I didn't start out a morning person, but after years of getting up early I have grown to love the early morning hours. I still get a thrill from each beautiful sunrise I see and I am fortunate now to have a home where our view east is pretty much unobstructed. Now when a beautiful sunrise occurs I step out on my deck and soak it in. I have many sunrise pictures, but this is one of my favorites.
The journaling reads: Sunrise is one of my favorite times of the day. Its this peaceful time in the morning that is good for my soul, a time to reflect on my life and my walk with God. In these quiet moments my heart is full of thankful prayers, and my soul is refreshed knowing God is there.
