Just a glimpse of me...

My photo
Do you ever feel STUCK? In 2000, I began looking for answers to some tough questions in my life. I'd searched high & low and finally conceded to search the promises found in the Bible. Those promises have sustained & guided me through the loss of a parent, the struggle with anxiety & depression, the loss of a valued relationship and so much more! I've found joy amid the pain. And, I want to share it with you!

sunrise thoughts 19 October 2015

It was another cloudless morning with no hint of beautiful color changes when the sun would break the horizon. It was just the type of morning that I knew a drive around my "neighborhood" would be the perfect choice. The open farmland that surrounds me is so beautifully highlighted when in contrast with the sun & sky. As I drove along country roads with the windows down (and the heater cranked up high),
I heard the birds waking up & singing. I was once again reminded not to pre-judge what type of sunrise pictures I would get OR what my day would hold. I was reminded that with each new morning, we need to open our minds & hearts to what the day will bring all on its own.



The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.
~ Leonard Cohen, Anthem

YES... a great reminder... 

    We need to open our minds & hearts to what each new day will bring all on it's own.


From the song "Anthem" by Leonard Cohen
paired with a sunrise shot from today.
