Rising

I’ve always loved morning time. It’s my time…….mostly.

Recently I started running in the mornings. I begin when it’s dark but by the time I’m finished the sun is peeking over the edge of the small hills on my country road.

A sunrise is another beginning. Another chance. Another day to love and laugh and cry. Another day to live like it matters.

A sunrise could be the start of a brand new way of living. It brings a whole bunch of new opportunities. It could bring laughter and joy and forgiveness. And healing and compassion.

A sunrise is hope rising and light shining into our darkest seasons.

Since I’ve begun this new thing I’ve seen more beautiful sunrises in the past 6 months than I have my entire life.

The sunrises have been there all along. I just wasn’t there to see them.

I don’t want to miss anymore sunrises.

But as for me, I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.   Psalm 71:14
