This time of year, I love the early morning light. There is something about the combination of the position and angle of the sun, the pale winter sky, and the way the bare trees’ shadows stretch across the backyard—it’s beautiful. Even the sunshine cutting through the railing on the deck draws my eye.
Over and over, day after day, the sun races across the edge of the world and darkness fades without a fight or a hope of staying. Just as surely, every year we move toward spring and warmth; despite the current cold, change is coming.
Perhaps my heart loves the winter morning sunshine because of the promises it represents: faithfulness, light, hope, coming change.
True beauty always brings good messages to our hearts. What message is it bringing to you today?
