To start today in a different way, I shuffle back into the bedroom with my mug of coffee to floor-sit at the window.

I haven’t done this in a while. I used to sit here nearly every morning, till the comfortable new chair in my upstairs study started taking preference. Then later, to escape the rooster’s sunrise racket, I fled to the guest room for a quieter time with my Lord. 

But today, the thought of sunrise draws me, though I can’t guess how brilliant or bland it might be. 

It’s softly lovely as I first sit here, almost calling for a camera. But no, I decide, I just want to rest my thoughts quiet and alone with God and let the beauty gently bless me, uninterrupted by ambitious picture-taking.

But soon… it’s growing glory. I clamber up and run for the camera. 

And shoot. And shoot…

…and share with you, this morning, for any morning you need a sunrise to wake and cheer you.

So today, no profound thoughts. Just this, and a couple scriptures. Enjoy a glimpse of God’s glory manifest. And may He richly bless your day!


The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Psalm 19:1        
  The heavens declare His righteousness, And all the peoples see His glory.
Psalm 97:6
