The Lengthening of Days, a Meditation

Joseph Farquharson   Glow'd with tints of evening hours

While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease.
Numbers 8:22

Vincent Van Gogh   Enclosed Field with Rising Sun
In the heavens God has set a tabernacle for the sun,
is like a bridegroom 

coming out of his chamber,
And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
 Its rising
is from one end of heaven,
         And its circuit to the other end;
         And there is nothing hidden from its heat. 
Psalm 19:4-6
