Beautiful SunRise and puffy clouds.

Rise To Meet The Sun

If you want to be the first to see what the day has to offer, stand on the hill and be the first to see the sun.

Keep in mind that there is a possibility that someone else is standing on a taller mountain.

It really shouldn't matter. Eventually, even those down in the valley will see the light.

If you want no part of the day, try staying in bed.

Chances are the sun will find you, still.

The sun waits for no one.

At the back of my property, we placed a converted shed we call "Hope House."

Long before I am ready the house up on the hill begins to glow ever so brightly.

First the peak and then washing slowly over the top of the door, it reflects back toward where I am standing.

Imagine a spot light on one single object on a darkened stage. There, now fully exposed, the house on the hill beckons me and I run up the pathway in a hurry to claim my spot in the sun before it even kisses the petunias in the window boxes.

For me "Hope" glows in the early morning sun but I need not see it to know it's always there.

I have seen the sun rise for more than 59 years. It is only lately that I appreciate it more.

Get up before the dawn and with the rising of the sun you will not waste a moment.

For it is not just another is another chance.

So, what does it bring?

That is best answered by asking "What will you bring into it?"

The sun does not bring sadness, nor joy. You do.

The sun does not create success or failure. You do.

The sun does not make opportunities. You do.

God does not sound an alarm nor call your name in the early morning hours begging you to participate.

You must "Rise to meet the sun."

"I believe in You!"
