Sunset in an Asian Mega City

by Regin S. Reyno

Have you took time lately to watch the sunset? When was the last time to actually stopped and just watch the sun set? Many of us are busy nowadays, we are so busy that we fail to appreciate the beauty around us.

Ever since living in an Asian mega city, I failed to watch the sunset. The beauty-nature's beauty and God's wonderful way of saying He loves us-went unnoticed everyday. 

Sometimes we are so busy thinking about the future and dwelling in the past, that we fail to savor the moment. One of the things that can bring us happiness is to savor the moment-to appreciate the beauty, to take time and feel and experience everyday things that normally goes unnoticed. 

So awhile ago, I decided to go out and just watch the sun set. Being in a metropolis, it's quite unusual to see a person just watching the sunset-nevertheless, I went to witness nature's beauty-God's wonderful handiwork.

"Nature and revelation alike testify of God's love. Our Father in heaven is the source of life, of wisdom, and of joy. Look at the wonderful and beautiful things of nature. Think of their marvelous adaptation to the needs and happiness, not only of man, but of all living creatures. The sunshine and the rain, that gladden and refresh the earth, the hills and seas and plains, all speak to us of the Creator's love."-Ellen G. White, Steps to Christ, p. 9 ch. 1

"Be angry, yet do not sin." Do not let the sun set while you are still angry, Ephesians 4:26

Savor the moment, appreciate the beauty around you, smell the flowers, take time to meditate, and watch the sunset. Life is beautiful and is not intended to be rushed.

How about you? Where is your favorite place to behold the sunset?
