I can’t think of a more beautiful reminder of a new day, new hope and new beginning than the sunrise each morning. If you haven’t witnessed the sun coming up recently, then take the time to do so, you won’t regret it.
There is just something magically reassuring to see the darkness gradually give way to the approaching light. Then all of a sudden the sun will break over the horizon and light up the sky with rays of color that spread until the darkness has to flee before it.
I am so thankful for sunrises, though the night might seem long, cold and bleak, the sun brings warmth and clarity. Things that were hidden in the dark are made known in the light. So it is that when life seems dark and hopeless we can remember that the sun will soon shine again if we just hold on, just wait a little longer, we will be rewarded with a brighter day.
