The gift :)


What do you think of when you hear the word?
Camping trips?  Beautiful pictures?
Not seeing it because you like to sleep in?   
I love sunrise.  I actually love dark & early, then...

An old saying goes something like this:
"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. 
That's why it's called the present."
God's gift.  Our present.

Like a shade rises from covering a window, seeing the sun come up over the horizon - growing, shining, with an ever-increasing amount of light - brings forth a whole new beginning….
I can't help but think that God designed the beauty of sunrise for a number of specific reasons.  It’s a splendor enjoyed by those who make the intentional decision to get up before dawn to watch the display of God's unwrapping of the gift of a new day through the unveiling of a sunrise.  A proverbial paintbrush and palette, producing a masterpiece of unique color and display that cannot be imagined, predicted, or repeated. 

Dawn’s production.
Displayed in majesty. 
A new day arises, yawns, stretches, and begins.
“Yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; 
today is the only cash you have - so spend it wisely”
