Have you noticed the beautiful sunrises lately? A couple of weeks before my mother-in-law passed away, she sent Larry and me a most lovely note on a very pretty Dayspring notecard. I will cherish that note from her for the rest of my days. The cover of the card features a quote from a minister named Max Lucado that begins "Next time a sunrise steals your breath...." I must admit that sunrises frequently take my breath away and those I've been enjoying of late have been particularly spectacular. I don't know if it has to do with the starkness of a winter sky, but the early morning horizon has been radiant with color and vibrancy. I recently read this prayer: "Thank you, God, for this morning as I watched the blazing sun through a wintry sky." My body is still on Daylight Saving Time, so I tend to rise early and get myself ready for work earlier than normal. In so doing, I have this great opportunity morning after morning to see the blazing sun rise through the wintry sky. What a wonderful way to start my day.
