Beauty of Sunrise


This morning, as I often do, I sat on my deck to have my time with God. One of the amazing things about the area where I live are the sunrises and sunsets. They are stunning! This morning, as I watched the sunrise and snapped some picks of God's beautiful handiwork, I thought to myself how unfortunate that my camera could not capture all the beauty.

The aqua is so much more vivid than reflected in the photos. The rich purple really doesn't show at all. The delicate pink is missing. The shining gold looks more yellow or orange. And the sparkle cannot be captured.

Add to the beauty of the sunrise, the wild beauty of the landscape. No manicured lawns here! Raw, wild beauty, just as God has created it! Mesquite with all its twisted branches. Yucca plants with their spiky leaves and pod clusters. Wild grasses and delicate flowers waving in the breeze. Baby tumbleweeds with their vivid, green hugging the ground. The slight haze that allows the world to wake slowly, gently before the sun bursts upon us in its heat and brightness. Loveliness all around.

And the sounds! No picture can capture the sound of God awakening His creatures. Birds singing. Dragon flies buzzing. A cow mooing in the distance. The horse next door nickering to his mate. Bunnies leaping and chasing in the grasses.
