Get Out of Bed, You Sleepyhead!

Or you'll miss the show....
7:01 am.
Retrieve the newspaper in bare feet (the driveway is C.O.L.D. in October!)
Hurry everybody, it's getting away!
Good morning world! Another day is started, with this gorgeous sunrise fading into a blip in time. I'm so glad I jumped out of bed instead of being a sleepy head, which was mighty tempting. The smell of brewed coffee didn't hurt the cause.

Do you ever wonder what the skies will look like when He returns? Stormy and fierce? Sunlight so bright you can't hold your eyes open? Big puffy white clouds against a brilliant blue background, or will it be full of streaks of red and orange and pink, with the sun just waking up? Mornings like this always make me wonder.

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. Luke 21:27

Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven. Acts 1:11

Mornings like this give you just a taste, don't they?

Beautiful sunrise!! Thanks for sharing it with us! I'm never away to see it, here...but lately there have been too many clouds and too much fog to see it anyway!

Makes me wonder, too... as do the sounds of wind blowing in the trees. I always think of these mornings as God whispering to me, and can't even contemplate the sounds when He returns. Awesome to think of, isn't it?
