image turned out.

The Edges…

I love normal adventures

and not the perilous ventures

of living life on the edge.

Some enjoy walking on eggshells

or dangling at the edge of a precipice

I love to keep away from the ledge.

Delightful Toppings…

Cherries on top are pretty and metaphorically speaking, I certainly love lots of cherry on top moments in my life 🙂


A day draws to a close with a gorgeous Sunset that always reminds me that every sun that sets also promises a new dawn and instils a warm sense of peace inside me. I remember my mother always saying that when you let the Sun go down on your sense of unrest you wake up carrying over residues of anger.

Love sculpture

Open up your heart and don’t close your mind. Let the cherries of other people’s love and care decorate your life.


Oh! My sweet desserts! I love such sweet talk 😉


Have a cupcake and a pleasant weekend 🙂

Glowing fountain

May the fountain of your life keep glowing with grace and cheerful light on top.
