As a photographer, I find that it’s important to spend a little quiet time each day, away from the hustle and bustle of daily living. Before the phone starts ringing or the beeping of horns in traffic fill my mind, I love getting up before the sun to remember what I’m thankful for and to focus before the start of the busy day ahead. For me, because I am a Christian, I love to read my Bible and pray every morning while I eat breakfast–stealing away to spend some quiet time with my favorite person in the entire world.
What do you do to take a few minutes away from busy during your day?
Before the sun comes up in the sky, there is often a greyish blue painting everything and it reminds me of “cold,” even here in AZ where it’s usually 90 degrees in the summer by 7am. As the sun come up, it melts the cold blue of the morning air and turns it into a golden warmth that always finds a way of permeating the kitchen and casts long golden rays on the walls. It is my favorite time of the day and gives me hope for the fresh new day ahead.
Last night, AZ experienced quite a fierce thunderstorm. It was loud enough to wake me up and keep me awake for an hour while the hungry sky growled overhead and lightning lit up the sky and air in front of me. Torrential rains came down so strongly that you could not see beyond the backyard across the street!
This morning, some of the storms leftovers graced the windows and sparkled in that golden morning light. It looked so beautiful this morning that I wanted to share it with you all. A storm’s fury can tear through the night, but the sun always comes in the morning…..just like trials in life can tear through our lives in the darkest hours, but joy and hope will always come in the morning.
