Every morning we awake, we have been given an incredible gift of a new day. Enjoy your sunrises and your sunsets!
As the Day Star Rises
Billowing clouds outlined in soft peach and luscious lilac
proclaiming the arrival from whence the sun cometh
the morning star ascending in the heavenly sky
a vision, though familiar, yet never before seen.
The light, a seductive magnet
never tiring of its strength and influence
inspiring new discoveries of growth and exploration
spraying angelic rays through clouds to infinity.
Daily challenges attack our positive energy
yet fail to rob us of our joy
abundant blessings in the midst of my sight
what awesome creations given by God.
As the sun sets in the western sky
engulfed in glorious splashes of tangerine and violet
a tender serenade of nature’s background music
features salutations to the approaching dusk.
Anxiously we rest and wait
for the return of the powerful light divine
watching life unfold just a little bit more
never taking for granted the scope of its might.
