Sunrise in silence

November sunrise

Sunrises and sunsets sometimes take our breaths away. Our chattering thoughts quiet. We sense the divine, the sublime, that which rises and sets beyond our ordinary perceptions.

A friend on Facebook this morning posted her own sunrise photo accompanied by these heartfelt words: God is GOOD!!! I have tears in my eyes. This is by FAR the most BEAUTIFUL sunrise I have EVER seen. Thank you Lord.

Yesterday morning my mind was busy creating stories while my hands washed breakfast dishes.

Suddenly, the sunrise stained the horizon beyond the skeleton autumn trees pinks and purples and yellows and oranges and blues.

I scurried for the camera.

What exists beyond our stories is amazing.

Wishing you many sunrises and sunsets where the essence of what Life is shines through our busyness, our preoccupation, our novellas of existence.

Blessings, my friends.  Silently sitting beside you as the sun rises and sets.
