For my birthday earlier this month, my friend Christy gave me a daily devotional book called Jesus Calling. It sits on my counter and every morning, W and I read the paragraph or two that helps us kick start our day. The devotionals are from God’s perspective and usually speak to exactly what we need to hear on any given day ~ very cool like that!
For April 29th, the passage reads…
“The dawning of each new day is a gift from Me, not to be taken for granted. The earth is vibrantly alive with My blessings, giving vivid testimony to My Presence. If you slow down your pace of life, you can find me anywhere.”
Nearly every morning for the past couple of months, W leaves the house for work in the dark so that he can time getting to Bayshore Blvd. by sunrise. He takes the time to park his car and capture amazing photos of the sun just peeking from the horizon and whether it’s overcast or clear skies, the images are beautiful. He then emails them to a growing number of people who are offered an opportunity to appreciate their beauty, too.
