peaceful sunrise

Because of the tender mercy of our God,

With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us,

To shine upon those who sit in darkness

and the shadow of death,

To guide our feet into the way of peace.

~ Luke 1:78-79

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful;

for beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament. 

Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower,

and thank God for it as a cup of blessing. 

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I see Your face in every sunrise

The colours of the morning are inside Your eyes

The world awakened in the light of the day

I look up to the sky and say

You’re beautiful

~ Phil Wickham

It was an early morning well rewarded:

first waiting in the dark,

next getting rained on periodically,

then being treated to this living canvas of light, shadow, shifting forms, colour,

and finally watching the Artist’s vivid brushstroke spread across the sky.
