Rise and Shine

“We can only appreciate the 
miracle of a sunrise
if we have waited in the darkness.”
-Author Unknown

I have waited in the darkness.  

I have waited alongside my husband and daughter.  Sitting quietly, whispering, and giggling.  Wondering, is it is our imaginations that it is getting lighter?   Or is the sunrise really near?

And then in glorious, slow motion we see the peak of this orange arch coming up over the bay.  And it gets bigger and bigger until we notice that we are no longer sitting in the dark.  We are no longer whispering or giggling.  We are in awe of the gift that God has presented to us.  Once again.

It is a new day.

And we are in love.  So many possibilities arise with the sun.  We are alive.

What are you waiting for?

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
   and the glory of the LORD rises upon you."
Isaiah 60:1
