To Keep a Promise

There is great promise in a sunset that paints the sky with the glories of today, while knowing a sunrise carries that palette to a sky on another horizon.

There is great promise in the knowledge that one’s life partner is there whenever you look up, no matter what, and you are there when he looks up for you.

There is great promise in letting one’s children go when they are ready, and providing the open heart and arms when they need to come back.

The greatest promise of all is that we are loved so deeply that heaven came to earth so that we can know it, without a doubt.

Promises, promises.  It all comes down to keeping promises.
