It’s a rare occasion for me to be up early enough to catch a sunrise – but a few days ago Momma Gigi and I were sitting outside together! I was surprised to find her there on the porch. She told me that every morning she tries to catch the sun coming up! It’s rare for her to miss it.
We got into an amazing discussion – and I wanted to share some of it with you.
From Momma Gigi:
I love to go to the 4am prayer services because when the service is finished you get to see God’s creation at its best. I know when I see the sun begin to peak that God has blessed me with another day. It’s hard not to look at the sunrise and not know how big our God is.
Even if my life is tough and my children are hungry – I look at the sky and see the endless possibilities. I think that if the Creator of this world can make the sky look like that – then He can help me. And that’s where I draw my strength….from the sunrise. From God shining down on me. It gives me Hope in a life where there will be no more pain – no more hunger – no more sickness. So I make a point to rise early – so I can give God praise for His promise for a new day!
So today I am thankful for the sunrise!
For the hope and strength it gives to so many!
